Ross : No Regrets

Ross : No Regrets

Maurice Ross had a less than auspiscious stay at Hillsborough.

After breaking into the Scottish national side, much was expected of Ross on his arrival, but The Owls, for whatever reason, never saw anything close to approaching his best football and with only 2 apprearances going into October, he made the move to Molineux.

Many questioned the signing of a player thought not good enough for Wednesday, but after biding his time, Ross took his opportunity to impress and is now seriously challenging Wales international Rob Edwards for a starting spot every game.

Under the circumstances, some might be inclined to put a little extra venom in their tackles, but Maurice doesnt bear Wednesday any grudges fo his abortive stay. As he explained to the Birmingham Post

'I'd be wanting to win whoever we were playing against but it's fair to say I'm looking forward to this one,' he said.

'I don't think I need to prove anything though - I've worked hard and got a deal at Wolves and have been playing in the Wolves team so I think that speaks volumes.'

'I don't hold grudges, I respect Paul Sturrock and John Blackley for what they are trying to do at Sheffield but it just didn't work out for me and I'm happy to be at Wolves now with a team going for promotion.'

Wolves may be carrying momentum going into the final straight of the promotion race, but it the current campaign still falls some way short of the expected season. Something not lost on Ross.

'With the players we have here we really should be pushing for promotion but it's not quite worked out that way so far,' he said.

'Now we're in a situation where we're just outside the top six but we've still got to go to Preston so there's still a chance to take things by the scruff of the neck.

'It's a strange one tomorrow because Wednesday did us a favour last week by beating Preston but now we need to turn them over if we are going to make a late push into the play-offs.'


The fortunes of the two sides couldnt be more different with Wolves looking to climb out of The Championship, and Wednesday fighting to stay in it, which gives both sides their own motivation ahead of the weekends encounter.

And that is sure to make for an interesting clash when the two sides kick off on Saturday, something that Maurice feels could be just the thing Wolves need to spur them on to victory.

'They're in a different predicament to us, they are fighting for their lives which could give them a siege mentality.: said Ross

'They'll be battling for every ball but that might suit us because if we get a few kicks it will rile us up and we're a better team when we're up against it a wee bit.'

'I think the fact they need the points as badly as us will make for a good game and they have certainly got potential matchwinners in their squad like Chris Brunt, who's capable of scoring from anywhere.


'But in our home games I think it's more about what we do than the opposition and we need to get on the front foot like we did in the second half against Reading.'
