Inside Your Matchday Programme: Sheffield Wednesday

Get a look inside this weekend's edition of the programme as Wednesday visit Griffin Park for the final time

6 March 2020

With only six games to go at home before the end of the regular season, Brentford host Sheffield Wednesday looking to overturn a 2-1 defeat on the road in December. This week's programme cover takes inspiration from the 2004/05 season.

"Rumours of a 12-point penalty have so far proved unfounded, but if, for argument’s sake, that were to be imposed ahead of this weekend’s action, Garry Monk’s men would replace Middlesbrough in the bottom three and find themselves three points from safety."

Dan Long brings us up to speed with the ongoing situation at Hillsborough in this week's edition of Story So Far.

"I missed our trip to Hillsborough because of a sickness bug earlier this season but am looking forward to getting into action here today. With 10 games to go, we have targets to hit and that starts today in front of a sell-out crowd."

Henrik Dalsgaard writes about the month of February and then looks ahead to this weekend's test in his latest From The Field player programme notes.

"For months afterwards I used to pay to go in and out multiple times at every home match to try to get more money in!"

My Brentford Story this week turns to lifelong fan David Brassington, who talks about watching The Bees rise from financial trouble to the beautiful football on display today.

Cover Story looks at the inspiration behind this weekend's cover design as Greville Waterman tells the story of the 2004/05 season, in which Brentford went all the way to the play-offs under Martin Allen.

This week's Park Life sees fan columnist Nick Bruzon dig into Cardiff City's claims that Phil Collins is a Bees fan: "scratch below the surface and a different story emerges."

The Last Word once again sees former Bee Ben Burgess address the latest football developments: "It doesn’t take years of research to work out that a heavy piece of leather landing on your head from 30 metres in the sky is going to have some sort of detrimental impact on your brain."


Also inside: Julian Jeanvier is this week's pull-out poster, Away Fan Q&A introduces us to Wednesday fan Natalie Dean, there are 12 pages of visitor content to get to know The Owls throughout their recent outings, plus Rob Jex gives us another Brentford history lesson with Fixture in Focus going back to the play-off semi-finals over a decade ago.
