only three of our local teams were in action this weekend with the biggest winners, both literally and figuratively, being Wednesday after defeats for both Barnsley and Chesterfield.

ONLY three of our local teams were in action this weekend with the biggest winners, both literally and figuratively, being Wednesday after defeats for both Barnsley and Chesterfield.

The message boards were still lively with Feet like Lightning on thestar.co.uk looking forward to the rest of the season: “League One is going to be a brilliant division to watch come the end of the season. Proper contest, this is.”

Silverblade gave rare praise from the other side of the city: “Yep have to give it to you on this one, you pulled it out of the hat and won ugly, but yep well done, that’s the way to it. A win is a win, glad Huddersfield and MK Dons drew did us both a favour.”

Several Owls fans were pleased to have just got the win no matter the performances. Goaless draw lover (0v0) said: “First half we may have over passed the ball and tried to walk it into the net. JJ’s goal was brilliant and well done Wednesday for winning the game.”

Lowflyer added: “Well a win’s a win I suppose and we are now in automatic promotion contention-- but United are still the elephant in the room.”

While at the edge warned: “We was poor all game but it’s the three points that count still don’t think Madine and O’Grady can play together the game changed when Lowe came on.”

And 1graybags turned a negative into a substantial positive: “A performance like that will get punished in the Championship.”

On barnsley-mad.co.uk Reds fans were discussing the merits of boss Keith Hill and the performance at Watford.

WathRed said: “I was very pessimistic when we appointed Hill however he has proven to be a very good manager. We haven’t been ‘full of goals’ all season, it was a problem he solved. We have lacked creativity and legs in midfield recently and he has brought in Tonge and Smith. I have faith in him and you only want players at the club who want to be there.”

Acido was disappointed in the apparent surrender at Vicarage Road: “This is what I find most unacceptable about us. It’s not the fact that we’re inconsistent and keep losing immediately after winning (although that is terribly frustrating).

“I’m more angry to hear that we’re losing games like this by just not turning up at all and treating it like a part time training session. If we’re going to lose to struggling teams like Millwall and Watford then I’d rather we lost by giving it a go.”
