Sheffield Wednesday paid an emotional tribute to the late, great Ron Springett who passed away last week, aged 80, before their match against Fulham at Hillsborough.

Afterwards, head coach Carlos Carvalhal dedicated the 3-2 victory to Springett who made 384 appearances for Wednesday between 1958 and 1967.

In the matchday programme, fellow Hillsborough hero Mel Sterland said: "He's our most capped player to play for England, which is a fantastic achievement and I would have loved to have seen him play.

"Like every Wednesdayite I've heard stories as to just how good he was but I would have loved to have seen him play myself.

"He is a legend in every sense of the word."
