​Supporters will get us over the line in Premier League playoff - Sheffield Wednesday defender Hunt

Sheffield Wednesday defender Jack Hunt is confident that home support will help the Owls get across the line in the playoff semi-final against Huddersfield.

Both sides, who played out a goalless draw in the first leg, will face each other in the second leg at Hillsborough on Wednesday.

He said: "We fancy ourselves, definitely, and hopefully the crowd will really get behind us, intimidate Huddersfield and put them off their game.

"If you had offered us one game at the start of the season to get to the play-off final in front of our crowd, we would have taken it.

"Huddersfield are a good team who use the ball well so if you break your shape, they can exploit that."
