In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, former Hull City shooter Dean Windass revealed what his son, Josh Windass, told him about the current Sheffield Wednesday squad as they fight to avoid relegation this season.
The Owls were slapped with a 12-point deduction in the summer (since it was down to just six points) following the sale of Hillsborough Stadium to owner Dejphon Chansiri.
Where will Sheffield Wednesday end this season?
Relegated to L1
And after a bad start to the campaign, the Thai businessman pulled the trigger on Garry Monk after more than a year in charge.
Tony Pulis, the former head of Stoke City and West Brom, soon replaced him, but the Yorkshire men have managed to win just one game at the age of 62 since he was named last month.
Windass’ son Josh is currently their top scorer with three goals in 15 starts, according to Who scored, and has claimed that they have a good enough team to overcome the decline this period …
Dean revealed to FFC:
Josh thinks so. Josh says they have a good team.
“They shouldn’t be down there. The 12-point deduction killed them at the start of the season. [The] Confidence is pretty low when it is, but it was.
“Josh said they are a good team, you know when they are in their day.”
On Wednesday he will look to build on his 1-0 win over Coventry when they head to Blackburn Rovers on Boxing Day, a team that has won just once in its last five league outings.
Saturday’s victory knocked the Owls out of the bottom of the Championship table on goal difference, though it still leaves them four points from safety after 20 games with both teams facing them with an additional game to play.
Without the deduction, Pulis’ men would be ranked 20th: confident, but by no means comfortable.
Only time will tell if Windass’s words will ring true.
