Sheffield Wednesday must find a way of consistently delivering performances of the ilk which saw them demolish Leeds United a fortnight ago.
That is the verdict of Wednesday wide man Adam Reach who believes they will have no trouble beating Bolton Wanderers today if they come close to the level of the display in the 3-0 win before the international break.
“We set a benchmark for ourselves as players, individually and collectively, against Leeds and it’s important now to maintain that level and pick up serious points,” he told The Star.
“That is always the plan.
“If on Saturday we play anywhere near the level we did against Leeds, then we’ll win the game.
“We were confident of beating anyone before the Leeds game, before the [Steel City] derby and after the derby.
“It doesn’t matter, because when we look around the dressing room we feel we have got one of, if not the, strongest teams and squad.
“We will always go into every game confident of winning.”
Today’s hosts, Bolton, have already beaten Wednesday at the Macron Stadium this season, triumphing 3-2 in the Carabao Cup.
That result accounts for one of only two wins the Trotters have managed all term.
Reach says the desire for retribution will provide an additional incentive, if needed, this afternoon.
He said: “Obviously they beat us in the cup, which was disappointing, and that’s an extra motivation, if we need it, to come away with the three points.”
