Sheffield Wednesday boss Danny Rohl believes his team are in a great position to secure another year of Championship football this weekend at Sunderland.

The Owls have been fighting against the drop all season, with just two points from ten games on his arrival. Since then, Rohl has transformed Wednesday's fate. From hoping teams around them slip up, to their fate being in their own hands.

The German, who has been touted as a potential managerial appointment for the Black Cats, has impressed since taking over at Hillsborough back in October. Wednesday have won 14 and drawn five of the 34 games Rohl has overseen, an average of 1.38 points-per-game.

The Owls are unbeaten in five-games heading into this weekend's clash at the Stadium of Light. Having won three of those five-games, their destiny is firmly in their own hands. His side need just a point on Wearside to confirm Championship football at Hillsborough next season.  

“I’ve always said that my wish was to go to Sunderland and still have a chance to stay in the league - now we’re in that position, and we have a big chance, a big opportunity," the 35-year-old told the Sheffield Star. 

"It’s not enough, though, to just have a chance - we have to take it. I think the last weeks were very great, we were a bit disappointed after Stoke, but if you look how many points we’ve taken in the last five games it’s outstanding. Now we just need the final point, we can do it,” he added. 

Sunderland, who have nothing to play for heading into the final game of the season, host Wednesday at 12.30 pm on Saturday, May 4.
