Sheffield Wednesday suffered another disappointing result Saturday as they were held to a 1-1 home draw with South Yorkshire rivals Barnsley.
The result condemned the Owls to a place in the lower half of the Championship table, and it has been a miserable opening three months to the season for last season’s playoff semi finalists.
A home defeat to Sheffield United three weeks ago is also still fresh on the mind of many Owls fans, and the pressure is building by the week on manager Carlos Carvalhal.
Wednesday defender Tom Lees though spoke to the club’s official website following the draw with Barnsley, and he highlighted that the club need to ‘earn the right’ to play, if they are to start picking up wins and picking them up soon.
“Today we put in a better performance and we had chances but we probably should have created more clear cut chances. Then we got punished, but no one has a right to win, we’ve got to earn the right to win games.” Lees said.
Lees remained adamant that the squad ‘believes in the quality’ is possesses, and is looking to correct their form in the Tuesday night home tie with Millwall.
The Owls need to put a run of results together to start climbing the table, and Lees believes it is down to the players in the Wednesday squad to put things right and ease the pressure on manager Carvalhal.
Wednesday fans, what do you think of form of late? Should the manager go? Give us your thoughts!
