Leeds United will be expecting their second biggest crowd of the season as Wednesday make the short trip up the M1 for a huge Yorkshire derby at Elland Road tomorrow.
Over 26,000 fans are expected for the clash - which will be United's second biggest gate of the campaign behind the near-30,000 they got for the QPR match last month - a match which the Whites offered discounted tickets.
And the gate will be boosted by a travelling support of almost 5,000 Wednesday fans who will be going in hope of seeing their side put another nail in the Leeds United coffin.
And Owls captain Lee Bullen can't wait to make the short trip up the M1.
'The following that the club have never fails to astound me,' he told the Sheffield Star.
'I know the Leeds game is a derby, with not much travelling involved, but we sell out just about everywhere: Southampton, Plymouth, Colchester.
'Until you come and play for the club you don't realise the size of the followings that they get and the amount of travelling the supporters do. There's nothing better for a players when the fans make it more like a home game than an away game.'
Dennis Wise told the official LUFC site: 'They'll bring a lot of fans and it'll be a good atmosphere. It'll be nice to have another good crowd and it'll be a good game.
The Owls sold out their initial 3,000 allocation behind the goal, but such was demand Leeds officials gave Wednesday another 1,800 tickets in the South East corner, which were all set to sell-out on Friday morning.
