An Adam Reach brace and Steven Fletcher’s acrobatic bicycle kick put Wednesday three nil up before the break as the Owls came flying out of the blocks in a breathless first 45 minutes.

They made harder work of the second half as Swansea grew into the game and grabbed one back through Wayne Routledge, but the home side did enough to see out the win and maintain their manager’s impressive record.

Steve Bruce got his first win at Hillsborough.

It was the first of three successive home matches for the Owls, with Brentford and Sheffield United on the horizon for the Owls.
