It feels like a big one today, doesn’t it? Not in terms of the points tally at this stage of the season perhaps, but for the mood around Sheffield Wednesday. A win could take them to within a point of the League One playoff places. It would be a handy boost for morale.

And Wednesday have earned three points. It wasn’t the prettiest, but it feels like an important one.

This is tense. Bolton are pushing on, Wednesday are battling hard.

Can the Owls close this one out?

Please?

Pretty please?

80’ - Big chance Bolton..

Declan John has been a threat for Bolton at left-back and his stinging cross evaded three men.

Wednesday cannot afford to concede late here.

..for a dive. No argument from him.

65’ - Yellow card Afolayan

Simulation? Looked like it. Naughty naughty..
