STATS & ANALYSIS
Good day: Gary Hooper
Fully underlined just what the Owls have missed in his absence. One key assist and the all-important winner. Do not bet against further contributions.
Bad day: Scott Carson
The former Leeds goalkeeper, who had a loan spell at Wednesday in 2006, unconvincingly dealt with Adam Reach’s centre to enable Hooper to score the winner.
Key moment: 55th minute
Glenn Loovens clears Will Hughes’s effort off the line to prevent Derby going two ahead. Wednesday level soon after.
Ref watch: Jeremy Simpson
The Lancastrian was pretty good in the main. Not a particularly tough game to officiate.
The Owls were unrelenting and strong and their squad strength is shining through. They will not be far off in the play-offs.
