“Glasgow street fighter” “Left him like a crisp packet” Player ratings as Sheffield Wednesday win fierce Portsmouth battle

Can’t stop, won’t stop - once again every sinew of Sheffield Wednesday’s stand-and-fight mentality was needed at Portsmouth in a fierce battle on the south coast. And once again they came through.

It was a monstrous battle between two big clubs and in something of a caldron at Fratton Park they stood up tall, producing a well thought-out and muscling effort against a side building towards automatic promotion aspirations next season.

A clinical route-one goal early doors set them up for what followed and once again one goal was all that was needed.

This Wednesday side is a menace; scrapping, balling, scratching and clawing their way towards half a year unbeaten.

Have some ratings as the Owls took another step towards a return to the Championship.
