Barry Bannan wants Sheffield Wednesday to take momentum into play-offs by beating Wolves

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

The Owls have already secured their play-off spot in the Championship.

Barry Bannan has stressed that it is still important for Sheffield Wednesday to beat Wolves on the final day of the season to ensure that they take some momentum into the play-offs, the Sheffield Star reports.

Carlos Carvalhal's men have already guaranteed themselves sixth place in the Championship, so some may assume that the Owls will be taking their foot off the pedal somewhat against Kenny Jackett's men.

However, the midfielder has insisted that picking up three points is still an important task for the Wednesday squad.

"We want to win the game," he told the Star. "You want confidence to be sky high going into the play-offs."

With either Middlesbrough or Brighton ahead in the play-off semi-final, it is fair to say that that momentum could be vital to the Owls' hopes of getting to Wembley.

Though the team that faces Carvalhal's men will be extremely down given that they missed out on automatic promotion, they have both shown all season that they are two of the strongest teams in the league, so it will be a huge ask for the Owls to get the victory over two legs.

But if they can maintain the winning feeling on the final day, they will have much more belief that an upset is possible.
