A second half brace from striker Steven Fletcher was enough to secure Wednesday all three points after they trailed 1-0 at the break. Here’s how Dom rated each player.
Had no chance with Mbuemo's header inside the six-yard box. Was not overly worked but dived well to save Norgaard's second half effort. Is growing in stature with every passing match.
Brentford got plenty of joy down his flank, particularly in the first half. Was his job to pick Mbuemo up from the corner for the Bees 29th minute opener. Offered little offensively.(Photo by Nigel Roddis/Getty Images)

There were a few misplaced passes from the skipper but he defended solidly as the Owls limited a well-drilled Bees outfit to few sights at goal. He is real calming influence at the back.
Produced a great last-ditch interception to prevent the lively Benrahma from breaking clear in the first period. The November player of the month winner stuck manfully to his task against a mobile, dangerous forward line.
A hard-working showing from the left-back. Won his fair share of tackles and tried to get forward at every available opportunity. Barely received any protection from Harris. Whipped in a great cross for Fletcher's chance.
Brought in to replace the injured Fernando Forestieri, the Newcastle United loanee struggled to make an impact. Gave the ball away on countless occasions and did not stick to his defensive duties.
Industrious display from the holding midfielder. Kept things ticking over in the centre and made several important challenges to break up Brentford's forward forays. His contribution was vital to the Owls cause.
Not an afternoon the little Scot will look fondly back on. Bannan was stationed too deep and his passing radar let him down at times. But he showed his set piece prowess, floating in a glorious free kick for Fletcher's headed chance.
A tale of two halves for the wide man. Was off the pace in the first but electric in the second. Harris ran the Bees ragged and was the architect of the Owls' winner, whipping in the cross for Fletcher's second.
Bagged two goals to take his tally to 10 for the season. Could have had a hatful in the second half if he had brought his shooting boots. There's no disputing that he is Wednesday's main man.
Brentford's back four comfortably dealt with the Kosovo international. Nuhiu put himself about but had to feed off scraps in a one-sided opening 45 minutes. Subbed off at half-time
The Owls' record-buy cleverly worked the channels and took some of the burden off Fletcher after replacing Nuhiu in attack.
Gave Wednesday extra energy on the right. Still searching to find his best form, but he worked tirelessly offensively and defensively.
