Owls To Face Wilson's Swindon Next Term

Owls To Face Wilson's Swindon Next Term

Wednesday will come up against former player and manager Danny Wilson and his Swindon Town side next season after Millwall gained promotion via the League One play-offs today.

Millwall skipper Paul Robinson scored the decisive goal against the Robins in the first half as Kenny Jackett's men secured promotion to the Championship at a packed Wembley.

It means the Owls will be up against Swindon Town home and away next season, and possibly facing three former Owls in the process.

Danny Wilson, now manager of Swindon, and players David Lucas and Jon-Paul McGovern have been integral to the Robins' impressive season and are likely to continue in their respective roles next season.

Wednesday will wait to see who wins in tomorrow's League Two play-off final between Rotherham United and Dagenham and Redbridge before knowing the complete line-up of opponents for 2010-11.

Could do with Swindon releasing JP McGovern! If he's still doing well why did we ever let him go?

I think it was more than just his playing abilities as to why we let him go. Not seen him play for Swindon that often, would he still be that good for League Two?

Its that he wouldn't have been good enough for the championship at the time. Not sure we should get players back, its just sentiment and he's been playing reasonably well. Prefer new upa nd coming players that can play in championship if we were lucky enought to go up immediately.
