Brunt's Owls Comparison

Brunt's Owls Comparison

In-form Wednesday winger Chris Brunt has compared the Owls form this season to that of his native Northern Ireland.

Wednesday have had a successful campaign this term, building on survival in their first season back in the Championship last season to claim what looks likely to be a respectable mid-table finish under boss Brian Laws.

And Brunt thinks that Wednesday have proved a lot of people wrong this term - similar to that of Northern Ireland who find themselves topping their Euro 2008 qualifying group thanks to victories over giants such as Spain and Sweden.

'After last season, people didn't expect a lot of us; we've shown at places like Palace what we can do,' the 22-year-old told the Sheffield Star.

'We dominated 90 per cent of the game. It's been similar with Northern Ireland; nobody expected anything of us when we played teams like Spain and Sweden, but we proved them wrong.'

And the winger, who has attracted the interest of a host of Premiership clubs including West Ham and Manchester City, insists the Owls can go through until the end of the season unbeaten - and maybe even sneak in a play-off spot.

'It would be nice to keep this run going to the end of the season,' he added.

'We have some tough games coming up. But there is no reason why we can't go through the rest of the season unbeaten.

'It's still mathematically possible for us to do it (reach the play-offs); we'd have to win all our games while other teams lost some of theirs. But just to finish in the club's highest position for seven years would be a great achievement for the boys and the staff.'
