Owls Need To Sting Hornets

Wednesday need to end their three-game run of draws when Watford visit Hillsborough on Wednesday night (kick-off 7.45pm).

The visit of the Hornets provides the Owls with their biggest match of the season so far - no doubt more will follow before the end of the campaign - and victory has never been more important for Alan Irvine and his men.

The successive draws in the Championship and one defeat in the Owls' last five outings have given Wednesdayites hope that they can remain a Championship side come the end of the season.

But those draws need to turn into victories sooner rather than later and, all due respect to Watford, Wednesday night's game is simply a must-win.

The nail won't firmly be in the coffin if we don't win, but three points would give the Owls a massive boost going into the 'business end' of the campaign.

The clash, along with the final day of the season match against Crystal Palace, are arguably the most winnable matches remaining this term.

Watford haven't won away from home since early October - before they inflicted a heavy 4-1 defeat on the Owls at Vicarage Road just a few weeks later.

Victory for the Owls wouldn't just keep them out of the relegation zone, it would also see them leapfrog the Hornets and put Watford firmly in the relegation mix.

No disrespect meant to Watford, our meeting on what will be a cold Wednesday night at S6 isn't the most appealing of fixtures normally.

But this isn't a normal match, it's a vital match in Wednesday's season and one which the eleven men that take to the Hillsborough pitch need to be up for if they're to get anything from the game.

A win is a must - come on Wednesday!

Come on WEDNESDAY three precious points required. Hopefully results go our way tonight (tues) and a win (wed) will give us a glimmer of light from the relegation zone. Lets keep believing. Mr Clough thinks 50 points will be enough lets get to that mark sharpish and then push on. UTO
