Jack Hunt reacts to big Sheffield Wednesday result with social media message



Sheffield Wednesday defender Jack Hunt has paid tribute to striker Lee Gregory while celebrating his side’s 3-2 win over Fleetwood Town on Tuesday night.

Things started well for the Owls in that match, with Gregory firing them ahead inside the opening five minutes.

However, goals from Callum Camps and Joe Garner would turn things around to give Fleetwood a 2-1 lead at half time.

But Gregory was not done yet, and Wednesday’s top scorer would come up with two goals in just 46 seconds half an hour into the second half, to complete his hat-trick, and earn his side a vital 3-2 win in the battle for a League One play-off place.

That results means that Wednesday are fourth in the League One table, two points clear of seventh place Wycombe, meaning they go into their final day clash with Portsmouth at Hillsborough on Saturday, with a play-off spot in their own hands.

Perhaps not surprisingly therefore, Hunt was in a buoyant mood as he took to his Instagram page to react to that win, writing: “AbsoluteLEE fantastic ⚽️⚽️⚽️🤩 big win and 1 more back home we go 🦉”.

The Verdict

What a signing Gregory has been for Wednesday this season, and what a result this was for Wednesday.

That’s now 15 goals in an Owls shirt for Gregory in the league this season, which is at least six more than any other player.

It is clear therefore, just how important he has been to them since joining in the summer, especially when he is making contributions such as this, that turn no points, into three points.

As a result, Wednesday are now in a strong position to secure a top six place heading into the final day, which would give them a shot at an immediate promotion back to the Championship, a remarkable achievement given the state the club was in when they were relegated at the end of last season.
