Sheffield Wednesday’s Steven Fletcher has told the Sheffield Star that there is no pressure on the club as they push for a place in the Sky Bet Championship play-offs.
The Owls had been mediocre all season and looked more likely to get relegated than promoted earlier on in the season. However, their season has changed ever since they sacked Jos Luhukay and replaced him with Steve Bruce. They have gone on a long unbeaten run since Bruce was appointed as the head coach and now they are just a few points off the play-offs.
This has got fans excited as they now believe they could sneak into the top six which would give them a shot at being promoted. And Fletcher, who has been on top form since Bruce came in, says they are enjoying chasing the play-off pack as they don’t have the same sort of pressure on them as they do.
He said: “There is no pressure when you are chasing,”
“Being up there and trying to stay up there is a different story. When you are chasing the pack there is less pressure on you and you can just get on with it.”
“The crowd, they have come out and supported us, and hopefully they can keep that going for the rest of the season.”
He added: “We have got a lot of tough games coming up but we will just keep our heads down, keep working hard and see were we finish up. If we are up there, happy days, I don’t think anyone expected us to be anywhere near where we are, especially at Christmas.”
