The extra energy we need

15 December 2023

It’s a relentless time of year on the football calendar with the fixtures coming thick and fast.

One factor that manager Danny Röhl says will play a significant part is that the next two games are at Hillsborough.

After back-to-back away games, the Owls are set to host QPR this weekend and Cardiff next.

On returning to S6 in the Championship, Röhl said: “Tomorrow it will be a tough game.

“The opponent is on a run at the moment and taking points but when I look now to the form table you see that Wednesday are not at the bottom.

“One of the reasons for this is that we have taken points at home and I have spoken about this topic a lot – we know we have to be very strong at home.

“That is the basic thing, for us to be strong with our supporters behind us.

“They give us the extra energy we need. It is the key for us when we are at home, we have to take points. Everybody at the club, the players, the staff know how special our home is.

“There are reasons why we have taken points at home and one of them is of course the performance but the big thing is the support and patience from the fans.

“I always look forward to playing at home and now we have two games coming up here.

“I am so proud of my team because I can see that they are investing everything, even though we lost at Norwich we invested a lot and this is the basics of what we have to do.

“It’s what we have to do at home to give the supporters the feeling that we are fighting for everything.”

In terms of team news, it’s likely the Owls will have a similar squad from which to select that travelled to Carrow Road on Wednesday night.

"It is looking more like we will have the same squad as on Wednesday,” the manager continued.

“We will look today after the treatments but it will be more like the same squad. We also have to look to the next games because if we take too much risk now, it could mean we are missing players for the long term and it is about finding a balance."
