Yesterdays: McGovern strikes in play-off semi final

12 May 2015


With the play-offs now in full swing, swfc.co.uk today looks back at the Owls’ League 1 play-off semi final first leg clash with Brentford at Hillsborough.

The contest took place exactly ten years ago today on Thursday 12 May 2005.

In front of over 28,000 supporters in S6, Wednesday were off to a flying start in their promotion bid via the play-offs, as Jon-Paul McGovern registered the first goal of the two-legged fixture after 11 minutes.

Wednesday took a 1-0 lead to Griffin Park, where they of course sealed their passage to the final at The Millennium Stadium with a 2-1 win.

Take a look back at McGovern’s goal below from the Owls’ YouTube channel.
