Promotion is on. The brief for Wednesday is simple; beat already relegated Wycombe at Hillsborough, and they`re promoted.
Dave Jones masterstroke inspired today`s win at Brentford. Keith Treacy made his first start for the Owls in a game that had potential to be tricky.
The first half an hour was like a Roy Hodgson interview; very pleasant and well mannered, but nothing much actually happened.
Then on 37 minutes Brentford captain Jonathan Douglas produced a moment of magic, managing to target the cross bar perfectly from 10 yards out; good aim.
Wednesday took the hint and scored within 2 minutes. Debut boy Keith Treacy (remember him from the Dave Jones masterstroke?) curled a free kick inside the near post. It was taken quickly and caught keeper Simon Moore wondering what he was going to have for tea.
Clayton Donaldson tried to repeat the trick at the other end with a more drawn out affair of a free kick. The shot was accurate, powerful and only bettered by the save Stephen Bywater pulled off to keep Wednesday in the lead.
Donaldson wasn`t to be denied though, and in the 62nd minute he was brought down by Mark Beevers. He stepped up to drive the ball into the middle of the net and equalize for Uwe Rosler`s team.
Beevers, already booked, escaped his marching orders, but was living dangerously. He mistimed a tackle on Forrester. A free kick was awarded, but that wasn`t enough for the Brentford players who, keen to show the spirit of the Olympics that`ll be taking place up the road from them this Summer, surrounded the referee and demanded that Beevers be sent off. Having a continental manager must have tricked them into thinking they`re playing in Europe.
Jones sensibly took the defender off a couple of minutes later.
Another minute gone and Treacy (good work Jones) curled a corner straight onto Miguel Llera`s head for his fourth goal in 5 games; 2 - 1.
Brentford had their chances to get back into the game, but through a combination of Bywater playing like Kevin Pressman reborn, and an ability to finish befitting a eunuch at an orgy, the score stayed 2 - 1.
Coupled with Sheffield United`s big choke against Stevenage, and this win keeps Danny Wilson`s undercover mission very much on.
