Some Sheffield Wednesday fans have been left to mock a statistic involving their next Championship opponents, Luton Town.
The Owls play the Hatters later tonight, days after their 1-1 draw against Barnsley at the weekend. Wednesday-related page Owls Republic posted a stat about Graeme Jones’ side, saying that they’ve won just one of their last five Championship games.
Will Wednesday beat Luton?
Luton will win it
We'll win it again
When this reached Wednesday fans, it left many of them mocking their own form before poking fun at Luton’s recent record.
We’ll set up for a solid 0 0, 4 at back 5 just in front then 1 isolated up top, bring it on Luton #swfc

You’d have thought we would have gone for 3 points against Wigan and Barnsley but we didn’t

Wednesday’s Championship form hasn’t really been too brilliant either, as they’ve won just one of their last eight league games. The Owls have drawn their last two Championship games, being held by Barnsley and Millwall.
Garry Monk’s men are 12th in the table on 44 points. They’ve scored 41 goals in the season- the 12th-best record in the division. They have let in 34 goals throughout the season and that is the sixth-best record in the Championship so far.
What do we think?
Wednesday do have a poor recent record but they should take confidence from the fact that they’ve already beaten Luton 1-0 earlier in the season. They have to go into the game knowing that they can get a good result.
