U21 report | Owls 0-2 Wigan

26 September 2022

Wednesday’s Under-21s were beaten 2-0 by Wigan at Hillsborough on Monday afternoon.

Luke Brennan’s early goal for the Latics set the tone for a first half in which the Owls struggled to create and Youssef Chentouf doubled the visitors’ tally shortly after the break.

But Wednesday ended the game stronger and will be disappointed not to have scored following a flurry of late chances.

Wigan took the lead inside the opening 15 minutes with their first chance of the game.

Josh Stones tricked his way into the box from the right and fed Brennan who placed accurately beyond Luke Jackson.


Moments after, Brennan almost turned provider when he sent Chentouf through on the left before the winger’s effort deflected over the crossbar.

Wigan had a glorious opportunity to double their lead one minute into the second period.

Stones had the goal to aim at after Jackson’s heavy touch found its way to the forward and he struck into the side netting.

However, a second goal did arrive for Wigan on 54 minutes. Brennan’s corner to the front post found the head of Chentouf who glanced home.

Wednesday looked stronger after conceding the second goal and created enough opportunities to get back into the game.


Jay Glover played a superb ball through to Bailey Cadamarteri with the outside of his boot but Owen Mooney was off his line quick to block the forward’s attempt.

A final touch was the only thing missing to put away Leojo Davidson’s low ball across the Latics six-yard box after the former Manchester City man was sent down the right by Will Trueman.

Then, Davidson forced a strong save from Mooney when he jinked past two defenders and struck powerfully at the near post.

But the comeback didn’t arrive, and Wigan took all three points back across the Pennines.

Wednesday: Jackson, Sesay (Dunn 70), Agbontohoma, Trialist (Ashman 45), Adetoro (Phuthi 49), Aguas, Glover, Trueman, Davidson, Cadamarteri, Trialist (Trialist 45)
