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.

Sheffield Wednesday v Bolton Wanderers LIVE: Updates from Hillsborough

..Dunkley can’t quite get there.

59’ - Good work, Pato

He twists and turns and earns a free-kick, that Bannan will swing in..

55’ - Regroup needed

A couple of hairy moments in their own half and Wednesday are just settling into this system change.

A shot from Brown there. Not great. Still 0-0.

48’ - How have they settled?

Ask us in a bit. Scrappy stuff from Wednesday so far.

Changes at the break - and back to a 4-2-3-1..

Adeniran on for Gibson, Dunkley for Hutchinson.

Wildsmith - 7

Palmer - 6

Iorfa - 6

Gibson - 7

Hunt - 6

Paterson - 6

Hutchinson - 6

Bannan - 8

Brown - 6

Berahino - 7

Gregory - 7

Berahino pickpocketed Jones at the byline and drove inside, choosing to shoot instead of passing to Gregory... CLOSE. It shaves the outside of the post and goes behind.

Good work on the left from Berahino gives Bannan half a yard and he swings in a great cross for Gregory.. who forces a fine save from Dixon.

The closest they’ve come so far.
