Our time to strike

3 November 2021

In a recent edition of our matchday programme, Wednesday skipper Barry Bannan discussed the importance of the team’s fixture schedule during November.

Prior to the S6 clash with Sunderland on Tuesday night, we had played six games on home soil and nine on the road.

To balance the scales, four of our five league fixtures in November are at Hillsborough and Bannan believes that will be a time to strike for the Owls.

And on that front, it has been a terrific start as Wednesday brushed aside Sunderland on Tuesday night.

Our one away fixture this month is at Accrington, while we also have home cup fixtures against Plymouth and Harrogate.

Bannan told ‘Wednesday’: “We’ve had a lot of games away from home, some big distances too.

“Over the next month or so, most of the games are at home so it’s a big month for us to capitalise on.

“Come December time I think we can be in a really good position. The boys are aware of the run we’ve got coming up with all the home games, that will be our time to strike so hopefully come December, we will look at the league table and be in a healthy position.”

Bannan was replaced midway through the second half against the Black Cats with the score at 3-0 after picking up a knock to his foot and manager Darren Moore said:

“The best thing to do was to bring him off at that time. We’ll see what he’s like when we get back into training.

“He led the troops well and had wonderful discipline. With the injuries we have, he’s played a different role but he has been absolutely exceptional. We know the ability he has got but it is his discipline for the team.

“We have been working on it with him in training. He has had to do a job for the team.”
