The drama of ‘D-Day’ has been and gone, and although Wednesday face a continued battle to secure their future, it’s back to the bread and butter of the on-the-pitch action.

The off-the-field stuff will still make the headlines until the club have either secured a new buyer, or the unthinkable in entering administration.

But Saturday’s trip to face MK Dons in npower League One gives Wednesdayites a 90-minute respite from what has been an energy-sapping week.

Talking about the possible tactics for the weekend, the meeting points for pre-match drinks, the odds of Alan Irvine playing a player out of position….Darren Potter.

The pros and, er, cons, of Potter and indeed discussions into whether Irvine is the man for the job at S6 seem like a dream come true for most fans after the week that we’ve had.

The ability to actually discuss the on-the-field stuff after possible takeovers, court hearings and adjournments, with some national media coverage to boot, comes as a great relief.

Three points on Saturday will be big for Wednesday, especially given the possibility of going into administration, but suddenly, after the last few days, they actually don’t seem that important at all.

The fact that Wednesdayites still have a club to support, to cheer, to boo, is the important thing this week.

Cheering and supporting there will be in abundance at MK Dons this weekend, with the ‘booing’ very much taking a back seat, for this week at least.

Wednesday fans are amongst the best in the country as it is, especially away from home, but Saturday’s league trip will be something special.

Irvine and his troops can rest assured that they’ll be receiving their full backing from the visiting section on Saturday, which will be packed full of Owls fans.

Wednesday fans are looking forward to Saturday’s match as any so far this season, and rightly so, let’s hope it’s a day to remember.
