Match Report: Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 Robins

8 October 2022

The Robins fell to a 3-0 defeat away at Hillsborough.

Goals from Josh Windass, Barry Bannan, and Fisayo Dele-Bashiru sealed a comfortable score line for the home side.

Sheffield Wednesday took the lead early, Josh Windass opened the scoring from a central freekick 25 yards out from goal.

The home side forcefully pushed to extend the lead. Luke Southwood saved well to his right from a Michael Smith shot from inside the box before he denied Smith again minutes later from a similar range.

Having faced a 20-minute bombardment on the goal, Wade Elliott’s men replied, threatening the home goal on numerous occasions.

First Christian Norton, then Ryan Broom headed towards the goal in quick succession. Norton’s attempt was blocked by a stranded  David Stockdale, who watched Broom’s follow-up header miss the target.

Town looked to catch the home side on the break. Liam Sercombe came even closer to an equalizer, his shot from inside the box cleared off the line.

Wednesday’s lead was almost doubled, Lee Gregory hitting the post with a right-footed shot from outside the box.

Gregory came close again to extending the lead, diverting his header from Marvin Johnson’s cross over the bar.

The best chance of the half for Town fell to the feet of Norton, as he latched onto a misplaced back pass, only to see his shot blocked by the body of Stockdale.

Wednesday came out in the second half, as they started the first. Attacking Southwood’s goal. Windass almost doubled his tally taking aim from far out, with the strike just over the bar.

The Robin’s best chance of the second period fell to Sercombe, Taylor Perry intercepted the ball inside his own half, driving to the opposition box before playing in Sercombe to the right of the goal. The midfielder’s shot deflected out for a corner.

With 10 minutes to play, Sheffield Wednesday scored their second of the game. Barry Bannan shooting from well outside the box, finding the top corner of Southwood’s net.

Three minutes later, The Owls scored their third. Having been introduced from the bench, substitute Fisayo Dele-Basiru found the back of the net from the top of the box.

The home side threatened intensely into the seven additional minutes. Southwood was forced into action twice more. Denying Dele-Bashiru’s shot down to his right, then stopping Johnson in a one-on-one.

Match Pack: Sheffield Wednesday (A)

6 October 2022

The Robins will make their trip to Hillsborough on Saturday to face Sheffield Wednesday in the Sky Bet League One (3PM KO).

With two home wins over Shrewsbury Town and Bolton Wanderers, the Robins have an unbeaten start at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium this month.

Sheffield Wednesday are currently 3rd in League One, but lost 2-1 away to Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday-the loss was only their third of the season. 

Six fixtures are still to be played in October, including this Saturday's visit to Hillsborough. Robins fans can still purchase your tickets.

“It's nice to go away off the back of a couple of wins. We have talked about home form being the foundation of what we do, but prior to Accrington our away performances and form had been pretty good. We want to pick that back up,” said Wade Elliott ahead of the game.

“I'd imagine when the fixtures come out at the start of the year, Wednesday away would be one of the ones they (the players) look for. But we've earned the right to be going there. We have earned the right to go and compete with them on a level playing field. We certainly won't be going there and being passive.”

The Robins are looking forward to the game, and are aiming to put in a good performance against the Owls.

Its just trusting the process really, the gaffer was big on the boys putting in a good performance and focussing on that, but obviously we’ve got a lot of talented boys so you’ve just got to trust the process,” revealed Ryan Jackson.

Wednesday manager Darren Moore knows the challenge that Cheltenham could bring to his side, while also praising our head coach.

“Wade took over at a time after Michael Duff moved on. He was part of the staff. He has done his coaching badges and he has been given a wonderful opportunity to manage Cheltenham. He has got them playing with a solid approach. They have got some good wins on the board. I am sure they will come up here in a confident, buoyant mood. It is a different type of test for us,” he revealed.
