Sheffield Wednesday striker Josh Windass insists the club are confident about turning around their poor start to the season.

Sheffield Wednesday have lost their opening two games of the 2023/24 Championship seaosn; against Southampton and then at Hull City last time out.

That defeat at Hull was a poor one. it highlighted a lot of issues with this Wednesday side, who endured a turbulent summer off the pitch.

But new boss Xisco Munoz continues to get new signings over the line with the club’s most recent capture of Djeidi Gassama being their 10th of the summer, and perhaps their most impressive.

And speaking to the club ahead of this weekend’s home game v Preston North End in the Championship, last season’s Wembley hero Windass has admitted that the club are in a tough spell, but insists that things will improve.

He said:

“I pride myself on being a key player for the team and I want goals and assists. If you could stay on that Wembley high for three years that would be lovely, but that’s not reality. Situations change, we’re in a little rocky patch but we’re only two games in and in-house we’re not worried, we are confident of getting results.”

Time to step up…

Windass is one of the more senior players at the club. He’s also probably classed as one of the club’s better players, but now is the time to step up.

Wednesday are right up against it this season and Munoz will be counting on players like Windass to provide the quality this season.

The striker is yet to get off the mark, though. He’s certainly got the quality and he’s showed that in the Championship in previous seasons, but right now it’s a tough time for the club.

But his above comments suggest that he and his teammates remain confident ahead of the rest of the season, so it’ll be interesting to see how it eventually pans out for the Owls.
