Tigers and Wolves Aid Owls

Tigers and Wolves Aid Owls

Wednesday may not have been in Championship action on Tuesday night but they certainly gained a boost in the battle against relegation thanks to two other results on the night.

Two of the Owls' relegation rivals, Colchester United and Scunthorpe United were both in action and desperate for wins, but both fell to defeats against Hull City and Wolverhampton Wanderers respectively.

And the results mean good news for Owls boss Brian Laws and the Wednesday faithful, with both Colchester and Scunthorpe sitting below Wednesday in the Championship table and now being left with a tough task to claw their way to safety.

Laws' former club Scunthorpe fell to a 2-1 defeat against Wolves, leaving them five points behind Wednesday, with the Owls enjoying two games in hand on United, while Colchester's home defeat to Hull City leaves them a whopping ten points behind Wednesday, the Owls again with two games in hand.

It means that bookies will be shortening the odds dramatically on both Scunthorpe and Colchester for the drop, with just one place realistically left to be occupied in the Championship bottom three.

Wednesday still stay in the bottom three but will be confident of pulling out with two games in hand on most of their rivals, and will be looking to grab a vital three points at home against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
