We might not get to see a goal as majestic as Barry Bannan’s against the Dons but Owls fans will be hopeful that another victory will be on the way with just a few matches remaining in the quest to make it back into the Championship at the first time of asking.

  • OWLS XI: Peacock-Farrell, Hunt, Palmer, Storey, Mendez-Laing, Bannan, Byers, Paterson, Berahino, Gregory
  • Owls 1 Crewe 0 (Gregory pen)

A fine cross from Johnson finds Paterson unmarked at the back post and the big man misses the ball completely. Shooting practice the rest of the week, lads.

NML to Berahino, back to NML and across to the far side where Hunt fires a cross-cum-shot across goal but there’s no one there to get on the end of it and divert it in

Gregory OFF

Luongo ON

Seems an unecessarily defensive move from Moore

Storey gets on the end of a NML corner and is denied by a smart save from Richards

Crewe make their first change

Kashket OFF

Uwakwe ON

Gregory from the spot. 1-0 Owls. At last!

Goalkeeper Richards had a wee bit of a dance on the line to try and put him off but the striker slotted the ball into the bottom left corner.

Mendez-Laing is brought down in the box

Still all Wednesday

The Owls remain the dominant team and are getting joy down the left flank particularly but the final ball is lacking a bit; still does feel like only a matter of time

And we’re back underway

Let’s make this a bit easier, eh?
