Partly down to a large following by Sheffield then, but still a big positive none the less! Some very good attendances so far this season, hope that continues! Keep doing our job of supporting the team and hopefully they'll keep delivering the results...

Fans were magic against Lincoln, lets be the 12th man again

Confident of a good win in front of a 20000 + crowd. COYB.

Win here, then it's a home match with rock bottom Donny. Things will be looking brighter.

Edmundo added 12:13 - Sep 23
Not a match to be taken for granted. Tough as it comes.

TimmyH added 12:23 - Sep 23
Just imagine what attendances we'd have if we introduced the fans to wins at PR.

BtreeBlueBlood added 12:46 - Sep 23
A draw wouldn’t be a bad result especially if we can beat donny! 7 out of 9pts

The biggest thing is that we support this team. If we aren’t playing well we need to be the 12th man. Ok 1 win hasn’t won us the league, but I would rather watch this style of football and see this team grow into what will be a very good and confident team. The best will come next season, I still fancy us to, at least, reach the Playoffs. If we get the momentum right there will be no stopping Paul Cook and Our NEW TEAM. COYB’s.

My first game for five years . Hope I'm not disappointed !!!

Tough game against a Championship squad of players - Barry Bannon is a very dangerous player & Saido Berahino was as unexpected a signing for a League 1 side as any of ours.
A win would be great, to follow on from the Lincoln result, but a draw where we've played well & showed our progress as a team, both in defending & attacking, wouldn't be the worst thing to happen.

Surprised we only gave them 2000 tickets hopefully they will give us more for the return game at Hillsborough.

Great turn out again, let the good times roll. Hopefully the clueless negative Nigel’s stay at home seeing as it’s a 50/50

Town fans = the most resilient fans around .

Owls fans are brilliant, so the Bobby Robson will need to be in full voice to counteract this. Don't let me down!

atty added 15:15 - Sep 23
Borough blue- like the massive Morecombe away support to get that 21,037! Could be 23,000 on Saturday. Anyway Town fans doing us proud so far this season, keeping the faith despite a crap start to the season.

TimmyH added 16:00 - Sep 23
Wednesday are on a mini slump losing to Morecambe, Plymouth (heavily) and being held at home by Shrewsbury...anybody is beatable in this league on their day. I say shoot for the stars - keep Bannan quiet and a win! I'm guessing around 22,000 attendance.

Class_of_81 - Spot on!

RegencyBlue added 16:46 - Sep 23
Crowds are holding up really well.

So much potential here for a successful team!

itfctim added 16:51 - Sep 23
Would be good for the atmosphere at the ground if the SAR stand got a bit more vocal, especially when the away team sell out their allocation. Time after time visiting supporters gloat in the fact that they've 'out sung' the home crowd. Come on SBR people! Find your voices, and drown them out!! COYB!

PackwoodBlue added 17:05 - Sep 23
Hope the lads can use the noise and atmosphere as a positive and don't let that get to them and heap too much pressure on themselves. COYB!

Eddie1985 added 17:47 - Sep 23
Should be a fantastic atmosphere, hopefully we can get another win that leads to a run of form we so desperately need COYB

Linkboy13 added 18:38 - Sep 23
A Draw would be a good result if we were near the top of the table but we need a run of wins now to keep those fans satisfied who are sitting on the fence.

IpswichT62OldBoy added 20:37 - Sep 23
@itfctim, Churchmans was always more quiet than the North Stand, but back in the day the away fans were in the North Stand, with a big fence between us.

Next 5 games are all winnable
