Beevers eyeing Tykes scalp

Published Add your comment

Sheffield Wednesday defender Mark Beevers is backing his team-mates to bounce back quickly from Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Doncaster on Saturday.

The Owls were sunk by a Paul Heffernan header at the Keepmoat Stadium, but they have a chance to make amends when they host Barnsley at Hillsborough on Tuesday - their third consecutive South Yorkshire derby.

Beevers told the Star: "It's another big game for us, and a big game for me, with me coming from Barnsley. Hopefully we'll get three points."

The 19-year-old centre-half, who has been the lynch-pin of Wednesday's improving defence this term, is hoping the Owls will be able to rely on their impressive home form at Hillsborough, where they have been beaten just twice in 15 league games.

"We have done well at home this season and if we can show that again, there's no reason why we can't get a good result. We showed at Bramall Lane that we can play to a really good standard."

He added: "Barnsley are not a bad team and we're going to have to be on top of our game, in another local derby."
