So proud of my team

9 December 2023

Danny Röhl has heaped praise on his players after securing our maiden away win of the campaign at Stoke.

It was a complete team effort from front to back, those in the starting line-up and on from the bench, as Wednesday clinched a crucial win at the Bet365 Stadium.

A Cameron Dawson penalty save and an injury time winner from substitute Anthony Musaba were the major talking points from a big victory in Staffordshire.

Delighted by the result, Röhl said: “We showed our improvements from the last weeks.

“Maybe four weeks ago we wouldn’t get a point in this game but now you are seeing the improvements from my team and I have to say also, thank you for my bench.

“It’s not always easy to not be in the starting 11 but I told my guys that it is important we have everyone on the bench ready because they can decide the game.”


Following a low key first half, the game sprung into life after the hour mark when the hosts were awarded a contentious penalty.

But Dawson preserved our clean sheet with a super stop from Ryan Mmaee’s spot kick and a buoyed Owls side went on to claim the win, with Musaba slotting home in added time.

“Today it was a difficult one because they changed their shape twice and we had to adapt a little bit and there were times when we were under pressure,” Röhl added.

“Cameron was fantastic today, he saved a penalty at the right moment and that creates energy and then at the end we can score – fantastic!


“It was a big topic, late goals. We have conceded also late goals but now, yes, we have the feeling what we must do as a team in the extra time.

“I feel that if we stick to our match plan and believe what we are doing then we can score every time and to do this today without conceding a goal is fantastic.

“We took our first three points away, which is also a fantastic feeling, we are on a good way and we need to keep going and on Wednesday we have the next tough away game.

“At the moment my team look fantastic, and I am so proud about them in the last weeks.

“It hasn’t been easy. Against Birmingham we deserved more and we lost the game but this is a big process and it is about belief. We have the feeling we can score at any time and the atmosphere in the changing room is fantastic right now as well.”
