Wolves survival could aid Owls

Wolves survival could aid Owls

Wednesday fans may not be too concerned with the ups and downs from the Premier League, but Wolves' survival could be a good thing for the Owls.

Mick McCarthy's men slipped to a 3-2 defeat against Blackburn Rovers at Molineux yesterday but still managed to survive in the top flight thanks to other results going their way.

The news means Wednesday could find it easier to bring defender Danny Batth back to Hillsborough next season.

Batth impressed in the famous blue and white stripes during a loan stint towards the end of the season and Vital understands the youngster is on Gary Megson's list of potential summer recruits to bolster his Owls squad.

If McCarthy's men had dropped to the npower Championship Batth could well have surged up the pecking order at Molineux, with players likely to depart, meaning Wednesday could well have struggled to get their man.

But survival for Wanderers means Batth is still likely to be on the fringes of McCarthy's plans next season, paving the way for Megson to bring the centre-back back to S6 either on loan or a permanent deal.

season long loan or the less likely permanent transfer, yes please whichever it is, great prospect.

It makes sense to try and go for him again because at least we know exactly what we're getting which can't be said for other players which is a bit risky.

I think if we can secure Batth and Jones that we should have ample centre-back cover with Beavers and Johnson. I for one thought that Jones and Batth together were the best pairing I'd seen in the blue and white for quite a while their understanding and ability to cover each other showed the true partnership potential that we've missed. This was with playing together for a minimal number of games, given time to bond I think they could be massive next season. In addition to this we'd have adequate and talented cover. WTID

If we could get Batth on a season long loan,like we did with Mellor,that would be great.He was very impressive in every game he played for us.
