Speaking to Football League World this month, the ex-Blackpool boss said, “He has got massive expectations hasn’t he… Through the punishment of the financial restrictions and what you should do they broke some rules and so they now find themselves in League One.

“I don’t think they’ll be there long, I really don’t. I think they’ll climb back up.

“It’s a magnificent football club with a wonderful set of supporters. You always get some stick when you go there but I love them, absolutely love them, so good luck to Darren.”

Wednesday face top-of-the-table Wigan Athletic this evening as they look to get back to winning ways and take a big step closer towards the Play-Off places and the summit of the League One table – the game gets underway at 7.45pm at the DW Stadium.
