Kennedy proud to lead the Imps

Mark Kennedy has relished every match since becoming City’s head coach in the summer.

The Irishman is hoping to return to winning ways as the Imps travel to Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend in a game he is looking forward to.

Kennedy said: “I have loved every minute of every game this season. I’m passionate about my job and football in general, but I have always embraced every game in the same way. 

“It will be great to coach at Hillsborough, an iconic stadium against an iconic team, but ultimately it is another game of football which we will make sure we’re prepared for, mentally and physically.” 

City shared the points with the Owls in a 1-1 draw at the LNER Stadium in the reverse fixture, and Kennedy is expecting another “stern test” this time around. 

He added: “Sheffield Wednesday are a big, powerful and technical side who will really challenge your backline. They are where they are on merit and it’s as big of a test as we could have. 

“They’re arguably the best side in the league and were on an incredible unbeaten run recently - so I couldn’t have picked a tougher game. It will be a stern test for sure.”
