Friends and family of a lifelong Sheffield Wednesday fan who died of cancer earlier this week are calling for there to be a round of applause in his honour at Wembley.

Family of Terry ‘Tets’ Robinson, who had a ticket for the play-off final, want fans to clap at the 56th minute of Saturday’s match.

Terry was 56 when he died and had only been diagnosed 13 weeks ago.
