Garry Monk made eight changes to the side that drew to Fulham at the weekend and in the early stages it showed before a more fluent Owls showing from the half-hour mark.
But who were the bright sparks as they crashed out of the League Cup? Let’s take a look at the player ratings from Hillsborough.
1. Cameron Dawson - 7
Made a good save to deny Calvert-Lewin a first-half hat-trick. Distribution pretty solid.

2. Moses Odubajo - 5
MIA for the first goal and shaky throughout. Bright going forward again. It's been a tough start to his Wednesday career.
3. Dominic Iorfa - 6
Left goalscorer Calvert-Lewin for the first but grew into it as the game went on. Missed a glaring headed chance at the back post.

4. Jordan Thorniley - 6
Solid if unspectacular. Seemed to develop an understanding with Iorfa after a harrowing first few minutes.
