Big belief in the team

14 March 2024

Nine games to go and all to play for.

Rewind five months and it was almost unthinkable that Wednesday would be in position to fight for a shot at Championship survival.

But the camp have worked hard and a vast upturn in results under Danny Röhl has given the Owls big belief that the season can conclude positively.

For Dominic Iorfa, the remaining nine games present a huge opportunity to complete a remarkable turnaround.

Having been in the bottom three for almost the entirety of the season, and at times adrift, the Owls are now in touching distance of several sides above battling relegation.

“It’s very tight now, loads of teams are in this and it is exciting as well,” Iorfa said.

“There are a lot of teams that can be dragged into it and we’ll keep going.

“As long as you’re picking up points we will have chance, we have nine games and if we can’t win them then get a point, every point will be important.

“The manager is very positive, there were good things from the Leeds game and also things he wasn’t happy about and he goes through all of them.

“There is no reason why we can’t go to Portman Road and get a result and that’s the belief he has given us.”

Ipswich away is next-up and it’s a side Wednesday know very well.

The two teams battled hard against one another to earn promotion from League One last season and via different routes, both teams achieved those aims.

The Tractor Boys have been strong this season and are vying for back-to-back promotions, but Iorfa believes Wednesday can upset the odds this weekend.

“They started the season off well and have continued that momentum,” he said of his former loan club.

“They deserve to be up there, they have been a very good team this year.

“They score a lot of goals, they are a good footballing side with good movement.

“We have played them often over the last few seasons, we know their style of play but they have been in great form this season.

“The big thing for us when you play against teams like that is when you get big chances you must be clinical.

“You saw against Leeds, there wasn’t too much in it in the first half and we got hit with a sucker punch at the end, the clinical edge is often the difference that makes you a top side.”
