Sheffield Wednesday eye swoop for ex-Serie A midfielder, Derby County target Premier League defender

Sheffield Wednesday finally put a stop to their harrowing seven-match losing streak on Wednesday evening, as Darren Moore picked up his first point as Owls manager when his side drew 1-1 with Huddersfield Town at Hillsborough.

However, while sides in the bottom half of the table generally struggled to earn any points, Birmingham City secured a huge win under their new boss Lee Bowyer, meaning Wednesday now need to make up a cavernous nine-point gap on the Blues to avoid relegation.

Speaking after the match, Moore discussed Callum Paterson's own-goal that saw the Owls throw away their slim half-time lead, and claimed: “It was a bizarre way to concede. If you look at the way we defended all night, we were pretty solid really apart from a couple of long range efforts when they were starting to get a bit desperate and were running out of one or two ideas.

“It was about us doing our jobs, but losing Sam (Hutchinson, to injury) at the time proved critical. He’s a solid citizen in there, he’s an organiser and he sees it. It’s something to work from in terms of the point.”

The Owls face another tricky test this weekend, when they travel to take on high-flying Barnsley, who have won eight of their last nine matches, and continue their unprecedented push for the play-offs.
