This is a potential blow for Bannan and Wednesday

Hobbling Barry Bannan a genuine Sheffield Wednesday injury concern after Sunderland rout

As Darren Moore completed his post-match press duties after Sheffield Wednesday’s handsome 3-0 win over Sunderland on Tuesday evening, he paused for a moment having felt a hand on his shoulder.

Alex Miller’s ratings are rising

Bailey Peacock-Farrell – 7

Made a vital save towards the end of the first half to keep Wednesday’s two-goal lead intact and did well with aerial balls on an otherwise quiet evening. Showed nous to slow things down when needed, too.

Marvin Johnson – 7

Stationed on the left of a back three again, Johnson stuck to his job well and pushed the ball about nicely. Sunderland got a bit of joy in the early stages down his side, but he came back into things well.

Chey Dunkley – 8

Produced a classy goal-saving block on 28 minutes to deny Stewart. Followed up his ‘star man’ effort at Cheltenham with another fine display. Seems to be a real leader at the back and has taken this opportunity to put his stamp on the team excellently.

Who was 'waspish; and who was 'the difference'? Ratings in Owls’ 3-0 rout of Sunderland

Sheffield Wednesday produced a confident, front-foot performance to down fellow promotion hopefuls Sunderland on what many will hope was a season-shifting evening at Hillsborough.

Lee Johnson’s take on the match is... something

The Sunderland boss doesn’t seem to be worrying too much, despite shipping eight goals in a week in South Yorkshire after their hammering by Rotherham at the weekend...

“I didn’t feel today that we were ever out of the game. I felt like we were the better side in between the boxes”

“We felt that we’d get chances to score, but the most pleasing thing for me was the work off the ball - I thought that was excellent tonight.”

Darren Moore delighted with ‘complete’ performance from Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday manager, Darren Moore, says he was delighted for the supporters who turned saw a ‘more complete’ Owls performance against Sunderland.

Just what the Owls needed

For the most part they looked organised, composed, and – most importantly – clinical. After the third they were in cruise control, and the Mackems could sense it too as a number of them made for the car park and the long drive back up to the North East.

The game ebbed and flowed, but at 3-0 the Owls were well in control. There were a couple of scrambles in the Wednesday box, and Kamberi almost doubled his tally, but Gregory’s goal gave the hosts the sort of cushion that they’ve needed in so many games previously.

Reaction and analysis to come.

We were pleased with him. He worked in behind well and broke their lines with his runs.

His link up play was good today, a constant threat.

Baz is the one. Theo came off as he was cramping up and Greggers was tiring up.

I felt the players responded weeks ago. We had 48 hours for Bolton. Since then, the performances have got stronger and stronger.

I will say, I won’t stay with the three, some weeks I will go with a four. We’ll look at the teams coming up.

We want to bring an energy and bring it to the fans. We have high expectations, we know that. There’s fire in my belly to bring that. We keep building.
