Darren Moore will be watching from home once again as he recovers from Coronavirus-related complications, and the thoughts of everyone at The Star continue to go out to him as he works his way back to health.

Wednesday, meanwhile, need to get their acts together if they’re to keep their already slim chances of survival alive. If they lose tonight and Derby County win, then they’re officially down.

We’ll be here for the blow-by-blow at Hillsborough.

  • A defeat for SWFC and a Derby County win would relegate the Owls
  • They drew 1-1 with Bristol City last time out
  • Darren Moore will still be unavailable

JS on performance and goal

Delighted with them... They were disciplined, scored a good goal against a good team. They’ve got good quality, so I’m really pleased.

We kept creating, and we knew one would fall for us. Luckily tonight, one goal was enough.

We keep saying about being positive, on and off the ball.

The final whistle goes! Wednesday win.

This could be a MASSIVE win for Wednesday. Derby lose 3-0, and the gap is closed to four.

Big Pelupessy tackle there.

Four minutes added. Four minutes to hold on.

Borner does go off, Urhoghide comes on for him.

Screams of ‘GET OUT ‘ from the Wednesday stopper.

Borner is down, looks like it may be cramps. Urhoghide has been warming up for a while now - not long left at all.

Derby’s goal difference taking a hit tonight.

The German gets on the end of a cross, cracks it with his left, but it’s saved. Still feels like Wednesday need another one. 1-0 is always risky - especially with SWFC.

ADAM REACH SLIDE TACKLE ALERT

It doesn’t happen often, but he busted a gut there. Gave a foul away, but it was very unlucky.

Moments after Wednesday were dallying about in the Blackburn box, the visitors broke quickly and Buckley got on the end of a ball in the box. If he put it either side of Westwood it was 1-1, luckily he didn’t. Saved.
