Classic encounter

24 May 2013


Wednesday Player is adding another classic encounter against Manchester United to the collection.

The game comes from the 1995/96 Premier League campaign at Old Trafford.

The Owls came close to taking all three points from Sir Alex Ferguson’s side. Eric Cantona gave the home side the lead after 18 minutes before Wednesday striker Mark Bright equalised on the hour.

Guy Whittingham then put the Owls in front with a bullet header past Kevin Pilkington but Cantona levelled late in the game to salvage a point for the Reds.

With the likes of David Beckham, Gary and Phil Neville, Steve Bruce and Paul Scholes in the side, it was a creditable point for Wednesday, who were ultimately left disappointed with the draw.
