They've won 11 out of the last 14 games in SL Clarke or Carney said.
It's a Thursday night game with work and school tomorrow and it was live on SKY tv.
Maybe those are some of the reasons fans didn't turn up.

Tell you what, I'd wait for tomorrow's crowd before starting a thread like this.

The crowds in the playoffs were a disaster waiting to happen with the potential need to pay for tickets 3-4 weeks running. Add Thursday to the mix and you get what you saw tonight.

I wasn't there. Can't make Thursday games because of childcare. On the weekend I could have sorted something.

There are two games this week, they should have both been on the weekend.

Anyway, hope you win the GF to shut Saints up.

It'll be followed up by a poor crowd at our place tomorrow no doubt and it’s a real worry for the game as a whole.

Black eye for the sport; focus shouldn't just be on Wire. An important playoff game with a poor crowd at one of the biggest clubs in the English game clearly highlights a problem which must be resolved.
If things don't improve then the powers that be are failing the game through the current implemented structure.

We can poke fun at Wire for this; but personally it makes me sad. I wanna see our game thrive; not this.
