Sheffield Wednesday have advanced to the play-off final at Wembley after a 1-1 draw with Brighton, for whom Richie Towell remained on the bench throughout. Wednesday survived a Brighton onslaught, particularly in the first-half, but were consistently quelled by Irish goalkeeper Keiren Westwood, who continued his fine form this season.

Westwood's brilliance was so blatant, he avoided what we have discovered to be Glenn Whelan syndrome. Whelan is one of a select band of footballers with a surreptitious repeated consonant in his name. Others include Garry Monk and Sami Hyypia. Whelan gets a lot of flak from supporters and commentators alike, despite the fact he has been an ever-present in the Stoke and Irish midfield for almost a decade.

Whelan apologists point to the fact that the excels at the grubby and elements of the game in midfield; that his best work goes unnoticed.
