Perfect environment created ahead of Steve Bruce’s arrival at Sheffield Wednesday

Perfect environment created ahead of Steve Bruce’s arrival at Sheffield Wednesday

According to The Star, returning Sheffield Wednesday striker Sam Winnall has given a positive assessment of The Owls’ camp currently. 

The 27-year-old said that morale was high in training, after The Owls have gone on a five-match unbeaten streak in the Championship, and there is a belief that the club can earn promotion.

Winnall has played barely any football over the past two seasons, as he has been ravaged by injuries, but his return is yet another positive sign for the club going into the second half of the season.

Winnall has had to sit and watch his team struggle over the first half of the season, which culminated in the sacking of manager Jos Luhukay. With Steve Bruce incoming in February, the forward will hope he is up to full fitness by then to work his way into the former Aston Villa boss’s plans.


Winnall has made three bench appearances since returning in late December for The Owls, and will hope that he will be part of a Sheffield Wednesday resurgence over the coming months.

With Sheffield Wednesday’s strikers struggling by and large this season, Winnall will see this as an opportunity to become the first choice striker at Hillsborough for the rest of the season, and there is nothing to suggest that he will not.

Owner Dejphon Chansiri has already reiterated his desire to earn promotion this season, and it now looks as though this attitude has spread amongst his players, and it looks as though the perfect environment is being created before Bruce’s arrival in a few weeks.
