Bristol City

‘Embarrassing’, ‘Deserve to go down’ – Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday fume as relegation edges closer

Published

Sheffield Wednesday’s survival hopes in the Championship hang by a thread, after the Owls drew 1-1 with Bristol City at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon. 

The Owls went ahead on the day through Julian Borner, before Bristol City were reduced to ten men, after Henri Lansbury was sent-off for a handball, which prevented a goalscoring opportunity.

Barry Bannan missed the resulting penalty though, which proved to be crucial, as Tyreeq Bakinson equalised for Nigel Pearson’s side with just three minutes remaining of the match.

That draw means that Sheffield Wednesday remain 23rd in the second-tier standings, and find themselves seven points adrift of safety, as they head into their final four matches of this year’s campaign.

Which of these facts about Sheffield Wednesday's shirts over the years are genuine and which are fake?

Wednesday's traditional shirt is blue and white vertical stripes?

The Owls are set to take on Blackburn Rovers in their next match, where they could be relegated into League One if they fail to win, and other results don’t go in their favour.

Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday supporters took to social media to voice their frustrations at the draw with the Robins at Hillsborough.
