SHEFFIELD Wednesday fans hail Michail Antonio, after his last minute goal earned three precious points.

Chances were flowing freely and Madine nearly opened the scoring, but his header from Antonio’s throw was superbly saved by Collin.

It didn’t take long for the Owls to score though. Johnson’s strong run and shot was saved by Collin, but LINES was there to tuck the ball home on 25 minutes.

Madine could have doubled Wednesday’s lead but headed over from a right-wing cross.

Llera almost scored his fourth in four matches but couldn’t get a firm contact on a Lines free kick as Wednesday finished the half on top.

Johnson, who was having one of his typical ‘JJ’ matches made way for Treacy on 57 minutes. The winger had worked hard but hadn’t been able to provide quality in the final third.

Carlisle were much improved in the first 15 minutes of the second half, with Owls unable to string passes together.The Owls couldn’t force their way through for a second as Lines’s excellent cross couldn’t be finished off by either Madine or Llera.

Wednesday were punished on 81 minutes when a free kick was charged down by the wall by BERRETT slammed a left foot shot low to Bywater’s left hand.

Ranger tried an acrobatic over-head kick from a Treacy cross and then the winger drilled a cross behind Wednesday’s strikers.

With six minutes of injury time Wednesday continued to push and ANTONIO slammed home the winner in the final seconds.
