Tom Lees delivers verdict on Sheffield Wednesday’s play-off chances



Sheffield Wednesday defender Tom Lees says the team will give it their all in the race to finish in the Championship play-offs.

The Owls are currently 11th in the Championship table, four points outside the top six and face Aston Villa at Hillsborough at the weekend.

Wednesday are unbeaten in their last twelve league matches and are unbeaten since Steve Bruce took charge of the club in February.

Lees acknowledged that size of the task, but says his teammates are prepared to give everything to ensure they finish in the play-offs.

“I’m sure other teams with more points or more favourable fixtures will consider themselves in a stronger position than us, but we are in the race so we are going to give our all,” Lees told the club’s official website.

“I don’t think we are under huge pressure because no one expects us to do it but there is a determination within us to have a real go and see what we can do.

“As has been said we have very tough fixtures, we play all the teams above us hoping to get in the play-offs and the current top two away from home.

“It’s what you’re in football for these challenges so we will give it a good go from now until the end of the season.”

With seven games remaining, the Owls are still in with a chance of snatching the final play-off spot, but with so many teams involved in the hunt for a top-six finish, it will be tough for them.

Interestingly, six out of their final seven opponents are currently above them in the table, so they have a real chance of taking points off the teams around them in the play-off chase.

The Verdict:

Sheffield Wednesday have been brilliant since Steve Bruce took charge at Hillsborough and are building some serious momentum under their new boss.

The Owls are unbeaten in their last 12 Championship matches and appear to have found their form at exactly the right time.

They have still good some very tough fixtures on paper so it will be difficult, but if they can keep this run going they stand a good chance of sneaking into the top six.
