Sturrock To 'Do A Job' On Owls

Sturrock To 'Do A Job' On Owls

Former Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock insists he hopes the Owls stay up this season, but will be going about his usual business tonight as he looks to bag three points for Plymouth Argyle.

Sturrock makes his first return to Hillsborough since his sacking last season, and although the Owls are desperate for all three points in the battle against the drop, Sturrock won't be taking it easy in front of his adoring Hillsborough fans.

The Scot guided Wednesday to promotion from League One during his first season at the Wednesday helm before helping the Owls' to survival in the Championship at the first attempt and getting the sack after a slow start to the following season.

His success at S6, and more so his shock departure after only agreeing a new deal at S6 weeks before his sacking, saw him become the most successful Owls' boss in recent times, and earn him a fine reputation among the Owls faithful.

And he told the Sheffield Star: 'I'm glad to see that Wednesday have been picking up points, I had a good relationship with the fans and most of the players that I had are still there.'

'I have to do my job for Plymouth, but I hope that Wednesday stay up.

'I don't hold any grudges even though I feel I did a good enough job. I left the club in better condition than when I took over.

'There are a lot of nice people there. I really enjoyed my time there and there's no malice from me. But I will try to do a professional job for my club and get three points.'

Sturrock will bring his Plymouth squad to Hillsborough in search of three points which will keep the Pilgrims' slim play-off hopes alive, along with fellow former Owls Steve Maclean and Yoann Folly.

All three are set to have a welcome return to Sheffield, although they could have a big impact on Wednesday's relegation worries this season, not that it will be of any concern to the trio on the night.

Sturrock added: 'Last Saturday was a huge blow. But we're not finished yet. Until we're dead and buried, we're going to give it a go.'

I wudnt say we cud afford to lose. A win today and then beat Blackpool saturday and you would think we COULD be just about safe. Im not saying we will. i know everyone is looking at Leicester but theres still Cov, Blackpool, Soton. win tonight and win at blackpool puts them 4 points behind us with 2 games to go. plus leicester play barnsley on saturday so they cud do us a real favour. come on you reds. 3-1 to us tonight. Cum on wednesday.
