Barnes targets Owls response

HARVEY Barnes has urged his team-mates to right the wrongs of October's visit to Hillsborough as Albion welcome Sheffield Wednesday to The Hawthorns.

Late heroics from Harvey rescued a 2-2 draw on a night where he concedes the Baggies "weren't at their best", but the youngster sees Saturday's return fixture as the perfect chance of redemption.

"I've definitely got fond memories of Sheffield Wednesday - but not in terms of the result," Harvey said.

"We weren't at our best when we went there so we know there's more to come.

"We've worked a lot this week in preparation.

"It's been a quick turnaround since Boxing Day but the boys are ready.

"We've put some good results together and have got that momentum at the minute.

"We're looking to take that forward."

A pair of home games over the Christmas period is "beneficial", says Harvey, with Wednesday the latest hurdle in Darren Moore's mission to crack the Sky Bet Championship top two.

He added: "With games coming so quickly less traveling can benefit the team.

"It's good to be at home after a win on Boxing Day - the fans will be right behind us.

"All we can do is keep winning our games.

"The top two have been picking up good results but at some point they'll slip up.

"It's up to us to capitalise when that happens."
