Owls equal unbeaten club record

20 February 2023

Wednesday regained top spot in the division on Saturday with a 5-2 win over MK Dons at Hillsborough.

The victory also had further significance as it meant the Owls have now equalled another long-standing club record, hot on the heels of the clean sheet milestone recently achieved.

For the first time since the 1960/61 season, Wednesday have extended an unbeaten run to a huge 19 games.

Back in the 1960/61 campaign when the Owls finished second in the old First Division behind Tottenham, Harry Catterick’s side remained undefeated from 10 December 1960 until 17 April 1961.


The impressive run began with a thrilling 5-4 win over Blackburn with Bobby Craig (2) and Bobby Lodge (2) on the scoresheet and finished with a 2-2 draw at home to Leicester - John Fantham and Derek Wilkinson on target.

A 2-1 defeat away at Spurs ended the incredible unbeaten sequence on 17 April.

Fast forward all the way to the current season and Darren Moore’s side have now equalled that record, going 19 games without defeat in League One.


The narrow 2-1 reverse at Plymouth on 4 October was the last time Wednesday left a league contest empty-handed.

It was a tough defeat to take in the last minute at Home Park but Moore’s men have since responded in a terrific manner and the current run of resilience is unrivalled across all four divisions.

The fine stretch of form, comprising 13 wins and six draws, has catapulted the Owls to the top of League One.

Keep it going, Wednesday!
