Dom Howson has tweeted about Sheffield Wednesday’s win over Brighton in the first leg of the 2016 Championship play-off semi-finals.
Owls fans are reliving the scenes at Hillsborough after Wednesday fired two past the Seagulls without reply to mark their victory on the first leg of the tie.
Ross Wallace sent his side ahead after a strike from 25-yards out in the first half, with Kieran Lee putting the game to bed to give Sheffield Wednesday a two-goal cushion ahead of the reverse fixture (via BBC Sport).
Is Garry Monk the right man for Sheffield Wednesday?
The second leg saw the Owls secure a 3-1 win overall, after drawing 1-1 at the AMEX. Unfortunately for Wednesday, Hull pipped them to the final promotion spot after nudging the result in their favour through a 1-0 victory at Wembley (via BBC Sport).
Loads of Wednesdayites have flocked to Howson’s tweet to relive the magic of the semi-final glory. One fan however, who is seemingly missing football, has responded ‘And I didnt think I could feel any worse’. Read more of the best replies here:

That night showed how influential the Old Lady can be when she is rocking, especially under lights

The atmosphere was immense that night , up there with the LC semi final in 1991 when everyone realised we were going to Wembley

Spine tingling atmosphere. On par with if not better than Wycombe game. Never experienced anything like it at a football game.
