The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

WITH two games of the reg­u­lar sea­son left, it looks as though Sheffield Wed­nes­day are head­ing into the play-offs af­ter yet an­other hard-fought win.

Owls as­sis­tant boss Lee Bullen dis­tanced him­self from the idea af­ter this lat­est gritty win, but his team – now on a five-game win­ning run – do look to have good mo­men­tum be­hind them at the most cru­cial of stage in the cam­paign.

There is still strength in depth at Car­los Car­val­hal’s dis­posal too, and that could also be a piv­otal fac­tor ahead of what prom­ises to be an­other ac­tion-packed and thrilling month or so as the fight to re­alise that Premier League dream con­tin­ues.

As for Derby, they showed glimpses of what can be built on dur­ing what is sure to be a hec­tic sum­mer for re­cently-ap­pointed boss Gary Rowett.

There is a strong nu­cleus to his squad al­ready there, but fresh faces will also be needed if they are to chal­lenge for a top-six spot next term.
