View From The Town End: Sheffield Wednesday

It's safe to say our last trip to Hillsborough didn't quite go to plan as we were thumped 5-2. Thankfully we come into tomorrow's game in much better form and ahead of the game we spoke to Sheffield Wednesday fan Joe Crann to get his views.

Tim Keeton

How would you sum up Wednesday's season so far?

Simply put... Started awful, but finally starting to pick up a bit of form and I think we'll be alright. Nothing flashy, but picking up points now.

Dave Jones was removed before Christmas and has since been replaced by caretaker Stuart Gray, were fans happy with the change?

In general, yes. Nobody wants to see managers being fired left, right and centre, but it did appear that we needed a change. Gray has been brilliant since he came in, and you can't argue with the results!


You utterly stuffed us at Hillsborough earlier this season, what did you make of Reading that day and their progress since?

Haha. Yeah, I don't think anyone would have predicted that result on the day! But you guys have picked up the pace nicely. Four wins out of five and only one defeat in 2014 is impressive. Maybe you can grab a playoff spot.


Anyone Wednesday are worried about ahead of Saturday's game?

Obviously Le Fondre, everyone knows what he's capable of in front of goal if he's on form. He's your top scorer too, so no doubt our boys will have been watching his videos!


Anyone Reading fans should be worried about?

Chris Maguire seems to be finding his feet a little at the minute with some good performances, as does Jeremy Helan on the wing. Your old boy, Michail Antonio, is set for a return from injury too, and we all know how players love to score against their former teams...

Score prediction?

I'd take a 1-1 draw away at your place, but I'm hoping we'll manage to scrape a win.


Who are the three you're tipping to go up and come down in the Championship this year?

I think the current top two, Leicester and QPR will take the automatic spots, and with regards to the playoffs I think either yourselves or Forest could snatch it. Then again, the Championship is the most unpredictable league in the world!
