Darren Moore has urged a near sellout Wednesday crowd to ‘sing their hearts out for the team’ for tomorrow’s top-of-the-table clash with Plymouth at Hillsborough.
We go into the match in second place, three points behind leaders Plymouth and knowing that a win would take us top of the division one table on goal difference and with a game in hand.
Manager Moore confirmed today that the midfield pair of Barry Bannan and George Byers are fit to start after returning to the squad from injury and both playing the last 30 minutes in the FA Cup tie with Fleetwood.
There were less than 300 tickets remaining this evening for the S6 showdown, Plymouth also having sold out their allocation, and focussing on tomorrow’s game, Moore said: “When I came here I said I wanted to see this place full and that means we’re doing something right.
“To see it full again will be a joyful moment. I want to thank all the supporters but what I will say is, sing your hearts out for the team. There’s no better place when Hillsborough is full and the crowd are in full voice.
“Let’s make it nice and loud. It puts the hairs up on the back of your neck when the crowd are in full voice. It’s a special, special place, we have a passionate fanbase and it will be special tomorrow.
“The players also know what it means to play for Sheffield Wednesday and I want them to be proud when they pull that shirt on.”
Third-placed Ipswich, four points behind us and having played a game more, are away to struggling Cambridge tomorrow.
