CLINTON Morrison is warning the Owls that they face a Brentford backlash at Griffin Park on Saturday.

The Owls striker who is on loan with the Bees says that the London club are in the mood for a last-ditch attempt to reach the Play-offs.

They seem to have only a slim chance after losing to sixth-placed Stevenage last Saturday and falling five points behind the top six.

But Morrison has seen at close hand a determination in the squad: “Brentford have an outside chance (of the Play-offs),” said the 32-year-old who is ineligible for the game.

“You can see they are up for it, from the way training has gone, and if the Brentford lads can affect who goes up they will do.

“It will be a tricky game for Sheffield Wednesday, a tough one.

“Obviously with the way Wednesday have been playing, they won’t fear anybody. It’s whoever turns up on the day.

“It’s a big game for Wednesday. It’s going to be a great atmosphere.”

Morrison hopes that the Owls go up automatically and thinks that they will beat Wycombe at home in their final game: “They have a great chance of finishing second, and the players and the fans deserve it. The players are a great bunch; the fans are probably the best I’ve known.

“Sheffield United have a tough game against Stevenage on Saturday: hopefully Stevenage will do Sheffield Wednesday a favour.

“Wednesday are playing well. The team might not play pretty all the time, but at this stage of the season it’s about grinding out results. I think they can take second place though I think they’ve got the hardest run-in. I can’t see the boys not getting a win in their last game.

“They have a lot of good players who are not even getting on the bench. ”

Morrison loved life with the Owls but felt he had to go on loan because he was not getting in the team and he says he has enjoyed his time at Brentford, for whom he has made seven appearances.

But he has kept abreast of developments at Hillsborough: “I’ve kept in touch with the boys; they’re doing well and they deserve it.”

He hopes that the Owls avoid the Play-offs: “They’re difficult; when you finish third everybody expects you to win them but it doesn’t always work out like that.”
