Hillsborough

It's all eyes on the play-off semi-final second leg between the Owls and Sunderland at Hillsborough on Monday night.

The tie is finely poised for a big night of football under the S6 lights.

The Black Cats hold a one-goal advantage from the first leg at the Stadium of Light.

Ross Stewart’s goal in first half stoppage time separates the sides heading into the sold-out clash at Hillsborough.

For Darren Moore’s side, the importance of a home capacity crowd cannot be overstated.

The fixture was quick to sell out last week and we are all set for another electric atmosphere on home soil.

Wednesday romped to victory in the season finale against Portsmouth under similar circumstances, in terms of a bumper crowd, a little over a week ago.

With a place in the play-off final at Wembley on offer, the stakes are high once again.

Although a goal down in the tie, Wednesday will feel buoyed by the home record this season where Moore’s men have been a force throughout the campaign.

Only once have the Owls failed to score at home in League One this season, while Wednesday have won 16, drawn five and lost on just two occasions at Hillsborough.

Sunderland extended their unbeaten run against us on Friday, which now stands at 14 games.

TEAM NEWS

Wednesday: Harlee Dean returned to the starting XI in the first leg and could keep his place on Monday having come through the game unscathed.

Josh Windass continues to rack up more minutes under his belt since his return from injury and is likely to feature at some stage in the second leg.

Despite fears before the game at the Stadium of Light, captain Barry Bannan was passed fit to play.

Sunderland: As for the visitors, Carl Winchester is expected to miss out while Nathan Broadhead remains a doubt after missing the first leg.

Alex Neil could name an unchanged side from Friday.

Match Reports

Report: Wednesday 1-1 Sunderland

9 May 2022

The Owls suffered play-off heartbreak as a last-gasp leveller from Patrick Roberts sent Sunderland to Wembley.

Lee Gregory had earlier given Wednesday the lead to wipe out the visitors’ first leg advantage but the Black Cats had the final say.

Wednesday had the better of the game on the balance of play but couldn’t find enough to put the game to bed.

Half chances, mainly for the Owls, punctuated the first passages of play in a rousing Hillsborough atmosphere.

Sunderland, protecting their slender lead from the Stadium of Light, seemed content with attacking on the counter as Wednesday certainly saw more of the ball.

George Byers threatened with an acrobatic bicycle kick that Anthony Patterson gratefully smothered before Gregory headed over the top moments later.

The only other real talking point of a relatively incident-free opening period was on 40 minutes when Josh Windass went down beneath a Dennis Cirkin challenge in the box but the penalty claims were waved away.

The interval provided Wednesday the opportunity to regroup and try to fashion a way through in the second half, the pattern of which matched the first.

Lynden Gooch was mightily relieved to see his interception whistle inches wide of the far post after good work down the right from Windass, with Gregory waiting to pounce.

Patterson dived to gather a Sam Hutchinson effort – before the roof came off Hillsborough as the Owls took the lead on 74 minutes.

Barry Bannan unpicked the lock with a threaded ball to Marvin Johnson, whose slide-rule feed was converted by Gregory.

Wednesday were in the ascendancy and poured forward in pursuit of a second, with Sunderland camped in their own half.

But the one time they did break ranks, the Black Cats scored in stoppage time to seal their route to Wembley.

Jack Clarke motored down the left flank in space and looked up to pick out the onrushing Roberts, who stabbed home from close range.

Wednesday: Peacock-Farrell, Hunt (Mendez-Laing 70), Storey, Dean, Johnson, Hutchinson (Palmer 70), Luongo, Byers (Berahino 90), Windass (Paterson 77), Gregory
