Port Vale 1-2 Sheffield Wednesday: Watch Fisayo Dele-Bashiru's powerful Owls winner
Sheffield Wednesday take on Port Vale this evening in their final preseason friendly of the summer...
Wednesday make the trip to Vale Park as Darren Moore gets one last chance to try out any formations or combinations that he might want to experiment with before competitive football returns this coming weekend, and there’s the potential for three new signings to get their first runouts since signing for the club.
Jack Hunt, who re-joined the Owls last week, as well as loan signings, Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Lewis Wing, could all possibly feature in this evening’s encounter, and fans will be eager to see how Moore sets up ahead of the visit of Huddersfield Town on Sunday.

Dele-Bashiru the match-winner as Wednesday end their preseason with a win over Port Vale... Just about deserved in the end, but the hosts made a real game of it.
Plenty of drama there...
Indirect freekick given against Wildsmith in the Wednesday box. Then the wall gets moved back. But Luongo throws himself into the block to keep Wednesday in front. Good defending.
Not long to go...
Brennan very, very close to making it three, but Covolan pulls off a brilliant save to keep Vale in it. Wednesday camped in the opposition half right now.
A really well-worked goal from the Owls, who are back in front via Dele-Bashiru, who rifled home from close range after a nice little backheel assist from Adedoyin. Emphatic!
It’s all slowed down a bit...
Not too much happening now, to be honest. The changes have led to a drop in intensity, and the only people bringing any real excitement to proceedings now are the loud Wednesdayites over the left of me.
Galvin and Brennan just came on.
More changes now...
Hagan, Wildsmith and Hunt come on as Adeniran, Peacock-Farrell and Shodipo call it a day.
A few giggles...
Chants of ‘he fell over’ as the ref stumbles on the edge of the Wednesday box and ends up on his backside. Adedoyin has a little chuckle to himself.
A few changes..
Dele-Bashiru, Brown and Dunkley come on - Hutch, Hunt and Wing make way.
