There were plenty of changes for the Owls as Andy Holdsworth took charge following a COVID-19 outbreak at the club, but the handful of senior players and a group of Wednesday youngsters were able to get the job done as they finally picked up a win at St James Park.
Here are the ratings from a professional SWFC display to book their place in the next round of the competition.
1. Joe Wildsmith - 7
Did well when he was called upon, looked tidy, but wasn’t actually troubled too much.

2. Ciaran Brennan - 7
Grew into the game, and was much more composed in the second half. Made some strong interventions.

3. Liam Shaw - 9
Put in another really good shift, was key at the back and took on a leadership role alongside his less experienced teammates. Ridiculous assist for the second goal. Excellent performance.

4. Ryan Galvin - 7
A very solid debut down the left side, showed glimpses of some real quality and was involved in numerous impressive defensive plays.
