Nicole Carroll: A one woman mission to make a name in football

One to watch

Although this weekend could be decisive in the Premier League, the Championship has his own excitement and tension this Sunday, when Crystal Palace go away to Sheffield Wednesday.

Defeat for Crystal Palace would see them relegated from the Championship, and facing future uncertainty. The club has already been placed in administration, and found themselves at the bottom of the Championship following a points deduction. Further relegation to League One would have further financial implications for the club, who have a highly uncertain future.

The match is as equally important for Wednesday, with defeat sending them into League one similarly. Wednesday have had their own financial problems. The match is further fuelled by comments by Wednesdays chairman, Lee Strafford, who claimed that Crystal Palace deserve to go down because of their financial mismanagement, and for taking the escape route of administration.

Palace have a fantastic away record going into Sunday’s match, with just 5 losses from 22 matches. A draw would favour the club heavily, but with a hostile Wednesday crowd, it will be far from easy. If the players feel even a drop of the Wednesday’s passion, then it might push them towards defeating the Eagles and survival in the Championship for another season.
