On This Day

March 28th
2013
On his way?
Steve Howard celebrates a goal for Sheffield Wednesday. The big striker had joined the Owls on loan on this day in 2013 after a disappointing first season back at the Vic. The loan spell went well, and Howard hoped to make the move back up the divisions a permanent one, but nothing materialised and he was back at the Vic when the loan spell ended.
