Sheffield Wednesday: Consistency the key for Owls top-flight tilt

Consistency is the key to promotion out of the Championship, according to new Owls goalkeeper Lewis Price.

The Wales international is talking from personal experience, having been a member of the Crystal Palace side who went up two years ago via the play-offs.

If Wednesday are to compete in the upper echelons of the division, Price claims they must find a way of producing results week in, week out.

“It’s about consistency,” he told The Star. “I got promoted out of the division with Crystal Palace and we kept a lot of clean sheets. We consistently won games. We ground out results. You’ve got to consistently pick up points to be in amongst it.”

Price, released by Palace over the summer, enjoyed loan spells at Cambridge, MK Dons, Luton and Brentford, and played five times for Mansfield on loan last year.

Having penned a one-year deal at Wednesday earlier this month, the 30-year-old is targeting a top-six push.

“I’m very confident we can challenge,” said Price, who began his career at Ipswich Town. “I know the manager wants to bring in one or two more signings. But the squad on the whole looks very strong and hopefully we will be up there fighting with the top teams.

“We are aiming for the play-offs so we will see what happens.”
