History of the Sheffield Wednesday v Colchester United fixture

Colchester U. travel to take on Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 4 games played, U's have recorded 1 wins, and Sheff. Wed. have come away with 2 victories.

The last time the two teams met at Sheff. Wed. was amazingly over twenty years ago, in February 1980, with Sheff. Wed. running out comfortable 3 - 0 winners in a Third Division match.
