Palmer Hopes To Sink Owls

Former Sheffield Wednesday star Carlton Palmer believes the Hillsborough side will be relegated on Saturday - and he will not shed a tear.

Despite having six highly successful seasons at the Yorkshire club, Palmer reveals he will have no mixed feelings if his current club Coventry consign Wednesday to the drop.

He said:

"This is not about one game, it is about the way they have played for the whole season.

"There are 38 matches and obviously over the course of those they have not played well enough to stay up. By and large in football you get what you deserve.

"I had some great times there and it is sad for a big club to be relegated, but that is what is going to happen - they have no chance of staying up."

And the 34-year-old is confident that it will be his new club that send Peter Shreeves' side into Division One at Highfield Road this weekend.

He said:

"Wednesday have three games left and if they were to win them all then they would stay up, but that is just not going to happen.

"For a start they won't beat us on Saturday and they also have to play Arsenal who are in tremendous form so that won't happen either."

Despite his optimism about Saturday's match the battling midfielder is quick to point out that City have not achieved enough this season.

He said:

"We haven't won anything so there is not really much to get too excited about.

"We were aiming to finish in the top ten and we haven't achieved that so the season has to go down as a bit of a disappointment.

"We have got good players here and we should be higher up the league than we are so in that respect it has not been a memorable campaign."
