Sheffield Wednesday stayed in sixth spot in the Sky Bet Championship last night after a last gasp Blackburn Rovers goal meant that Fulham dropped two points and remained one behind the Owls.
It was a double victory for Sheffield Wednesday fans too, as their own striker scored the goal.
Lucas Joao joined Blackburn Rovers from Sheffield Wednesday in January and he helped with a telling contribution: a 94th minute equaliser to keep his parent club in the play-off zone.
This was Fulham’s game in hand on Sheffield Wednesday and a win would have lifted them above the Yorkshire side into the top six.
Blackburn’s equaliser therefore comes as a massive relief for Wednesday fans, who are desperate for their side to maintain a promotion push.
Sheffield Wednesday supporters took to Twitter to thank Blackburn Rovers for costing Fulham two points and their own striker Lucas Joao for dealing that blow.
Here are a selection of the best.

All of a sudden Joao is our saviour. Are we forgetting he wasn't very good for us! And the fact he cried when he lost a tooth ???? #swfc

Ironic that probably the biggest goal Joao will get for #swfc will actually be for Blackburn.
