Boss: "Sheffield Wednesday Are The Real Madrid Of League One"

9 December 2021

Artell gears up to the challenge of meeting arguably the biggest club in League One this weekend.

David Artell has described Saturday’s opponents, Sheffield Wednesday ‘as the Real Madrid of League One’.

The Alex says that his players are looking forward to meeting another of the division’s big guns and that we will give it a right go against Darren Moore’s side this weekend.

Ahead of our first meeting with the Owls since April 2006, Artell told us: “Sheffield Wednesday are the Real Madrid of League One. I don’t know what their budget is but I know that Sheffield Wednesday are a massive club.

“There are some big clubs in this division and then there is Sheffield Wednesday.

“I know Darren Moore is a great guy and he will be looking to take this huge club back up.

“We cannot allow ourselves to be overawed by the occasion. It is 11 men against 11 men and we have to give it a right go in front of our fans and see where we get to.

“They will be bringing over 2,000 fans and that will be great but I must say our fans have been magnificent for us all year and I mean all year. They have been terrific for us both at home and away and they understand that we need them, even more so when one of the big guns rolls into town.

“I want as many of our fans to come along, get behind the team and make sure that ‘we go right here we go’, let’s give it all we have got and see what happens.”
