We wanted it so much

18 December 2023

The Owls captain was a delighted man at full time on Saturday.

Barry Bannan was as influential as ever as Wednesday picked up a crucial three points at Hillsborough against QPR.

Under Danny Röhl, the team continue to show progression, improvement and a fighting spirit so clear for all to see.

The weekend win over the R’s once again showed the boys’ ability to bounce back having fallen behind and push to the very last moments in the game.

Having got back on level terms through Bailey Cadamarteri, the big moment that sent S6 into a frenzy came on 94 minutes when Anthony Musaba blasted emphatically into the Kop net.

The brilliance of Bannan in the build-up played a huge part in the clincher and the skipper told us:

“We got the crowd behind us, they were brilliant and pushed us on and it was just a great moment.

“We knew we would get chances, it was just about patience and sticking to the gameplan and we came through in the end.


“When you want something so much and it happens like that, it’s hard to describe. There is no better feeling.

“We are all together as a team, as a club and fighting for the same things and going in the right direction. To see everybody as happy as that is an amazing feeling.”

As Wednesday keep on chipping away at the point deficit to safety, Bannan continued:

“Second half we were the better team, we were the ones forcing the game and dictating the game.

“We probably lacked quality in the final third at crucial moments, but it's the end of a tough week, boys are tired so you're not going to get the same quality.

"But what you need to do there is make sure you're fighting to the end. Once we got the goal, I knew we were going to push to win it. Once you get this crowd behind you it's powerful and that's why I was trying to get the boys back to the halfway line to give us more time.

“Whether we got it or not I didn't know, but I knew we would get chances. It's amazing. They were behind us the whole second half and drove us over the line.”
