'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Iron Give Owls Football Focus

Wednesday can turn their attentions away from this week's winding-up petition from the HMRC to focus fully on football with a trip to face Scunthorpe in a friendly.

Alan Irvine and his his troops have no doubt kept their focus on the football this week, but the trip to Glanford Park gives Wednesdayites the chance to do the same.

And the Owls will be looking for a more positive result that the 1-1 stalemate against Darlington and 2-1 defeat at Grimsby Town this time last week.

The pre-season is undoubtedly all about raising fitness levels, getting new players to gel and working on tactics for the new season, but a positive result here and there wouldn't go amiss.

Championship side Scunthorpe provide Wednesday with their toughest test yet in pre-season and Irvine is set to field a strong side for the clash.

Lee Grant, Giles Coke are both expected to miss out as they recover from injuries.

And Clinton Morrison may still have to wait a little longer to get his debut in the famous blue and white stripes, with the midweek clash at Barnsley the likely point for his introduction.

But Tommy Spurr returned to training at Middlewood Road this week and will be available for selection, along with the rest of the squad.
