Exclusive: Ex-Sheff Weds star makes huge promotion prediction

Former Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Mark Crossley insists that the club will win automatic promotion from League One this season.

The club endured a terrible season last term, finishing rock-bottom of the Championship, having won just 12 of their 46 games.

They ultimately finished the season with 41 points, and dropped into the third-tier at the end of the season.

Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?





Wednesday have begun their League One season unbeaten, drawing 0-0 with Charlton Athletic, and beating both Doncaster Rovers and Fleetwood Town, 2-0 and 1-0 respectively.

Only Portsmouth and Burton Albion have taken maximum points from their first three games, meaning that Wednesday are currently fourth in the table. They are one of only two sides who have yet to concede a goal, along with Pompey.

And Crossley believes that Wednesday can only finish in the automatic promotion slots as the season progresses and return to the Championship, making particular reference to the excellent performance against Doncaster.

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, he said: “So I only see Sheffield Wednesday getting automatic promotion this season and looking at the performance on Saturday, it was a good solid performance although Doncaster came to spoil the performance and they did very well in the first half to do that, they made the crowd really, really quiet.

“In the second half Sheffield Wednesday just overpowered them.”
