STATS & ANAL­Y­SIS

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

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.

Ver­dict

The Owls were un­re­lent­ing and strong and their squad strength is shin­ing through. They will not be far off in the play-offs.
