'Owls out to wing it' against Watford

'Owls out to wing it' against Watford

Lloyd Doyley and Jon Harley are in for a torrid time at Hillsborough on Saturday - well that`s the war cry from VitalWednesday anyway, who reckon the Owls threat will come down the flanks!

The Owls fans have earmarked Wednesday wingers 'flying Dutchman` Etienne Esajas and Jermaine Johnson as the dangermen to watch in this weekend`s clash and with Wade Small back in contention, the Owls are well equipped with talented widemen.

In an exclusive interview with VitalWatford (ok, Dr Watford emailed them a few questions), VitalWednesday editor Nick Rigg said "Jermaine Johnson and Etienne Esajas [are] not the best defensively but when they`re on form, they`re on form and can scare the living daylights out of defenders with their pace and skill"

Not great news then - especially given first choice left back Matt Sadler is ruled out injured.

Esajas showed signs of some serious pace in a rather flat Yorkshire pudding of a Wednesday display at the Vic last season and VitalWednesday added "Etienne has 'come good` this season after an injury-ravaged time last season…Hopefully if he stays injury free he`ll be a great player for us this season in what has been a 'problem position`…"

But Lloyd Doyley has already man marked the pace and power of Charlton`s Hameur Bouazza and England U19 speedster Victor Moses out of the game already this season, so the former Vitesse Arnham winger won`t have it all his own way.

should be a good game, just as long as it is better than last year, but will setle for a poor game and 3 points, just like last year though!

I won't be at the game, but would settle for the same. But we need to get off to a better start than last week or against Forest. I think Aidy will have the boys fired up for this one. Come on You Golden Boys!

AB has already stated he wants us to quick out of the traps but the Hornets boss is expecting an open game...

Surely it must be Harley with JJOT in midfield....

And wing it they did!!!!! Esajas and Johnson ripped us apart at times. Centre defense was a right ol shambles against pace on the break!!!!
