Adams aware of Wednesday’s quality

Derek Adams is fully aware of Sheffield Wednesday’s quality ahead of Tuesday night’s meeting with the Owls.

Darren Moore’s men will be hoping for a different outcome compared to last season’s meeting at the Mazuma between the two sides, which saw Dennis Adeniran’s 63rd minute own-goal prove the difference on the day.

Despite this, the gaffer is expecting a tough test for the Shrimps given the talent that lies within the Wednesday squad.

“They’ve got quality throughout the team,” Adams said.

“We all know them very well because they’ve played in the Championship, some of them have played in the Premier League as well.

“They’ve got some real quality players; Barry Bannan is a prime example of that, to have the likes of Gregory, Windass as well in that area, they’ve got a very, very good squad.

“They’ve got international players in their squad and that’s why they’re favourites for promotion.

“They come here, which is always a difficult venue for any team to come to, and as a Club, as a team, we’re looking forward to it.

“It’s what we do on the day, we’ve got to get at them and cause them problems, which we will do.”

Morecambe’s last outing, a 2-2 draw away at Bristol Rovers on 3 September, came before last weekend’s enforced break following the passing of Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

Given the relentless playing schedule, Adams is hoping that his side can benefit from the rest.

He added: “We took a rest, I think it’s important we respected the wishes of the EFL, we did that.

“We came back in to train this morning [Monday] to prepare for the game on Tuesday night, we’re looking forward to it because it’s another tough match for us, playing against one of the top teams in this division.

“It’s been relentless, it’s been a really difficult start from a games point of view, in the month of August, there was nine games.

“We were going to go back-to-back, Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday, that wasn’t going to be easy, we’re away from home on Saturday against Forest Green, so I think having the rest has helped us and can get us ready for tomorrow night’s match.

“The support we’ve had, to have 2,800 Season Tickets holders, is magnificent.

“People turning up on the day and spending their hard-earned cash to come and watch two good teams in Morecambe and Sheffield Wednesday, they’ll probably get an exciting match.”
