Written by Katya Witney

Owls fans have sent their messages of support to Sheffield Wire and promised to create a ‘rocking’ atmosphere at Hillsborough ahead of Wednesday’s second-leg fixture against Sunderland tonight.

Wednesday are bidding to win a place in the play-off final at Wembley against Wycombe Wanderers on 21 May.

“It’s a massive game for the club today, season-defining,” said super-fan Al Maplo. “It’s been a long slog to get here with many highs and lows but we’ve been on a great run since the turn of the year so now it’s time to get out there and show us what you can do.

“We believe in you! Come on Wednesday!”

Steven Smith, who will be supporting Wednesday at Hillsborough tonight, said: “Play like your life depends on it and we will make the noise. If we see you doing everything you can, then win, lose or draw you’ll be supported. It’s up to you lads. C’mon Wednesday.”

The Owls lost the first leg of the knock-out stage 1-0 at the Stadium of Light on Friday after Sam Hutchinson was able to take advantage of a mistake at a Wednesday corner and score the only goal of the match.

Darren Moore’s side will be hoping to pull back the deficit in front of a sold-out home crowd at Hillsborough tonight.

“Leave it all out there. We have your backs,” said Peter A. Lohmann, host of the Owls About Stat podcast.

The SWFC Armed Forces Supporters Club said: “Best of luck to the lads tonight, dig deep and we’ll shout as loud as we can to help you across the line! We know what we can do at home, we have a proven record of great results. All we want to see is 90+ minutes of 100% effort out there and I’m sure you’ll get the job done! Up the Owls!”

The match tonight will have Sheffield Wednesday fans all over the world glued to their screens. The Owls Americas supporters club which unites Wednesday fans across the Americas said: “We are all behind them, across the Americas we’ll be shouting at our TV’s in bars from Atlanta to New York City.”

Claire Patterson, who travelled to support Wednesday at Sunderland on Friday, said: ‘We’re all behind you tonight, Hillsborough will be rocking, the place will be packed and the noise will be unbelievable.

“Forget Friday’s error, it’s done and dusted, we can’t change it so go out and give it your all, get that early equaliser and push on. We’re All Wednesday Aren’t We, come on you blues!”

Fans will descend on Hillsborough for a 7.45pm kick-off tonight in what promises to be an electric atmosphere.
