Jack Hunt insists Sheffield Wednesday want to show what they are about this weekend when they face Newcastle United, reports the club’s official Twitter account.
Wednesday welcome the Sky Bet Championship leaders to Hillsborough this weekend, where Carlos Carvalhal’s side will face a huge test of their promotion credentials.
Both clubs are looking to secure promotion to the Premier League, despite 18-points separating Wednesday and Newcastle.
Carvalhal’s side are currently sixth and looking to secure their place in the Play-Offs, while Newcastle are battling with Brighton and Hove Albion for the Championship title.
Speaking to the media ahead of the clash, Hunt insisted he and his teammates were looking to impress this weekend, he said: “It will be a tough test but one we look forward to. We want to show everyone what we are about.”
Wednesday picked up a vital three-points on Tuesday evening, with a 2-0 victory over Rotherham United, which moved Carvalhal’s side back into the Play-Off zone ahead of Fulham, who suffered a disappointing 4-2 defeat to Derby County.
With just six fixtures of the regular season remaining, Wednesday, Fulham and Leeds United seem set to battle for two Play-Off places, as just five-points separate the three clubs.
Wednesday fans… Do you think your side can surprise Newcastle this weekend? Let us know in the comments!
