Sheffield Wednesday face fellow relegation battlers Stoke City at the Bet365 Stadium tomorrow, hoping to build on a brilliant performance against play-off chasing Blackburn Rovers last weekend.
Danny Rohl’s men picked up a massive 3-1 home win against Rovers, a result which had fans revelling in belief of Championship survival.
Speaking after the game, Rohl said: “My team fought until the end, they believe in what we are doing and I am so happy to take the points.”
While the Owls remain rooted to the foot of the Championship, fans felt a resurgence at Hillsborough last weekend and will be looking to continue their winning form.
Out-of-form Stoke City currently sit in 20th, winless in their last five games, drawing two.
However, the Owls are winless in their last three league trips to Stoke City (D1 L2) since a 4-2 win in October 2007.
No side has lost more Championship away games than Sheffield Wednesday this season (D1 L8), losing their last six in succession.
Rohl is hoping his side can carry last week’s momentum into Saturday’s clash to help break this streak.
He said: “I try to show my players every day that we have to believe and that I’m convinced in my players.
“After the defeat in Birmingham, now we took four points and I think this a huge step forward.”
The Owls’ face-off against the Potters kicks off at 3pm. Listeners can follow the action on BBC Radio Sheffield, with build-up from the station’s Football Heaven show from 2pm.
