Sheffield Wednesday have shared some footage of Lewis McGugan’s famous goal versus Preston North End via Twitter. The former midfielder scored from long-range help his side to a 3-1 victory back in the 2015/16 season

The goal came deep into stoppage time and here is how some of the club’s fans have responded to the throwback.

To kick off our EFL Championship records quiz, can you name which player has scored the highest number of goals in a single Championship season?

Do you remember Lewis McGugan's time at Sheffield Wednesday fondly?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This fan was quick to point out that England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was the man beaten from distance that day.

What do we think?

Some fans were keen to highlight what appears to be a deflection after McGugan’s strike, however in our view, it’s the audacity to try and score from that distance that makes this a special goal. McGugan made a total of 39 appearances for the Owls, scoring nine goals and providing three assists (via Transfermarkt.co.uk).

The midfielder has since retired having represented Northampton Town, Watford and Nottingham Forest as well as the South Yorkshire based club. The Championship along with all other English football competitions has been suspended until at the earliest, 30 April. With no action taking place, you can be sure to expect some more historical content from the club’s social media team in the coming weeks.
