Versatility and adaptability

20 December 2021

Barry Bannan believes the Owls’ impressive run of resistance is credit to the hard work and versatility of the squad.

Wednesday have had well-documented injury battles to contend with yet results have remained strong as we approach the halfway point in the campaign with everything to play for.

Saturday’s home game against Accrington fell victim to the current situation sweeping the country, before which Bannan gave a glowing report on how the S6 camp has overcome frustrating injury hurdles.

The skipper highlighted in particular the players who have shown great versatility and adaptability to step in and do the job.

He told “We’ve been scoring goals and also had the clean sheets which is important.

“When you look at it, we’ve been struggling with injuries to our centre halves, we have young Ciaran Brennan who I think has been brilliant and Palms and Marvin have been fantastic.

“To ask people to play out of position or in positions they’re not used to, it is difficult. It’s not easy but they have been brilliant.

“But we aren’t just relying on the defenders, we are defending from the front, as a whole team and it’s getting results.


“We’re always a goal threat, so we know if we can keep clean sheets we’re likely to go on and win games.”

Wednesday have lost just three times this season from 22 league games, and only failed to score on four occasions, including the recent 0-0 draw with Portsmouth which saw the Owls play over 20 minutes with 10 men.

Our unbeaten run remains on 12, Darren Moore’s side are fifth in the form table over the last six outings averaging two points per game and are currently just two points outside the top six following the postponement of the Accrington clash.
