Yesterdays: The Kings of Cardiff

29 May 2018

The 2004/05 campaign, of course, saw the Owls promoted to the Championship after an epic battle with Hartlepool in the play-off final at Cardiff.

Having finished fifth in League 1 and overcome Brentford over two legs in the semi final, a season’s hard work boiled down to one unforgettable final at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium…

A game that took place on this day 13 years ago!

Goals from Jon-Paul McGovern, Steve MacLean, Glenn Whelan and Drew Talbot secured victory in front of 42,000 Owls fans in the Welsh capital, thus sealing our promotion back to the Championship.

Watch those key moments again here!
