Sheffield Wednesday ace issues rallying cry ahead of Crewe Alexandra clash



Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to bolster their chances of finishing within the League One play-offs when they welcome already relegated Crewe Alexandra to Hillsborough this evening. 

The Owls, who lost their spot in the division’s top-six as a result of Sunderland and Wycombe Wanderers picking up a point each yesterday, will be eager to secure maximum points against a side who have been largely unimpressive.

Losing 16 out of their last 17 before a 3-1 victory over AFC Wimbledon on Friday, it has been a season to forget for the Railwaymen.

Darren Moore’s side have picked up 15 points from their last seven League One matches, with tonight’s clash another opportunity to improve their already strong recent form.

Ahead of tonight’s kick-off, Barry Bannan has taken to Twitter to address Owls fans and has said: “Hillsborough under the lights get behind the team and roar us on to 3pts.” 

Showing good form in recent weeks, Sheffield Wednesday will be eyeing tonight’s fixture as a great opportunity for all three points, whilst it is also a good chance to better their goal difference.

The Owls have secured some excellent victories over the last few weeks, including 6-0 and 4-1 wins against Cambridge United and Cheltenham Town respectively.

However, sometimes these kind of games can prove to be more of a stumbling block than first anticipated, making an early goal rather important.

Sheffield Wednesday possess the individual quality to hurt any team and will be looking to carry on their fight for a play-off spot with a positive result on home soil.
