Here's our player ratings...

Didn't have much to do as Wigan offered little in the way of chances, but dealt with their few advances into his area well. Provided a calm head at the back in the closing stages.
Dealt with Windass well and overlapped to create chances in wide areas. Had one hairy moment with a back pass in the second half but otherwise looked solid all afternoon.

Built on Tuesday's win at Luton with another comprehensive performance. Put in some of Wednesday's most threatening crosses from the left flank.
Wednesday look a much more solid defensive unit in recent matches and Lees put in another good showing at the back, this time with Hector as his partner.
Was in a heated battle with Wigan's Garner for most of the first half but settled in the second period and kept Will Grigg at bay once he came on for the visitors.
Brought a tenacious edge back to the Owls' midfield but didn't leave much of a mark on the game. Had a part to play in Wednesday's defensive strength.
Didn't see much of the ball in the first half but was vital in winning possession for Wednesday in the second period. Came close with a free kick and caused problems with good deliveries from corners.
Made his best contributions through link-up play, slipping Boyd through for a great chance in the second half. Otherwise had a quiet day at the office.
Started well but mainly played a supporting role to Fletcher and then Nuhiu as the game went on. Missed one of the better chances of the game as the ball got stuck under his feet.
Started well and looked threatening when drifting inside from the right, but had a quiet remainder of the game before being substituted.
The focal point for much of the Owls' creativity, linked well with the players around him and was rewarded with a second half goal before being substituted to a standing ovation.
Came on as a second half sub and injected some life into the Owls attack at a key period in the game. Showed good vision to feed Boyd who should have put the game to bed and made it 2-0.
Came on as an 80th minute sub for Fletcher who had picked up a knock and almost had an instant impact by using his strength to harass the Wigan defence.
