Sheffield Wednesday's Miguel Llera targets Bolton Wanderers
SHEFFIELD Wednesday defender Miguel Llera believes Saturday’s trip to the Reebok is a crucial Championship six-pointer.
Following Wanderers’ 2-1 win at Birmingham, Wednesday went into the international break as the last team in the division without a win.
But Llera, who helped the Hillsborough men win 1-0 at Wanderers last season, believes Wednesday are about to follow Dougie Freedman’s side and turn their own corner.
And while he expects a tough test, the Spaniard sees it as a good chance for the Owls to end their own dismal start against rivals at the wrong end of the table.
Llera, whose team also face struggling Barnsley after their Reebok trip, told the Owls club website: “We are looking forward to the next couple of games because they are against two teams who are close to us in the table, meaning there is a lot riding on them. It is a huge chance for us to get points on the board and lift ourselves higher in the league.
“It’s never easy playing away from home and it will be a tough game against Bolton but it’s one we are looking forward to.
“We have to go about our business in the right way, focus hard this week, get it right in training and bring it to Bolton where we want to take three points.
“The players are excited for this next game because it is very important for us.”
