George Baldock says Sunday's occasion and atmosphere was something that will stay with him forever.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday's clash against Wolves, Baldock admits the noise inside Hillsborough was something else and the 4-2 result was even better.

He commented: "Sunday meant everything to the boys, obviously the Gaffer and Bill had mentioned how big it was but until you experience it you don't quite understand just how much is does mean to the fans, so to get the result was everything.

"It was by far the biggest game I've ever played in. In the huddle, when Couttsy was trying to speak we couldn't hear him, the atmosphere was something else, it will certainly live with me forever.

On beating the Owls coupled with the belief and confidence amongst the squad, Baldock added: "It speaks volumes about us, but it doesn't come as a surprise to us with the way the Gaffer and his staff have got us playing at the minute.

"We aren't surprised to turn over teams like that, we have so much confidence going into games and we always believe we will win every time we step onto the pitch.

"When I first met the Gaffer, he said he doesn't tolerate big names, decorated CV's or who earns what money, it's about a team and he drills that into us every day and it's paying off."
