Sheffield Wednesday produced a fantastic first 23 minutes against Cardiff City this evening, as they raced into a three goal lead.
With Wycombe winning earlier in the day, the Owls went into this game sitting bottom of the Championship and nine points from safety. So, if they wanted to keep their faint survival hopes alive, they needed to win.
But, it certainly galvanised the Yorkshire outfit, with Julian Borner heading them in front after just four minutes.
Next, a superb, drilled cross from Liam Palmer was expertly volleyed in by Callum Paterson, before Adam Reach curled a free-kick into the top corner just minutes later.
Did these 25 players make more or less than 100 Sheffield Wednesday appearances?
Obviously, this start delighted the Wednesday fans, and many couldn’t believe they were watching the same team that had managed just 28 goals in 38 games going into the fixture, and had looked so toothless at Watford on Friday.
Here we look at some of the comments to the start from Twitter…
