Players, officials and both sets of supporters joined in an emotional standing ovation in a minute’s applause ahead of the match.

One of hundreds of touching tributes came from Wednesday manager Darren Moore, who spoke glowingly on Megson’s contribution to the club when news of his passing was confirmed.

Moore said: “With his son, Gary, my former manager - and somebody I’m very much in touch with - there’s always been a connection with the family.

“It’s sad news, real sad news about a club legend. Heartfelt condolences on behalf of myself and everyone at the football club, because he was a true legend and a wonderful servant.”
