COACHES from the SAS football team watched Tranmere train last week and were guests of the club at Saturday’s match.
They saw fighting spirit from Wednesday as the Owls recovered from being a goal down and overcame another stiff challenge in their promotion mission.
But Wednesday also possessed quality, notably a sparkling second half from Ben Marshall, besides the goals from Chris Lines and Ryan Lowe which pointed the right way ahead.
“Sign him up, sign up,” chanted fans in a sell-out away following of 2,000 as the winger was taken off near the end.
Marshall’s dribbling and crossing were major factors in the team’s resurgence after half time. He also contributed to Lines’ volleyed equaliser with a long throw, and it was his cross that led to Lowe nodding home the winner.
Part of Wednesday’s mission now must be to try to keep the Stoke youngster – preferably on a full deal in January.
Marshall had a quiet time in a scrappy first half. But, as Megson observed: “Ben is a good player. His second-half performance was terrific.”
