Wednesday dominated possession and had over twice as many shots as Rovers.

But the visitors battled hard in the second half and ended up grabbing an equaliser in the 60th minute through Joshua Coburn.

Bristol Rovers dug deep to pick up a crucial point away from home.

And after the match, boss Barton posted several snaps on Twitter hailing his team and their fans for the magnificent effort.

However, supporters were particularly drawn to one of Barton’s pictures showing his tactics board.

The intricate piece of paper was scrawled with various plans, positive phrases and ideas on how to get the better of Wednesday.

Barton’s main instructions on how to get the win involved a “big start” to “turn them early” and “play in their half.”

Rovers players also needed to “squeeze space” and “lock them in their half”.


Barton also added notes saying “show the world tonight”, “decide to be victorious” and “psychedelic effects.”

And with Bristol Rovers moving up to 14th in the table with their point, fans of the club went online to hail Barton’s mad tactics board.

One supporter beamed: “Great to see the tactics board and good to see ‘attack is the best form of defence’, always agreed with that.”

Another wrote: “That was pretty impressive, more than matched the Owls and kept their fans quiet.”

One declared: “I love a prop-inspired tactic board.”

Another added: “Unbelievable performance from the lads, thank you.”
