Sheffield Wednesday fans react on Twitter as Owls reach play-off final with Keiren Westwood taking many of the plaudits

Sheffield Wednesday

Wednesday beat Brighton to take themselves to within one game of the Premier League.

Sheffield Wednesday booked their place in the Championship play-off final after their 1-1 draw with Brighton on Monday saw them win the tie 3-1 on aggregate. 

Goals from Ross Wallace and Kieran Lee ensured that Carlos Carvalhal's men took a 2-0 lead into the second leg against a Seagulls side that had finished third in the regular season and had Anthony Knockaert and Lewis Dunk available for the clash at the Amex Stadium.

And while the pair were instrumental in giving Brighton a lifeline early on - as the winger crossed for Dunk to halve the deficit - Wallace's second goal over the two legs restored Wednesday's lead and would ultimately confirm that the Owls would be taking on either Hull or Derby at Wembley for a place in the Premier League.

Understandably, the fans were delighted at the prospect of their first trip to the national stadium since they lost the FA Cup final in 1993, and while the entire squad received praise for what they had achieved, it was goalkeeper Keiren Westwood that took many of the plaudits for his performance.

The Republic of Ireland international was able to keep the home side at bay despite Chris Hughton's men spending most of the first-half on top and desperately trying to turn the game around during the second-half. 

Here is how some of the Wednesday fans reacted to the display:
