Attacker explains why it's been 'impossible' for Wednesday to play attractive football

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

Sheffield Wednesday striker Caolan Lavery has bemoaned the state of the Hillsborough pitch.

Sheffield Wednesday attacker Caolan Lavery has told the Sheffield Star that it has been 'impossible' for the side to play an expansive style at home this season.

The Hillsborough pitch has not been conducive to playing attractive football, and Lavery believes it has held the team back.

The 22-year-old says that Wednesday haven't been able to play in their desired style at home and is looking forward to next season, when the playing surface is set to undergo a £1 million renovation.

"It has been nearly impossible for us to get the ball down so a new surface will help us in the long run pass the ball the way we like to," he said. "It has been nearly impossible for us to get the ball down so a new surface will help us in the long run pass the ball the way we like to.

“You get bobbles when you least expect it so a new pitch will hopefully make a big difference with the way Stuart likes and wants us to play."

Wednesday's pitch has been one of the major reasons behind the Owls' struggles in front of goal this season.

The Yorkshire outfit have managed to score just 37 times in their 41 matches to date this campaign and this will be an obvious area that they need to improve next term.

By installing a new pitch at their home ground, they should have a good chance of doing so and the entertainment factor at Hillsborough looks set to increase.

Wednesday are likely to bring in a lot of quality over the summer and the hope will be that the side are able to mount a promotion push in the 2015/16 campaign.
