  • It’s also transfer deadline day
  • The Owls face the youngsters from Tyneside
  • Moore is expected to ring the changes

Easy breezy, really...

Wednesday were in cruise-control really, as they should be against such a young Newcastle side.

But they still got the job done in a professional manner and approached the game with the right attitude. Sow, Johnson and Palmer with the goals.

That’s a wrap for tonight. Thanks for tuning in.

Just a couple of minutes left here

Langley drops the cross and FDB manages to get onto the end of the dropped ball... His shot is blocked though.

Hunt booked

And it’s Palmer who pops up again! He brought it down very nicely and rifled an effort at goal - sadly it crashes the top of the crossbar and heads over. So close to being four.

On comes Hunt for Iorfa.

Wilson fires over after some nice work down the right for the Toon. A bit of a wake-up for Wednesday, that.

Adeniran gets a standing ovation as Byers heads into the fray.

And now it’s three!

An unlikely goalscorer as Palmer calmly slots past Langley... It did hit both posts on the way in though!
