Sheffield Wednesday: Player ratings as Owls bag late win over Ipswich Town

Sheffield Wednesday earned their first three points of the Steve Bruce era with a 1-0 win over Ipswich Town thanks to a late Lucas Joao winner.

Here's how we rated the Owls players...

Saw a few shots go wide of his post, but was relatively untested by anything on target. Got down low to smother Ipswich's best chance from a corner.

1. Keiren Westwood - 7

A good showing from the right-back. Limited Ipswich so they had to advance up the middle rather than use their width. Was nearly caught out of position late in the second half.

2. Liam Palmer - 7

The Owls captain put in a strong display and was never really tested by a weak Ipswich offensive line. Ultimately kept the opposition at bay and looked comfortable in a defensive pairing with Hector.

3. Tom Lees - 7

Solid at the back as he returned to the starting line up. Came away with the ball cleanly every time as Ipswich applied pressure in the second half.
