Owls FT: Braga 3 Sheffield Wednesday 1

Have your say

Martin Taylor headed Sheffield Wednesday into a 18th minute lead when he got on the end of a Joe Mattock cross against Braga tonight. But the game turned on its head just before half-time.

Braga equalised after 44 minutes with a header of their own, Edinho on target. And it got worse for Wednesday when Pardo produced a sweeping finish into the top corner just before half-time.

Then in the second half Braga extended their lead in the 74th minute through Pedro when he latched on to a cross from Baiano on the right wing.

Dave Jones, the Sheffield Wednesday manager, handed starts to two trialists in this pre-season clash.

Defender Kamill Zayatte, formerly of Hull City, and Austrian winger Marcus Grossinger were given the opportunity to stake their claims for full-time contracts.

Wednesday: Kirkland; Palmer, Mattock, Prutton, Taylor, Zayatte, Grossinger, Coke, Madine, J Johnson, Helan.

Substitutes: Davies, Maguire, McCabe, Llera, Floro, Gardner, Corry, Semedo.
