‘He’s flying’ – Sheffield Wednesday given warning over threat of Blackburn Rovers star…

Sheffield Wednesday has little time to savor their hard-fought draw against Leicester City, as they face another challenging encounter against Blackburn Rovers this weekend.

The Owls, buoyed by their commendable performance against the league leaders, now confront an in-form opponent led by the Championship’s top scorer, Sammie Szmodics.

Blackburn Rovers, currently on an upward trajectory, head to Hillsborough with the aim of dampening Sheffield Wednesday’s recent resurgence.

Szmodics, who notched two more goals against Birmingham City, brings his season tally to an impressive 13, surpassing Wednesday’s collective nine goals.

With six goals in his last four games and a total of 15 goal involvements in 18 matches, Szmodics poses a significant threat to the Owls’ defense.

Rovers’ manager, Jon Dahl Tomasson, praised Szmodics for his stellar performance, highlighting his ability to play a quick, fluent game with a keen understanding of space.

Tomasson expressed satisfaction with Szmodics’s goal-scoring form and emphasized his work ethic both on and off the ball.

Despite the formidable challenge posed by Blackburn Rovers and their star player, Sheffield Wednesday’s coach, Danny Rohl, remains optimistic about his team’s chances.

Reflecting on the draw against Leicester, Rohl commended his players for holding their own against a top-tier team, emphasizing the respect earned by their performance against a formidable opponent.

As Sheffield Wednesday prepares for another tough fixture, they face the dual challenge of containing Szmodics’s prolific goal-scoring abilities and building on the positive momentum gained from their recent draw in the league.
