We demand more

Josh Windass didn’t hold back on Tuesday night during his post-match interview following our penalty shootout defeat to Mansfield.

Soon after the final spot-kick had been taken Windass was out in front of cameras discussing his disappointment at the cup exit and to address our start to the campaign in general.

The Owls led against Mansfield until the 85th minute but having failed to kill the game, the Stags drew level and triumphed from 12 yards.

The Wednesday squad will now dust themselves down and head to Leeds on Saturday looking for a result and for Windass, everyone needs to show more for our season to have lift off.

“Another game that’s not good enough,” he told


“I thought in the first half we were quite sharp, to be honest. We started well, created a lot of chances, probably could have put some more away as a team.

“We hit the post and created a lot - we could’ve been two or three up.

“Obviously penalties are penalties, anyone can miss one, world class players do, but it shouldn’t have got to that stage.”

He continued: “We played against a team two leagues below us, and no disrespect to Mansfield - but we need to start looking at ourselves and start improving our performances.

“We’re disappointed, we’re five games in and haven’t won a game yet - this club demands winning.

“We’re not happy with how we’re performing, and we can’t blame anybody other than the players that are going out onto the pitch.”
