Can Wednesday Stay Up?

Wednesday bagged a vital three points against relegation rivals Colchester United on Tuesday night and lifted themselves out of the Championship bottom three, and we at Vital Sheffield Wednesday want to know if you think the Owls can survive.

This week's poll is asking whether you believe Wednesday can win their battle against relegation, or whether the Owls will still find themselves back in League One next season.

It could be said that Brian Laws' men are one of the favourites to survive the drop after climbing out of the bottom three, still with one or even two games in hand on their rivals.

But there's still a long way to go, and with teams such as Preston, Scunthorpe, Barnsley and Southampton also gaining valuable wins, the race for survival is still very much in the mix.

Do you think Wednesday can keep themselves in the division or do you think the run-in will be too much for the Owls?

Have YOUR say now by voting in this week's Vital Sheffield Wednesday poll, or by having your say on the Vital Sheffield Wednesday forums.

Yes, we will stay up. We need to if we have any chance of getting the much needed investment.

like i said, in a previous post! Can anyone believe the amount of injured/suspended players we got? Bolder/Johnson/Esajas/Watson/Sodje/Jeffers/Sahar/Simek/Bullen/Clarke/ - With the current side performing and all this talent returning soon, it can only be a good thing.

No bigash, I can't. It's been an horrendous season injury wise. Though, to be fair, some of those really aren't missed too much (for their typical performances)............Bully, Clarke......... And I wish Laws would send Showumni back to Ashton Gate. Could get someone decent in on loan in place of him

Cov played pretty well last night (and they observed the minute's silence for Derek Dooley impeccably). I was forced to listen to the commentary by him indoors. Still, they are not awash with confidence at the moment, and the home support has been shaky of late. So I am feeling pretty confident that we will come away with that encounter with something.

this division is unbelievable, there isn't one outstanding side and anybody can beat anyone, we do need more than 50 points, the sides around us are all capable of reaching that target so we have to up the ante, i've seen us holding our own against the top sides so it should be within us to get a run together and get out of this relegation dogfight.

Hey BFL1889, I'm (as the name says) from the States and have only have lived in Sheffield a few years. That's probably why, although I think the blades are crap, don't have anything against the supporters. Where I'm from the nearest rival is a 14hr drive away... so we don't have the same sort of banter (the long distance got a bit pricey on the phone bill for slagging off the Green Bay Packer fans before the internet came around!). I, for one, appreciate the praise. Not that I'm trying to change the tone of anyone else (I'm just a guest in this country after all and I do enjoy some of the banter), but in the spirit of Dooley I appreciate your praise. Cheers!
