Steven Fletcher can fire Wednesday into late play-off contention

The target man is bang in the goals at the moment and the Owls will be pinning their hopes on his form.

Sheffield Wednesday made it eight games without a defeat last night after beating Brentford 2-0 at Hillsborough.

Steven Fletcher grabbed both the goals to offer boss Steve Bruce a timely reminder of the quality he offers.

Fletcher and the Wednesday boss could be a match made in heaven.

The 31-year-old took his goal tally to eight for the season last night and recent form suggests that more will follow.

Fletcher has thrived off the service of Fernando Forestieri and the boss looks to have found a winning formula up top.

 

Promotion looks a tough ask at this moment in time, but Wednesday are on the rise.

The latest win has pit Wednesday just six points off the top-six and Bristol City and Derby have dropped points this week.

There is typically one team who comes up on the rails to secure a play-off berth, so why not Wednesday?

A Fletcher bang in form is a frightening proposition for opposing defenders and that bodes well.

All Wednesday can do is keep winning and Bruce has been there and seen it all in the Championship.

With Fletcher spearheading their attack, you wouldn’t back against them maintaining their solid form of late.
