Sheffield Wednesday: Player ratings from theÂ 1-0 win over Bolton Wanderers
Sheffield Wednesday sealed a much-needed and long-awaited win on Tuesday night. Here are our player ratings.
Cameron DawsonÂ Â Â Â 6
Had to be alert to keep out Ameobi's rasping effort in the first half. Will be delighted to finally get first clean sheet at S6.
Ash BakerÂ Â Â Â Â 6
Young full-back coped pretty well against the more experienced Yanic Wildschut. Again struggled going forward.
Michael HectorÂ Â Â Â 6
Much more composed after Saturday's error-prone performance against Derby. Partnered Lees well at the back.
Jordan ThornileyÂ Â Â Â Â 7
Returned to the side and was superb at full-back. More than played his part in the much-needed shut-out.
Tom LeesÂ Â Â Â 7
Took his goal well as he outjumped his man and glanced home his second of the campaign. Impressive showing.
Matt PenneyÂ Â Â Â 5
Struggled to impose himself on the contest and was negative with some of his passing. Sacrificed at the break.
Barry BannanÂ Â Â Â Â 6
Had a shaky start and misplaced a few passes which is unlike the Scot. Was back to his usual self after the restart.
Adam ReachÂ Â Â Â Â 6

Played some loose balls in the first half but like most Wednesday players, upped his performance after the interval.Â
Joey PelupessyÂ Â Â Â Â Â 7
Possibly his best outing in a Wednesday shirt. Put his foot in when needed to and set up Lees for the goal.
Marco MatiasÂ Â Â Â Â Â 6
Got better as the game went on. Showed good skill and some slick passes to help the Owls in the final third.Â
Steven FletcherÂ Â Â Â 5
Lasted 35 minutes before going off with what can only assume was injury-related. Had a half-chance to open scoring but it was deflected for a corner.
Atdhe Nuhiu (For Fletcher, 35)Â Â Â Â Â 5
Held the ball up when he had to but was limited in terms of chances.
Fernando Forestieri (For Penney, 46)Â Â Â Â 6
Made Owls tick when he was introduced after the restart. Added a much-needed threat in the final third.
Lucas Joao (For Matias, 85)Â Â Â 5
The Portuguese almost scored with his first touch but blazed an effort over the bar.
