Irvine excited by Owls' challenge
Published : 15 Jan 2010 14:32:00
Irvine, installed as Brian Laws' successor less than two weeks after being sacked by Preston, has this week been preparing the Owls' squad for his first game in charge on Saturday at local rivals Barnsley. Irvine said: "Right at this moment, without any other players going out, we don't have the funds to bring anybody else in. "This squad is a good squad and I'm confident that we can get the right results, as I say, with a lot of hard work. "I'm really looking forward to Saturday. It will be a special occasion made bigger by the fact that it's a derby match. "Barnsley are a good side, I have seen them a few times this season. Mark Robins has done a very good job there and it will be a very tough game."
