The League One Play-Off matches start tonight, as four teams look to be joining Wednesday in the Championship - but who do Wednesday fans want to be up against next term?
Doncaster Rovers, Leeds United, Carlisle United and Southend United will all do battle in the play-offs, and the latest poll on Vital Sheffield Wednesday shows that users would prefer to see South Yorkshire rivals Doncaster Rovers promoted out of the four.
Rovers took almost half of your votes with 49 per cent, with, almost alarmingly, Leeds United coming in second with 33 per cent (although we assume some of our friends from Elland Road had their say in this too!), Southend United coming up in third with 13 per cent of the votes, and Carlisle United the least favourite amongst Owls fans to achieve promotion, with the remaining five per cent.
And it's Rovers who kick-started the play-offs tonight when they travel to Roots Hall to take on a Southend United side who were involved in Championship action last season and will be keen to bounce back.
The KeepMoat Stadium club only just missed out on automatic promotion to Nottingham Forest on the final day of the season, and Rovers will be looking to do it the hard way.
Leeds United will host Carlisle United in the other League One play-off clash on Monday night, with a full house expected at Elland Road as Leeds look to bounce straight back to the Championship following their dramatic relegation last term.
And on the poll, Vital Sheffield Wednesday members said:
will it ever happen: Carlisle for me. Need to be looking at a team who we can take 6 points off and Carlise looks like the one?
spirtySWFC: Southend or Carlisle for me, mainly so I can go to a ground I've never been to before (though the same could be said for Donny), but also because derby games can go either way, and although we've been good in them of late I'd much prefer us to play the other two.
Smurf: Anyone but Leeds. Can I make it anymore obvious?
Auckland Owl: Let's have Donny, another derby.
Disgruntled Owl: Donny definitely. Beat Leeds in the final. Only a quick train journey for the away game. And what do you mean, too many derbies can hinder a promotion push, these are the only games that we've won this season!
Wednesday fans will, of course, be familiar with the League One Play-Offs, with Paul Sturrock guiding the Owls to promotion via Brentford and Hartlepool in the 2005 final at Cardiff - with winners getting the chance to play at Wembley this time around.
