Stan Collymore shares his thoughts on a potential Sheffield Wednesday promotion

Sheffield Wednesday are on course for a spot in the play-off final.

Former player Stan Collymore has suggested on social networking site Twitter that he would love to see Sheffield Wednesday back in the Premier League, labelling them a huge club in a great city.

The Owls haven’t been in the top-flight for over 15 years following their relegation to the Championship.

Plenty has happened since then, including a relegation to League One. However, this season has marked a real contrast in fortunes for the club as they seek a long-awaited return to the top-flight.

Wednesday finished sixth in the Championship table in Carlos Carvalhal’s debut season, and they look on course for a spot in the playoff final following a 2-0 first-leg win over Brighton and Hove Albion.

Commenting on a potential promotion for the Owls, Collymore says he would love to see it happen.

Wednesday took charge of their play semi-final with Brighton by beating the Seagulls 2-0 at Hillsborough.

Ross Wallace grabbed the opener on the stroke of half-time before Chris Hughton’s men were reduced to ten men before the hour mark, incredibly as a result of four hugely unlucky injuries.

Wednesday seized the initiative, and Kieran Lee’s fine finish midway through the second period has put the Yorkshire club firmly in control of the tie and huge favourites to reach the final at Wembley.
