Flitcroft: We're Looking Strong

24 October 2013

Reds Manager David Flitcroft met with the press ahead of this Saturday's home clash with Sheffield Wednesday.

Flitcroft and his side are in search of another three points following last weekend's win over Middlesbrough, to make it back-to-back victories.

"They've conceded a lot of goals, that's what the facts tell you," said Flitcroft of Sheffield Wednesday. "They're a strong, physical side. They've brought in two quality players in Matty Fryatt and Stephen McPhail. Dave Jones has been quietly going about his business building a team he believes in.

"He knows exactly what he needs to get them out of trouble."

There are three absentees for the weekend, including Peter Ramage, Luke Steele and Lewin Nyatanga, as Flitcroft continued, "Again we’re looking strong,” said Flitcroft. “We’ve had players come through this week. Tangs (Lewin Nyatanga) has got more training time in.

“We had a game arranged on Monday that got called off for players who haven’t had much game time. It got called off due to the waterlogged pitch so that would have been a good game to play him in.

“We’re trying to arrange two games next week for the likes of him, Daws (Stephen Dawson) and Kelvin (Etuhu) to keep them at match level.

“Everyone’s had a good, positive week and the competition on the training ground’s been excellent."

The Owls are in search of their first win of the season as they arrive at Oakwell for the 12:15pm kick-off on Saturday.
