Don't forget your Sheffield Wednesday programme this weekend

13 October 2017

Don't forget to pick up your copy of The Wanderer ahead of this weekend's Sky Bet Championship clash against Sheffield Wednesday at Macron Stadium.

Priced at £3 for 84 pages of exclusive content, this Saturday's edition features an in-depth interview with defender Mark Beevers and a pull-out poster of our No.5.

A product of Sheffield Wednesday's youth set-up, the 27-year-old arrived at Macron Stadium last summer and figured prominently as the Whites secured promotion back to the second tier of English football at the first attempt.

And ahead of the Whites' Sky Bet Championship clash with his former employers this weekend, Beevers sat down for an exclusive chat with the club's matchday programme to reflect upon his career to date, his time with our latest visitors and his aims to turn the Trotters' fortunes around this term.

"We’re just wholly determined to get ourselves off the foot of the table and out of the bottom three," said the centre-half. "I think before the season started, people would have pinpointed safety as a benchmark given that we’re newly promoted, but we don’t like to put those targets in place.

"I would always say take each game as it comes, but now after eleven games, being realistic, we cannot focus on anything other than getting ourselves out of the relegation zone.

"At this early stage, you can’t look too far ahead, but it all boils down to getting that first win. We might sound like a stuck record, but it really is crucial.

"The manager and his team are working so hard with us behind the scenes and everybody is singing from the same hymn sheet – there’s no doubt about it.

"We know that what they’re implementing into us will get us results and it’s just about getting that rub of the green to make all the difference."

The Owls

Alongside Beevers' interview, we've also got an extensive look at our visitors from Hillsborough.

With player profiles on their key men and a full roll call for Carlos Carvalhal's men, there's also 'We've Met Before', 'One Of Each' and 'The Other Side Of The Fence' amongst various other features to ensure that you're clued up about our Yorkshire counterparts.

Eidur Gudjohsen

Having recently retired from the game, former Whites forward Eidur Gudjohnsen returned "home" for the Trotters' game against Brentford on September 23.

And ahead of the game, he sat down with the club's media team to reflect on his illustrious career, with the Icelander saying, "I have travelled a bit in my career, but as I have said before, there are only three clubs in my career that are more than just a football club to me and they are Bolton Wanderers, Chelsea and Barcelona.

"If I had to pick one or two though, it would always be Bolton or Chelsea. Bolton Wanderers played a huge part in my career and it is always great to come back here.

"Even as a little boy growing up in Iceland, I set my mind on achieving great things and although there have been a couple of ups and downs throughout the years, coming back to Bolton is one place where I only have fond memories."

To read Eidur's full interview, pick up a copy of The Wanderer this weekend.

All this, plus much more including the usual columns from the manager, captain and chairman plus updates from our Under-18s and Under-23s are waiting for you inside this weekend's edition.

Sellers will be situated both inside and outside Macron Stadium ahead of the game.
