WEDNESDAY fans are playing their part in the club’s success, says Ben Marshall.
The winger believes that fervent backing from supporters is helping the players to produce results at Hillsborough, where Leyton Orient visit today.
Away games have seen remarkable support, with the victory at Tranmere last Saturday an example.A sell-out away section kept up a phenomenal volume of singing and chanting.
Hillsborough has become a uncomfortable
place for visiting sides, with the crowd urging on a team who have dropped only two points there this season.
“The fans really get behind the team.” says Marshall, “I remember playing for Carlisle against Sheffield Wednesday and that was in my mind; the support behind them puts you off a bit. Just being at home, it’s a lot easier for us, and away the fans make it a bit like a home game.
“When you hear the noise, it’s always ours who are making it.
“It’s down to them as well as what we do on the pitch. To hear them is fantastic.”
Marshall appreciated the “sign him up” chants from the Wednesdayites at Tranmere. “It was nice to hear.” says the man who hopes they get their wish.
“It’s been going well for me. Hopefully I can keep doing well for the team.”
Looking forward to today’s game, against a Leyton Orient outfit who are unbeaten in 10 matches, he said: “At home, we’ve not been beaten all season.
“It’s going to be a tough game, We might have a bit more than them. Hopefully we can get another victory.”
