Sheffield Wednesday are third in the League One table with 40 points from 19 matches and are on a seven match unbeaten run in the league
Next, Darren Moore’s side will welcome League Two outfit Mansfield Town in an FA Cup round two clash at Hillsborough on Saturday.
Mansfield defender Perch stated that the Stags have experience of playing against big sides like Sheffield Wednesday and is confident that his side are capable of taking on the Owls at Hillsborough.
Perch further added that being the underdogs against Moore’s side will help Mansfield play their natural game without any pressure on them and believes that the Stags will relish their opportunity to play at Hillsborough with a large number of away fans backing them.
“It’s been tough recently [in Sky Bet League Two] so to go to Hillsborough and take a few thousand fans will hopefully [give us the opportunity to] enjoy the day”, Perch told Mansfield Town’s official site.
“It’s brilliant [the supporters’ backing].
“It doesn’t surprise me the numbers going to Hillsborough.
“We can take the experience that we’ve had in previous years of going to big places and big grounds.
“We know we can compete against good teams. We know we can win.
“We’ll take confidence going there.
“I think we can relax a little bit instead of being the favourites.
“We can be the underdogs and play our stuff.”
Sheffield Wednesday won 4-1 the last time Mansfield visited Hillsborough, in 2015.
