Owls Return To Bottom Three

Owls Return To Bottom Three

Despite not being in action today, Wednesday returned to the Championship's bottom three after Iain Hume bagged a late leveller for Leicester City - but it's not all bad for Wednesday.

The Owls looked to have been getting a welcome boost with Ian Holloway's Foxes trailing already-relegated Colchester on their home soil, but Hume's late striker has lifted them above Wednesday on goal difference.

Elsewhere, Barnsley look to have done enough to survive this season after bagging another impressive victory, this time a 2-1 win away at Preston doing the trick for Simon Davey's troops.

But results for the Owls' other relegation rivals went in our favour, with Blackpool falling to a 3-1 defeat at Cardiff City, Coventry throwing away a lead to go down 2-1 at home to table-toppers Stoke City, and Southampton being held 1-1 at Charlton.

Scunthorpe United's fate was also sealed as Nigel Adkins' men failed to overcome Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, going down 2-0 to Neil Warnocks' troops to seal their relegation back to League One.

Owls boss Brian Laws is sure to be relatively happy with the outcome, with only Barnsley picking up three points, but will only breathe a sigh of relief should his men pick up three points against Plymouth Argyle on Monday night.

Results of the Owls' relegation rivals:

Cardiff City 3-1 Blackpool
Charlton 1-1 Southampton
Coventry City 1-2 Stoke City
Crystal Palace 2-0 Scunthorpe United
Leicester City 1-1 Colchester United

If we played like we did in both games against you lot more often this season we'd be top 6, unfortunately the die was cast for the season in the 1st minute of the 1st match conceding a penalty at Ipswich and going on to lose 4-1, being 2 nil up at Charlton a few games later and ending up loosing 3-2 was also a sickener! When you lose all of the 1st 6 matches of the season, you're going to spend the rest of the season in and around the relegation places. Colchester and Scunny didn't start that badly and are already relegated so we have done OK considering the long term injuries suffered by key players and 3 of the best players from last season now plying their trade elsewhere (maclean/brunt/whelan).

Cheers mkblade. Good to see a pig trying to stick up for us!! I would have took those results today at 2.59pm. It's got to be nothing else but a win on Monday night, a draw is not good enough. I can see us winning the game 2-1 but it's going to be one hell of a nervous night, not for the faint hearted. I best stay away then!!
will it ever happen

I'm also going for a 3-1 win Monday night, Sahar 1st goal. I'll be happy to let macca slot a last minute consolation as well!

The beginning of the season was a real worry for me, defenders never got close to there man and both keepers were comical. We need to be much better prepared for next season. We can not let teams have 18point starts on us again.

You're playing devils advocate again bfl! But thanks for the compliment! If we stay up, doubt we'll be able to afford to Songo'o outright, unless the takeover goes through. I don't reckon Harry will want to let him go anyway. He's an awesome prospect. A season long loan is more realistic and would be very welcome

not playing devils advocate at all s6apple just other ppl that insult for no reason anyway not getting into it all again. yeh you right he is an amazing prospect and he look dangerous everytime he got the ball. do you think you could tempt them with a 1m cash deal straight away? hes not going to get any football at his parent club lets be honnest. do you think the take over will happen if you stay up?
