Former Sheffield Wednesday star Mark Crossley insists that Sheffield Wednesday have to aim for automatic promotion this season.
The club dropped into League One after a dismal season in the Championship after finishing rock-bottom of the table.
Of course, Darren Moore’s side were deducted points at the beginning of the campaign and they were subsequently fighting against the odds to stay in the division.
Since their relegation to League One, they have gone unbeaten, drawing 0-0 with Charlton Athletic and beating both Doncaster Rovers and Fleetwood Town.
Only two clubs have taken maximum points so far in the season – Portsmouth and Burton Albion – and Crossley believes that the squad has the talent to finish in the automatic promotion slots, and believes that will be the aim for the season.
Indeed, he thinks that the club need to bounce back from such a terrible season last term.
Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Crossley said: “They’ve got to be thinking that they’re going to get automatic promotion after an absolute nightmare season last season where they had points deducted, never got going, never even put up a show to stay in the Championship.”
