Jack Hunt and Ryan Lowe tweet messages ahead of Sheffield Wednesday's play off match

Sheffield Wednesday are set to take on Brighton & Hove Albion later this evening.

Sheffield Wednesday has urged Sheffield Wednesday fans to get Hillsborough rocking on social media site Twitter ahead of their play off semi final against Brighton & Hove Albion later this evening.

Wednesday are set to host Chris Hughton’s side in the first leg of their tie, to get the Championship play offs underway.

The Owls go into the contest as underdogs, but Carlos Carvalhal’s side have been strong at home this season and Hunt says that he can’t wait until kick off.

Hunt is likely to start against Brighton this evening, as he is widely regarded as Wednesday’s strongest right-back.

The Owls head into the game on the back of a poor run of form, where they have won just one of their last six matches.

Wednesday also finished 15 points behind Brighton in the regular season, but Chris Hughton’s side’s resilience is set to be tested.

Brighton had a chance to secure an automatic promotion spot on the last day of the season, but they were unable to beat Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.

Wednesday will be looking to inflict further misery on the south coast club, and former players Ryan Lowe and Gary Gardner have also posted messages on social media ahead of the match.
