Come On Wednesday!

Come On Wednesday!

Today's the day, that time of the season again when the red and white and the blue and white half of the city clash, and Vital Sheffield Wednesday would like to say - COME ON WEDNESDAY!

The Blades may have only given us 2,000 tickets for Sheffield's third, hey, I'll be nice, second, best stadium in the Steel City, behind Hillsborough of course, but it goes without saying those 3,000 will be singing their hearts out and putting the Blades support to shame again.

The three points mean much more to Owls' fans other than bragging rights, they're three points towards survival in the Championship with the clash being the Owls' game in hand on most of their relegation rivals.

I'm sure some Owls' fans would take the victory over the Blades to make it a season double, and the first win at Bramall Lane for quiet some time, over three points against relegation, but it means much more than that.

Passions will be high from the red and white side of the city too, with Kevin Blackwell steering his troops to within reach of the play-offs, and nothing less than a victory will do against Wednesday tonight.

Let's not beat around the bush, Wednesday are firm underdogs going in to the clash, pretty much the same as all the recent Steel City clashes.

Brian Laws will take an extremely makeshift side to Bramall Lane tonight, with the injury list almost making a starting eleven that would take to the pitch with key names such as Frank Simek and Akpo Sodje out of the frame.

And Wednesday have been far from great, the table doesn't lie so the saying goes.

But the battling performances of late to pick up some crucial points (and maybe dropping some others) will stand them in good stead for an 'entertaining' evening at the Lane, which is sure to bring an electric atmosphere to the forefront.

I'm sure, as well as the 2,000 fans that are lucky enough to be making the short trip (and the many more that will probably be in the home ends), that thousands of Wednesday fans will be sat at home listening to the radio and cheering on the blue and white wizards.

Why not share your joy, or your anguish, on the Vital Sheffield Wednesday forums with other Owls fans before, during or after the match?

All that's left to say is - COME ON WEDNESDAY!
