Purse wants more clean sheets

Sheffield Wednesday captain Darren Purse is keen for the players to step up their defensive effort.

The Owls have kept just one clean sheet in the Championship this season and Purse is keen for a strong defensive display for the rest of the campaign.

"That's what I am paid for, to keep clean sheets, and if I can keep as many as I can then it will be great for me and Sheffield Wednesday.

"I'd rather do that than score goals," Purse told BBC Radio Sheffield.
