Over 3,000 Owls fans will be in the away end at Doncaster tomorrow, but one Vital Sheffield Wednesday member will be sitting with the the enemy at the Keepmoat, but she has her reasons.
NicNac has been an 'ever present' on Vital since the Owls site kicked off a few years ago, and a grand poster she is too!
A die-hard Owls fan, who even works at S6 on matchday, she'll be sitting in the Doncaster end tomorrow to watch her beloved Owls, and she tells us exactly why...
With Wednesday's world renowned away following, I'm betting a few if not most of you will have sat in the home end with the opposition a few times.
Well, tomorrow vs Doncaster will be the first time I have ever sat in the home end for an away match, but there is a slight twist.
You see, I am actually *cue dramatic music* a Rovers Season Ticket holder! Now that may seem like the ultimate sin (ok, well penultimate, at least it's not at piggy lane!), but hear me out.
As some of you may already be aware, I work on the turnstiles at our beloved S6. This wonderful job means I get to watch the match once I've finished my duty for nowt!
Around this time last year (a year ago tomorrow actually, quite spooky!) I met my other half. He is a Donny lad and when it came round to buying an ST for himself at the beginning of this season, he got me one too. This might sound crazy but, when Wednesday are away, Donny are at home and vice versa, which means I get to see all home games by both teams. Hurrah!
Having watched a lot of football with Rovers over the past year (I even travelled to Villa Park when they played them in the Cup the other week) I can tell you they will not be pushovers. They have been playing fantastic football all season, yet were left wanting for that bit of luck or critical finishing, which saw them wallowing down in the relegation places. An undeserved position if there ever was one.
Now they've managed to score some goals, string some results together and started to drag their way out of the bottom of the league.
Some of you may remember November when we played them at Hillsborough. A horrible game by all accounts, and Rovers dominated our midfield for much of the second half. Though I think we probably just edged it and in the end deserved our 1-0 win.
Which of course leads me to tomorrow and the return fixture. At the beginning of the season February seemed a long way away, and so I hadn't really put much thought into it. But now, as the fixture (and anniversary) gets closer, I'm starting to get a funny feeling in my stomach.
Will we score? Donny have a fantastic defensive record at home. What will I do if we do score? I can't exactly jump up and down. And what if they score? They've certainly found their shooting boots recently, especially now their midfield has started chipping with a few. How will I feel?
All these questions and more I guess won't be answered until tomorrow if/when they actually happen. Split loyalties some may say? Not likely. Any other fixture and Donny can beat who they like, good luck to them and I wouldn't like to see them relegated. But when it comes to playing Wednesday, it can only ever be one team for me.
Come on you blue and white wizards, let's complete our second South Yorkshire double in a week!
