“Respect palpable” “A grizzly bear on the loose” Ratings as Sheffield Wednesday break Derby County hearts

The sun shone. Michael Smith went to 20 goals for the season. The Owls won. And most importantly - nobody got injured.

It’s Peterborough United, then. Strap in!

Derby threw the lot at Wednesday who held firm thanks to committed defending and a stellar performance between the sticks from Cam Dawson.

Here are our ratings from a very satisfactory sunny afternoon at S6.
