Owls Flock To Middlesbrough

Owls Flock To Middlesbrough

Wednesdayites are set to travel to The Riverside Stadium en masse this weekend to try and cheer the Owls to three crucial Championship points against Middlesbrough.

Owls fans have snapped up the initial allocation of almost 2,000 tickets for the trip to face Gordon Strachan's men and a new batch will be on sale from 2pm this afternoon.

It means almost 4,000 Owls fans could make the trip to support Alan Irvine's men in what's a huge match which could help decide their Championship future.

A further 2,000 tickets have been sent by Boro which will be on sale from this afternoon for the rest of the week.

It's the first time Wednesday will have made the trip to The Riverside in over a decade, with the last trip coming in the Premier League days of 2000.

Tickets can be bought by visiting the SWFC online ticketing website.

We'll be lucky to get anything from that game. I am afraid that we are going to have to rely on other results to avoide relegation this year. It's not in our own hands. I know we have got Palace in the last game of the season but they could be too far ahead by then. I fear the worst!

I can't understand why you're in trouble, your team caused us more problems that the following five to visit the City Ground. Play like you did that day and you won't go down. Good luck Owls.

The Forest fan is totally right.. we probabll played them off the park second half yet still lost. We don't score sadly. If we get something Sat then can see us staying up. Lose then its over. We have got to go there all guns blazing. Start with Jeffers hes still the best finisher at the club don't care what anyone says!!

yes James I totally agree. we've failed in front of goal all season and Jeffers needs to start, I only hope he's sharp enough as he hasn't played much. to be honest I'd advocate a shoot on sight policy on saturday as we are not making opposition goal keepers work at all, even when we finally work the ball into a goal scoring position we can't hit the target. get shooting earlier!

Yes he probably is a bit rusty but nothing to lose hes got to start. He could end up saving us this year if we can get a few goals from him. To be honest I feel for him, yes he picks up a very good wage for a club in our position but look at his injuries hes had. Hes a footballer and football players like playing and strikers like scoring and he been unlucky with injuries. I think Irvine will go with him and he likes him from Everton days. UTO. Got to stay up.
