Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Massimo Luongo has called for his teammates to remain grounded, despite the fact that their strong form has seen them rise up to 8th in the Championship table.
Since the arrival of Garry Monk, Sheffield Wednesday have hit a strong run of form. The club have won three games of their last five leaving them in 8th place in the Championship table, within touching distance of the Championship play-offs.
However, despite the obvious upbeat attitude at Hillsborough, midfielder Massimo Luongo has called for everyone to remain grounded. Speaking to the Sheffield Star, Luongo has said that despite their strong form that they can’t take anything for granted given the competitive nature of the Championship. He said:
“It has been a quality start. We are only three points off the top but there is a long way to go. It is difficult to stay in the top half of the table. There will be teams between now and Christmas that will lose where they are going and fall off the top of the table.
“I think it is important to take one game at a time and just worry about getting three points every week.
“We have pulled out results when we have not played well but got the three points. It is very rare to be a in a team that does that and when we do play well, like we did against Middlesbrough, we scored four goals. I think there is a lot to build on and we are in a good place. It is up to us whether we go up or down.”
