Owls Prepare For Hartlepool

Wednesday are preparing for a friendly match in a slightly cooler climate when they travel to Hartlepool United tonight.

The Owls have enjoyed a team bonding pre-season tour of Malta recently, and will no doubt be taking their orange tans with them to the cold and rain of Hartlepool tonight, kick-off 7.30pm.

Brian Laws is expected to field a strong line-up for the clash at Victoria Park, which will pit Wednesday against former player and manager Chris Turner.

Tommy Miller is ruled out for a return to his former club through a thigh strain.

A decent crowd is expected for the match, with the fixture being the only home friendly fixture of the pre-season for the League One club.

Not sure there'll be too big a crowd. Everyone is up in arms at the charging 13 a ticket for a meaningless game.

Fair point Poolie, some numpties ought to get a grip of pricing policies. Higher price doesn't always mean higher profits!

Totally agree, if they'd charged a tenner there would be a far bigger crowd. People won't pay more than that out of principle.

Totally agree, a tenner is what it should cost to watch football. Get grounds full again and let the clubs make more money from refreshments and souvenirs. Not only that but packed grounds encourage better performances, which can mean success on the pitch. Promotion, cup runs and all that.
