It's all over - thankfully!

82 mins: Brentford go nap. Tariq Fosu with his first goal for the club. What a day.

Another chastening afternoon for the Owls. Garry Monk's team selection came under fire before kick off and after the dismal Derby defeat last time out in the league, it has got even worse today. Form since the Leeds win has been appalling and something needs to change. 

Can we just call it a day now?

65 mins: Steven Fletcher is substituted, Kadeem Harris replaces him. That's all the subs used by Monk

The game has settled down at the start to this half. Elsewhere, Leeds have gone 2-0 up. Reading have equalised at Birmingham. Owls down to 13th as things stand.
