Sheffield Wednesday climbed into the Championship play-off positions with a win over Brentford.
A brace from Steven Fletcher in the space of four minutes completed a comeback victory for the Owls at Hillsborough.
A run of two defeats in 11 games has helped elevate Garry Monk’s side into the top six, although there is an 11-point gap to the automatic promotion places.
A key player in his squad is Scotland international Barry Bannan; the midfielder has missed just one game since August; a 2-1 loss to Blackburn Rovers.
Bannan, 30, has frequently worn the captain’s armband for Wednesday, and is closing in on 200 appearances for the club.
They face a tough December fixture schedule, coming up against Derby County, Nottingham Forest, Bristol City, Stoke City and Cardiff.
After the comeback victory, Bannan posted a message on Twitter about his teammates.
Here’s how some of the fans reacted:
