  • David Agbontohoma makes Owls debut
  • Ciaran Brennan and Liam Waldock also start

The scoreline flatters Wednesday somewhat but they won’t care. Four goals, four goalscorers and a clean sheet.

Not a bad night at all.

Harrogate make a switch

Diamond, who has been impressive, is replaced by George Thompson. And Will Smith (not that one) - a defender replaces Danilo Orsi.

More Wednesday changes

Luongo is replaced by Dele-Bashiru while Byers makes way for Dennis Adeniran.

Connor Hall was also sent off just before the penalty for his trip on Adedoyin

Adedoyin sends the keeper the wrong way and buries the ball into the left-hand corner to make it 4-0.

How this is 4-0 is beyond me.

Adedoyin is tripped in the area and he steps up to take the spot kick...

Korede Adedoyin has replaced Saido Berahino.

Moments after more fine goalkeeping from Wildsmith to deny Harrogate twice Sylla Sow dances through a few challenges in the Harrogate box before finding the bottom corner with a brilliant low strike.

Byers doubles the lead

The midfielder rises to meet Shodipo’s cross in the area and guides his header into the bottom corner.

Slightly against the run of play, but who cares? Good team goal.
