THINGS are looking up at Hillsborough.

Four wins out of four on home soil mean Sheffield Wednesday are just four points off neighbours and league leaders Sheffield United.

Confidence is rising on the pitch and in the stands. Supporters are starting to believe Gary Megson’s side can mix it with the teams in the upper echelons of the division.

A Wednesday fan, on thestar.co.uk, said: “The MK Dons are the best side I have seen against us this year; they passed the ball around nicely, because we stood a yard too much off them and dropped back to deep. They kept the ball with out hurting us. Second half we took the game to them and looked a lot better and took our chances. Onwards and upwards. Keep the faith.”

Another Owls fan, nottsowl, gave us this view: “JJ did not play well; he needs to pass to his players but on form he’s brilliant and sign Ben Marshall.

“So glad Gary Madine is back on form. We showed them too much respect in the 1st half and what a goal from our Worksop lad Palmer. COME ON YOU OWLS.”

It was Ched Evans who stole the show on the red side of the city as the Welsh international struck a late equaliser against 10-man Scunthorpe to maintain their unbeaten run under Danny Wilson.

Snakebite commented: “Not that good today but still undefeated and top of the league.”

crystalpeaksman added on our site: “Good result. I said Evans will score plenty and he will; top of the table will do for me.”

DexterMorgan remarked: “17 out of 21 and still smiling!”

Meanwhile, Doncaster Rovers supporters have expressed their concern over the team’s 18-match winless run. One fan, on Doncaster Footymad, says boss Sean O’Driscoll should be axed.

“Rovers have become slow, boring and predictable just like one of SOD’s press conferences,” said EastYorksRover. “I would say get rid tomorrow and freshen things up but I couldn’t even think of someone to replace him with of any standing

“It’s time for a new approach fresh start and some one who get liven up and get the best out of all the players.”

Ashes_to_Glory has defended O’Driscoll and feels he is still the right man to rectify their form: “I think SOD has done well to keep us up thus far, and could still keep us up. He’s pulled it around before. Even if we went down.”
