"There's no doubt a full away end cheering the team on will only act as a positive for us and the fans will have a big part to play."

The Owls are currently second behind Brighton, who lost 3-1 at Hillsborough last Saturday in front of a crowd of 22,044.
Derby's travelling support means the figure is sure to be beaten this afternoon.
Brighton, who entertain Hull City this evening in a TV game, boast the highest average attendance in the division of 25,579.
Wednesday's average going into the Rams game is 23,185 while Derby's is 23,169.
