Chey Dunkley says that Sheffield Wednesday need to create a ‘hostile’ environment at Hillsborough next week.

Wednesdayites everywhere are deflated today after the catastrophic 4-0 defeat to Peterborough United on Friday night, and are staring at the now almost certain reality of another season in League One.

“Last tweet… Just make it hostile for them in reverse fixture, I know you won’t disappoint. I was thinking of coming, but my positivity will probs get me in A&E so best I support from Shropshire.”

No team has ever come from more than two goals down in the first leg of a play-off semifinal to reach the final two, and it will take something monumental for that to change when the Posh come knocking in a few days’ time.
