Wolves Man Joins Owls On Loan

Wolves Man Joins Owls On Loan

Wednesday have completed the signing of young Wolves defender Danny Batth on an emergency loan deal until the end of the season.

Batth, a product of the Premier League club's Academy, is expected to go straight into Wednesday's squad for the trip to Southampton in npower League One on Saturday.

Owls boss Gary Megson will be looking for the youngster to help stop the wave of goals Wednesday have been conceding in recent weeks and months - something which has seen them slide alarmingly down the table.

Megson has tried a number of options in his defence but is seemingly keen to add more defensive options to his squad.

The centre-back has had previous loan spells at Colchester United and across the city at Sheffield United.

Cud have done with an older head in central defence to get it in order,lets hope this guy can do it and not be quiet and have no confidence.

Seconded. Maybe looking at having him and signing him at the end of the season? Would still want a more experienced centre-back too.

Well it's not necessarily experience we need but just someone vocal who can order people about. This kids has skippered the youth and reserve teams at Wolves and McCarthy rates him for his vocal presence!

I understand the need for the emergency loan I just hope that Bath isn't the only one, I hope by the end of the week there are a few more. If we put him straight in for Saturday it's unfair to think this one man can make the sort of difference we need and have the required effect on his own. It's like sticking a blister plaster on a major laceration. We need a proper defensive leader, someone that can instantly and without reservation lead the line.

If we could why not try 5-3-2 if there are two guys that can make the effort to play 90 minutes running box to box... although I'd prefer if Megson could swing to play 5-5-4. WTID
