The Owls began their season with victory over Aston Villa at Hillsborough as Fernando Forestieri’s late strike settled the live televised clash.

A much-changed Wednesday side were then defeated after extra time in the EFL Cup-tie with Cambridge.

The game saw a number of Owls youngsters make their senior bow for the club including Connor O’Grady, James Murphy and George Hirst.

In front of the Sky Sports cameras four days later, Carlos Carvalhal’s side travelled to Norwich and gained a hard-fought point from the 0-0 draw.

Back to back defeats followed to Burton Albion and Leeds and it looked as though the Owls would suffer a third loss on the bounce at Brentford to finish the month.

Trailing 1-0 in stoppage time, Barry Bannan’s delivery from the left was met in the middle by Sam Hutchinson, who stooped low to head powerfully into the roof of the net to salvage a deserved share of the spoils.
