Derby County appear to be the side Wednesday need to hunt down, and the Rams' dismal run of form will give the Owls some hope of pulling off a miraculous escape, which could be sealed when the two sides meet at Pride Park on the final day of the campaign next month.
Speaking after last Saturday's clash against the Robins, Owls assistant Jamie Smith, who was standing in for Darren Moore, claimed: “It’s not just me that’s devastated (with the result), it’s everybody in the dressing room. All the players, all the staff, they all feel the same. It’s a game we thought we could win, and with the chances we created we should’ve won.
“Now we come in tomorrow, and we go again. We need to highlight the good bits of play we had, show them the chances that we did create. It’d be more frustrating and disappointing if we weren’t creating chances, so we just have to stay positive.
“It starts with us, so when we come in tomorrow we need to be positive and bright. We’ll reflect on the game, and show them things we did well and also things we can improve on.”
Wednesday are back in action tonight, when they take on 15th placed Blackburn Rovers in must-win clash at Hillsborough.
