Tony Pulis has said Sheffield Wednesday are ‘miles away’ from where he wants them to be.
The Owls have endured a torrid start to the season and find themselves sitting in 23rd position as we enter the festive period of the campaign.
While a six-point deduction at the start of the season played a bit role in that, their recent form has been far from impressive.
The South Yorkshire club had been on a nine-match winless run until they ended that sorry streak with a victory over Coventry City at the weeekend.
That win was their first since Tony Pulis took charge, and while he was pleased with the result, the Welshman insisted that one win doesn’t change his plans as the January transfer window looms.
The big festive Sheffield Wednesday quiz: Can you get 20/20?
He told Yorkshire Live: “I’m still miles away from what I would want, the team needs, the club and the supporters.
“I have been involved in lots of football matches. I think I know what it takes to build a team and put a team together.
“We have got a lot of work to do.”
A victory is nice, but that won’t change anything for Sheffield Wednesday.
Tony Pulis needs his side to start winning games on a regular basis and if they’re to do that then they’ll certainly need to improve the squad.
It’ll be interesting to see how easy that is to do, but knowing Pulis he’ll certainly be doing all that he can to maintain his impressive record of survival.
