Purse Looks To Rectify Poor Form

Purse Looks To Rectify Poor Form

Wednesday's under-fire captain Darren Purse has admitted he's disappointed with his recent form, but is determined to put that right in the coming weeks.

The former Cardiff City man has taken much of the blame of the Owls recent dip in form, and could be one of a number of players dropped for this weekend's visit of Coventry City after boss Brian Laws threatened to make changes to his squad.

Purse isn't alone in his criticism, with Lewis Buxon amongst the names who Wednesdayites have pointed the finger at in recent poor performances.

But the experienced defender insists that the next time he pulls on the famous blue and white stripes, he'll be striving to go some way to showing Owls fans what he's really about.

Talking about his failure to live up to early season expectations, Purse told PA Sport: 'I'm big enough to say that and the only way to rectify it is hard work - as I have always done throughout my career - and hopefully there will be a chance for me to put it right against Coventry.

'If not, then I will continue to work hard until the next chance comes, hopefully sooner rather than later. Nobody is 'undroppable', nobody is bigger than the side and nobody is bigger than the football club, it's as simple as that.'

Laws has hinted that one of Richard Hinds or Mark Beevers could come in for Purse against the Sky Blues this weekend.

Give Purse a chance, in the reserves. If BL persists with his captain then the first mistake Purse makes, the crowd will be on his back and it will snowball from there. I fear that Purse will have to work hard at winning over the fans and a little taste of humble pie in the reserves won't go amiss. If he does well then the opportunity of a couple of cameo appearances coming off the bench may help win us back. This is the only road I see for DP at Wednesday, he isn't in the best three centre backs we have and should be played accordingly.
