Owls Fans Favour New Strike Pairing

We gave Vital Sheffield Wednesday users a choice of various strike pairings to choose from who they think would do the best job of helping to keep the Owls in the Championship.

Deon Burton and Steven Maclean appear to be the fans favourite at the moment, with the pair chalking up 47 per cent of the votes. Maclean has not featured for the Owls since his injury in pre-season, but top scored for the club in the promotion campaign last season. Burton has made just one appearance in a blue and white shirt after signing from Rotherham. Despite this, Owls fans are still looking forward to seeing the partnership together, and believe the due will have enough firepower to keep us up.

The potential partnership of Maclean with new signing Marcus Tudgay notched up 34 per cent of the fans votes. Tudgay scored on his debut against Crewe Alexandra last week and impressed in the cup game with Charlton. He signed a four-and-a-half with the club last week.

Despite being the only partnership to play together, and play together successfully, Deon Burton and Marcus Tudgay only recieved 14 per cent of the votes. The pair played well in the 3-0 victory over Crewe earlier this month, and are likely to continue against Leicester City this week.

Fans have clearly shown they believe David Graham will be down the pecking order when he returns to full fitness in a couple of weeks. Graham only recieved a total of five per cent of the votes alongside Burton, Tudgay, and Maclean.

**Due to the system only allowing six options on the poll, I decided to leave out Barry Corr and Danny Reet, who are likely to be part of Paul Sturrock's plans for the future rather than the present.
