Wednesday, bloody Wednesday, help Saints to unwelcome record

Yesterday saw Saints squander a golden chance to secure only their second home win of the season, a late Sheffield Wednesday leveller meaning the honours ended even.

Saints 1 - Sheffield Wednesday 1

Previously merely worrying, this result moved Saints into alarming new statistical territory as it saw them record their worst ever start to a season in terms of home form. For a large part of the match such a result looked distant as the home side dominated. However, their failure to build upon BWP's early goal cost them dear as Wednesday pressed forward in the second half. Marcus Tudgay’s late equaliser was a real sucker punch for the home support, who again left disappointed.

More encouragingly, the result stretches Saints' unbeaten spell to four matches and the side can hopefully take that mentality into the forthcoming matches against Palace and Forest.

I know it's all bleak, as a Wednesday fan I have been in your position- and worse. As long as you stay up which I am sure you will after Saturdays performance, you can keep on re-building. I sometimes think it's better in the Championship than the Premier League, as we can still actually get a top 6 finish in this league without spending £100 trillion. You'll come good soon.

I know people talk about this being our worse start to the season, but I remember a time when we were in the Premier league and we lost the first 7 games to the season, and still stayed up, at least we have had some great wins, and though in the wrong position we are not in the drop zone.

Which team will fill the third relegation spot?

Four games left. Will Saints survive?

Would you be in favour of a return for Rupert?
