OWLS HAVE THE WIT TO WOO TOP SIX

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

WELL done Sh­effield Wed­nes­day. The Owls have made a good start for a change and were desperately un­lucky to see their un­beaten run end at the hands of Not­ting­ham For­est last week­end.

It just goes to show how far they’ve come un­der Stu­art Gray that they can count them­selves un­for­tu­nate to have lost to one of the best teams in the di­vi­sion.

The play­ers are re­ally en­joy­ing work­ing un­der Gray and, talk­ing to them, there’s a gen­uine belief that this sea­son won’t be a rel­e­ga­tion scrap.

I’ve also been re­ally im­pressed by Liam Palmer, a young lad who’s pro­gressed through the academy. He’s got loads of tal­ent and is ca­pa­ble of play­ing right-back, on the wing and cen­tral mid­field.

But the most im­pres­sive thing is his at­ti­tude – it’s bang on and I think he’ll be a reg­u­lar in a Wed­nes­day shirt for years to come.

I’m yet to be con­vinced they have enough goals in the fi­nal third. They don’t look to have as many goals as a Wat­ford or a For­est.

But I hope I’m proved wrong and they are up there with the league’s top scor­ers.

That would cer­tainly make the top six prospect more of a pos­si­bil­ity – and that’s some­thing long over­due.
