Dad's joy after son defies doctors to walk on pitch with Sheffield Wednesday

A father is overjoyed after seeing his son lead Sheffield Wednesday onto the pitch at the weekend despite doctors saying he would never walk.

Martin Danforth posted the video below on twitter showing the moments his 10-year-old son walked onto the Hillsborough pitch ahead of their game against Charlton.

Warnock relishing South Yorkshire derby

Rotherham United manager Neil Warnock is looking forward to a good old-fashioned derby match when the Millers travel to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

The experienced Warnock was hired last month to keep Rotherham in the Championship, and last weekend's home win against Brentford has taken them to within three points of safety.

In contrast, even though they haven't won any of their last three league matches, Wednesday are 6th in the table, and are still looking a good bet for the play-offs.

As a former Sheffield United manager and avowed Blades supporter, Warnock is expecting some stick from the Wednesday fans, but he wouldn't want it any other way.
