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

Attack! Attack! Attack!

Owls boss Paul Sturrock is set to send his side out with a 'gung ho' mentality in this evening's clash with Stoke City - are the Owls fans set to see a Hillsborough goal spree?.

Wednesday are the lowest scorers in the Championship with just three goals from six games - and the Owls boss is set to go for broke as he aims to bag the Owls' first home victory of the season in tomorrow night's clash with Tony Pulis' men.

Sturrock told the official SWFC site: 'I am going to change it because we need to win football games. We have to be as positive as we can with the players we have available. They'll be instructed to go out with an attacking mindset.'

And Sturrock hopes to kick-start a Hillsborough revival as he looks to climb the Championship table and take points from S6.

'I've looked at my home record and that of the other recent managers here and we've had a serious problem for quite a long time. That apprehension seems to have seeped into the phsyche of the fan aswell.'

Sturrock will welcome Marcus Tudgay back to fitness at Hillsborough for the first time this season after coming through the Southend match at the weekend. Deon Burton will also continue his recovery to full fitness and Wade Small hopes to make the bench.

But Sturrock insisted he won't risk the fitness of Tudgay after the former Derby man worked tirelessly in Saturday's Roots Hall encouter which saw Wednesday draw another blank - but keep their unbeaten away record in tact.

He continued: 'We'll have to freshen things up. Marcus' legs were hanging off on Sunday. I'm sure he'll want to play but we have to take a considered opinion on it - this league is 40-odd games, not five. We have to make sure we can use the squad the best way we can over seven days.'

Sounds like there's going to be a treat for the 20,000 going today. Attacking football at Hillsborough from the boys in blue and white! Who would have thought it?
