Sheffield Wednesday are set to host high flying Leeds United on Friday evening in front of the Sky Sports television cameras and Sheffield Star journalist Dom Howson has confirmed that the club are expecting a +27,000 crowd at Hillsborough for the Yorkshire derby clash.

In this day an age when you consider the economy, 27,000 isn’t too shabby in my mind, especially as the game is being given a national audience and that always affects attendance figures, even if just the floaters who make their decision later based on how their week at work has gone and whether they want to do something different and have the cash free.

With Leeds’ unexpected form under new gaffer Marcelo Bielsa and our improving form under Jos Luhukay, it should be set to be a good clash but I can understand the reactions from some to the attendance reveal as ticket prices aren’t exactly a new topic of conversation at the club.

Not the ones questioning the support though.
