Sheffield Wednesday player speaks out amid promotion race

Keiren Westwood has called on his Sheffield Wednesday teammates to continue their current form, to give themselves a “chance of promotion” come the end of the season, reports the Sheffield Telegraph.

The Owls beat Nottingham Forest 2-1 on Saturday afternoon, with goalkeeper Westwood saving a Ross McCormack penalty during the first-half.

Victory saw Carlos Carvalhal’s side strengthen their hold on a Play-Off place, moving seven points clear of seventh placed Norwich City, who dropped points at struggling Burton Albion.

Westwood called on the club to continue their rampant form: “We want to give ourselves a chance of promotion. It is what we are trying to do and at the moment it is working for us.

“We don’t want to get ahead of ourselves. We have won four games in a row but we have to keep going.”

With 14 games of the Sky Bet Championship season to play, Wednesday look set to make the top-six, and moved to within eight-points of the automatic promotion places.

Westwood had some sound advice for his teammates, continuing: “There are plenty of games to go so we need to stay grounded and keep grinding out those wins.”

Carvalhal’s side face Brentford at Hillsborough on Tuesday evening, before heading to Elland Road on Saturday, for a Yorkshire Derby with promotion chasing Leeds United.
