Twice in a month these two Titans of the Championship clash, this time at Deepdale, the second in a run of tough home games with Arsenal and Brighton next to graced the pristine Deepdale turf. Must be something in the Yorkshire air this season as they have three sides in the top six, having won at the Toon on Monday a cracking result and from the bit I saw worthy winners. Thed Owls will be in confident mood and will be backed by a large away support having been given close to 6000 tickets, so it should be a good atmosphere at the ground. They have won five out of the last six and are very tight defensively with clean sheets in the last three games. Lees didn't play at St James's they didn't miss him though. Strong squad at Carlos's desposal with some very seasoned pro's Fletcher, Wallace, Bannan and Loovens backed up with an abundence of overseas imports including Fernado Forestieri who likes to score a few. Interesting fact Wednesday beat Spora Luxembourg 8-1 in the UEFA Cup in 1992-93 a competition which we have never remotely got close to ever playing in. Long term injured Gallagher and Welsh seem no closer to playing, May will probably be back in the squad personal view like to see him get some game time. Beckford suspended again!!! A couple of points as Becks is unavailable who is Doyle going to fight with and will Fernando get a hat trick of reds against us I'm sure Pearson will be stirring it with him. Cannot recall the last time we played on New Years Eve although do remember one trip to Peterborough on NYE in teh late 1970's coach broke down, replacement got bricked, got their at half time and lost to a goal in the las 15 seconds a whizzo trip. Hopefully we will be up for this game to banish the memory of the lat home game.
