Skuse insists the mood in the camp is still positive as Town look to get back to winning ways at Portman Road tonight

  • Skuse ready for Owls
  • Town spirit still sky high
  • Time to put right Rotherham loss

Cole Skuse has quashed claims that the spirit at Town has been knocked following defeat to Rotherham at the weekend.

The midfielder, speaking ahead of tonight’s clash with Stuart Gray’s Sheffield Wednesday at Portman Road (kick-off 7.45pm), has insisted that the mood is still positive and that the boys are looking forward to getting back out there and trying to put right that defeat to the Millers.

“The lads were obviously disappointed after losing to Rotherham but we’re not getting down, we’re still buoyant in the dressing-room,” the former Bristol City man told the Club website.

“Chambo doesn’t let anyone get down anyway! He’s straight onto you if you are and picking you back up and you need characters like that.

“There’s a great spirit here though and a couple of bad results won’t affect that. The manager and TC have put on some good sessions and we are all prepared for tonight’s game against Sheffield Wednesday.

“They will be coming here full of confidence but we are also confident that we can get the right result this evening.

“We enjoy playing at Portman Road, especially under the lights, and hopefully we can put on a show for the fans and put right that defeat at the weekend.”

Team news

Town are waiting on the fitness of striker David McGoldrick, who picked up a thigh injury against Rotherham at the weekend. Freddie Sears and Noel Hunt are on standby to replace the forward if need be, although Luke Hyam again misses out through injury. Dean Gerken is back in training and could be set for a place on the bench for the Blues.

The Owls will hand a late fitness test to Jose Semedo ahead of tonight’s clash, after missing training this week with a recurrence of an infected toe. Stuart Gray could hand a debut to new signing Felipe Melo, although Glenn Loovens and Chris Maguire are ruled out through suspension.
