We're not ones to pass up a good stat here at Vital Wednesday and we think the fact that 12 different Wednesday players have got on the scoresheet in 12 league games so far is worth a mention.
Striker Gary Madine may be getting all the plaudits with his ten-goal haul so far this term but Wednesday are finding goals from all across the pitch in npower League One - quite a useful asset.
After twelve games of the Owls' league campaign, 12 different players have already found the back of the net. Wednesday have, of course, romped up to second in the table and have won all six of their home matches thus far - scoring goals aplenty in the process. Boring Gary Megson eh?
As well as top scorer Madine, Rob Jones, David Prutton, Chris Sedgwick, Julian Bennett, Clinton Morrison, Ben Marshall, Liam Palmer, David McGoldrick, James O'Connor, Reda Johnson and Lewis Buxton have all netted in the league.
Morrison is, of course, on-loan at MK Dons at the moment but he still found the back of the net for Wednesday in the 1-1 draw at Charlton Athletic before moving on.
The fact that three of Wednesday's preferred back four - Bennett, Jones and Buxton - have already found the onion bag goes a long way to showing Wednesday's big threat from set-pieces.
But Megson's men can mix it up, with Marshall scoring a couple of fine solo efforts, Madine being the league's current top scorer, and heck, even James O'Connor - no offence James - getting in on the act.
One thing many Owls fans may have been concerned about under the leadership of Megson was perhaps a lack of goals, taking a 1-0 lead and sitting back on it, but a lot of games, especially at home, have been far from that. Away is a different story, but at least things seem to be turning around for the better there, too.
It's a great stat for Wednesdayites, and Megson, to have at this stage of the season, and with Chris O'Grady back in action and Ryan Lowe not far off a return, you can bet there will be moire names added to that list sooner rather than later.
Maybe Danny Batth, Chris Lines, Jose Semedo or Jermaine Johnson can add their name to that list in some fashion this weekend...
