Sheffield Wednesday vs Hartlepool: 'Torrid night' ... 'Really struggled' - Joe Crann's Owls player ratings from 3-0 defeat

It was a night to forget for Sheffield Wednesday in the Papa John’s Trophy against Hartlepool United.

Thursday, 2nd December 2021, 7:20 am

The Owls never looked like they were at the races, and were 2-0 down early in the first half after a sloppy opener from Mark Shelton and then a calamitous Jaden Brown own goal.

Darren Moore rang the changes at the break, but it turned out to be too little too late. Will Goodwin made it three, and Wednesday were deservedly booted out of the tournament by the Monkey Hangers.

It was truly a bad night at the office for the Owls, and they got what they deserved. Here’s how we rated things after 90 minutes.
