Match Reports

Report: Wednesday 2-0 Leicester U21s

18 October 2022

The Owls ended their Papa John’s Trophy campaign with a 2-0 win over Leicester Under-21s.

Wednesday were already eliminated from the competition having lost to Bradford and Burton but finished Group H with victory at Hillsborough.

Callum Paterson set the ball rolling early on before Will Trueman made his senior debut one to remember with a second half goal.

Cameron Dawson saved a Tawanda Maswanhise penalty to preserve the clean sheet and conclude a worthwhile exercise for the hosts.

As expected, Darren Moore shuffled his pack all over the pitch and the new-look team took just eight minutes to open the scoring, with Paterson perfectly executing a fierce free kick.


After Leojo Davidson won a set piece just outside the ‘D’ Paterson stepped up to thump low and hard past the despairing Chituru Odunze.

The Foxes forged an immediate response and it took a flying Dawson save to divert Shane Flynn’s curling effort heading for the top corner.

The tie developed into a relatively even affair, with the Owls probably having the edge.


Mallik Wilks was a threat, his clever pass fed Davidson in the area and Odunze was down well to parry.

At the other end, Maswanhise flashed a whistling shot across Dawson and past the far post.

Back came Wednesday and Wilks shrugged off two challenges through a powerhouse run down the left channel only for a wayward finish to belie the impressive approach.

Paterson was a whisker away from Davidson’s inviting cross in the early throes of the second period as the Owls made their intentions clear.


And on 52 minutes, Wednesday doubled their lead. Jaden Brown took control of a loose ball near the byline to pick out Trueman, who side-footed home from close range.

Brown went close himself on the hour, skipping past two defenders in the box but drilling off target and Paterson scooped over the bar moments later.

Leicester almost halved the deficit with a swift counter that saw Will Alves smash against the crossbar before they squandered a golden opportunity on 65 minutes.

Jack Hunt was adjudged to have felled Maswanhise in the area and the referee pointed to the spot but Dawson leapt to his left spectacularly to keep out the same player’s spot-kick.


That knocked the stuffing from the Foxes and Paul Appiah, in the right place on the line, prevented a second goal for Trueman as Wednesday sought a third.

Maswanhise had a further reminder it was not his night when he stabbed wide of an open goal in the closing stages of a game that Wednesday largely dominated and duly won.

Wednesday: Dawson, Hunt, Agbontohoma, McGuinness (Aguas 63), Brown, Davidson, Trueman (Cadamarteri 81), Glover, Mighten, Wilks (Shipston 72), Paterson
