Video: Only one winner after Gary Hooper's opener, says Dom Howson as Sheffield Wednesday clinch top six spot

Have your say

The Star's Sheffield Wednesday reporter Dom Howson singled out Gary Hooper for praise as the striker's two goals helped the Owls to a 3-0 win over Cardiff City and clinched their place in the play-offs.

Hooper opened the scoring to ease any nerves that may have been swirling round Hillsborough and then made the second which effectively ended Cardiff's challenge. The frontman then knocked in the third to end a terrific week, which had also seen him become a father for the first time.

Dom said: "As soon as Gary Hooper put them in front in the second half there really only looked as though there would be one winner. Hooper was the star man, scored two, and was the creator of the killer second goal. It all comes after his daughter this week, so it's rounded off a perfect week for him personally and a great week for the club."
