  • Description

    SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY DESERVED THEIR 1-0 OVER THE LONDON CLUB, FULHAM TODAY (SATURDAY). ALTHOUGH THE FULHAM DEFENCE IMPROVED TO MATCH THE SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY ATTACK IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE GAME, THE FIRST HALF WAS ALL SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY, AND IF THEY'D TAKEN THEIR CHANCES THE HOME CROWD MIGHT HAVE SEEN A BIGGER WINNING MARGIN.

    SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY'S CENTRE-FORWARD MCCALLIOG HIT THE FULHAM-POST IN THE EARLY PART OF THE GAME AND HIS TEAM FORCED SEVERAL CORNERS, BUT FULHAM'S DEFENCE KEPT THEM OUT UNTIL THE 22ND MINUTE WHEN INSIDE-FORWARD FORD DRIBBLED THE BALL ROUND GOALKEEPER MACEDO.

    THIS WAS ONE OF THE FEW FAULTS IN THE FULHAM DEFENCE, THEIR FAILURE WAS IN ATTACK, RELYING ALMOST ENTIRELY ON THE SPEED OF WINGER LEGGAT AND DYSON. ALL THE PROMPTING OF HAYNES, THE CAPTAIN, COULD NOT BRING ANY SUCCESSFUL COMBINATION TO THE FULHAM ATTACK. WITH WORLD CUP FEVER IN ENGLAND AND THE POOR SHOWING OF RECENT ENGLISH SIDES, FOOTBALL CIRCLES ARE TALKING OF HAYNES RETURNING TO THE ENGLISH TEAM.

    THE RESULT OF THE MATCH PUTS SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY EIGHT PLACES FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE FIRST DIVISION TABLE AND FULHAM FOUR FROM BOTTOM. LIVERPOOL AND BURNLEY SHARE THE LEAD.
