Sheffield Wednesday fans overjoyed as play-off spot is confirmed

Sheffield Wednesday booked their place in the Championship play-offs on Saturday with a victory away to Ipswich Town.

After a long, difficult season which at some points threatened to go off the rails, Carlos Carvalhal has managed to finally get over the line with a game to spare and they can now prepare for massive clashes in their search for promotion.

A Kieran Lee goal was enough to secure the three points as they surged to a seven point lead over Leeds United in seventh position.

The Owls have been on an extraordinary run, winning their last six matches to finally realise their potential and secure a play-off spot. They head into the crunch ties full of confidence and in peak form.

While who they play at what stage has yet to be confirmed, they do face a potential opponent next week in the final match of the regular season, at home to Fulham.

Win that and they’ll be moving forward as the form team in the Championship and the side to beat if the other hopefuls have a chance of making it into the English Premier League.
