With the Championship football season heading to a frantic finale, fans are ramping up their support for Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday.

Owls’ fan Paul “Tango” Gregory is an easily recognisable figure on the terraces – but the Blades have their own big lads shouting them on, as our picture illustrates.

He is Tony Hill, a season ticket holder for the past 32 years. Tony has missed just seven games in the past five seasons and takes his father with him to all the games

Both these supporters will doubtless be willing their teams on this coming weekend, Wednesday are at Preston North End and United host Ipswich Town.
