The Owls, who made three changes to their side and offered first league starts of the season to Massimo Luongo and Joey Pelupessy, won out thanks to Luongo’s first Wednesday goal.
But who were the stars and who was sluggish? Let’s take a look at our player ratings from Hillsborough.
1. Keiren Westwood - 7
Produced two saves of real quality - the one from the head of Moore effectively earned the Owls two points. Communicated well - at times in the first half the atmosphere was so subdued you could hear him clearly. Photo: Nathan Stirk
2. Liam Palmer - 7
Solid as ever at the back and was noticeably more lively going forward thanks in no small part to the liberating presence of Pelupessy. Photo: Steve Ellis
3. Julian Borner - 7
A clean sheet is just desserts for Borner, who was noticeably competent once again, both in the air and on the deck. Whether his partnership with Dominic Iorfa is broken by the return of Tom Lees remains to be seen. Photo: Steve Ellis
4. Dominic Iorfa - 7
Another solid showing from the centre-half, who dovetailed nicely with Borner yet again. His pace covered rare flick-ons from Wigan in a dominant display. Photo: Nathan Stirk
