Owls stay second as Addicks beat Town

Owls stay second as Addicks beat Town

Wednesday retained second spot in npower League One tonight as Huddersfield Town's 43-game unbeaten run came to an end with a 2-0 loss at leaders Charlton Athletic.

The Terriers, the form side of the Football League thanks to their record-breaking run, could have leapfrogged back above Wednesday tonight had they avoided defeat at The Valley.

But Chris Powell's men showed just why they're favourites for promotion with what turned out to be a convincing win over Lee Clark's men.

It means the Owls will stay in second for almost two weeks at least, with the FA Cup taking priority next weekend.

Charlton are now seven points clear at the top of League One thanks to tonight's impressive win.

Happy with that, let Charlton run away with the league and we'll cement 2nd place!!

I don't want to sound greedy or anything, but the fact is Wednesday haven't won a championship in over 50 years. I think this is the best chance we're likely to get (until next year!). Huddersfield at home is going to be massive for us but I'm sure Meggo already has one eye on Charlton with a mind to closing that gap.

Michael Morrison still seems to be doing a good job for Charlton. Pity we didnt keep hold of him, instead of having several loanees in our central defensive area.

Happy to be 2nd, but not happy about Charlton building a gap at the top. We need them to lose BWP sometime soon like we have with Madine and drop a few points in the next 5 games. Thing is, their next 5 fixtures all look winnable - the hardest fixture they have is Brentford at home. We on the other hand have Oldham, Huddersfield and Preston coming up - all tough fixtures, especially compacted into the Christmas period. A bit of luck and we can keep on their coat tails!

Cant see Charlton dropping many points with the squad they have. I reckon its that 2nd spot we should be after cos we are well capable of getting it. We dont want to be going into the play off lottery really.
