And the goals weren't bad either. Palmer's first came at the end of a superb build-up, in which he too was involved, with the midfielder slotting home from 12 yards.

The second was a great finish, a deft header into the bottom corner and the treble was completed when Palmer knocked in from close range after a run down the right from David Hirst.

Wednesday would do on to win the game 4-1 with John Sheridan scoring the other for the Owls and Dennis Bailey on target for QPR but the day belonged to Palmer.
