Sheffield Wednesday picked up an important three points in their battle to survive in the Championship on Tuesday evening.
The Owls beat Blackburn Rovers 1-0 at Hillsborough to keep their faint survival chances alive in the second-tier, although it still looks as though it’ll be a tough ask for Darren Moore’s side.
Josh Windass scored the only goal of the game, as they picked up a much-needed win in the Championship.
Sheffield Wednesday are currently sat 23rd in the Championship table, but find themselves four points adrift of safety, as they head into their final three matches of this year’s campaign.
Liam Palmer played the full 90 minutes in the win over Tony Mowbray’s side, in what was his 38th appearance of the season for the Owls.
The Scottish international took to Instagram to reveal that he and his team-mates will keep fighting until the end in the battle to survive.
Palmer’s former Sheffield Wednesday team-mate Lucas Joao was quick to respond to his message, and wished him well in their battle to avoid relegation into the third-tier of English football.
Joao made 127 appearances for Sheffield Wednesday, before moving to Reading in the summer of 2019, where he has since gone on to impress in front of goal with the Berkshire-based side.
The forward has scored 22 goals in 37 appearances for Reading this season, and will be hoping he can score the goals to push them into the play-off positions before the end of this year’s campaign.
Sheffield Wednesday are set to return to action this weekend, when they take on Middlesbrough at the Riverside, in what is likely to be a tricky test.

It’s good to see Joao wishing his former Sheffield Wednesday team-mate well in their battle to survive.
It’s been a season to forget for Sheffield Wednesday, but they certainly needed to pick up three points from the game against Blackburn Rovers.
Survival still looks as though it’s going to be a tough ask for Darren Moore’s side to avoid relegation into League One, with other teams being better-placed to avoid the drop this term.
You have to imagine what could have been for Sheffield Wednesday if they had a striker of Joao’s quality in their squad this season.
