Clean sheets and scenes!

25 August 2021

The Owls head to Morecambe on Saturday aiming to protect a thus far impenetrable rearguard action.

Five clean sheets from as many games in league and cup has created a new club record and Dominic Iorfa is in no mood for the resilience to end there.

He told “As a collective we help each other out, from the strikers to the defenders.

“Getting that clean sheet is something we pride ourselves on during the game. When we were 2-0 up at Rotherham we were saying to each other ‘we do not concede, we do not concede’ and having that kind of mindset will stand us in good stead for the season ahead.”


Iorfa, who extended his current contract with Wednesday earlier this week, also credits the return of fans as having helped strengthen the resolve.

He added: “The support has been amazing, 25,000 and 21,000 for the two home games, over 2,000 at Charlton and obviously sold out at Rotherham. Those scenes after the game last Saturday were amazing and that’s what football is all about.

“It makes a massive difference, you can see when you watch games on TV, the atmosphere is everything. Games can go flat at times and fans lift them.


“That wasn’t needed at Rotherham and credit to both sets of fans because the atmosphere was electric all the way through. As a player, you want that, the fans just make everything so much better, and especially with our support.

“You always look forward to games but now the fans are back you look forward to them even more.”
