Under-21s ease past Leeds

20 October 2012

The Sheffield Wednesday Under-21s picked up a resounding 4-0 win on the road over ten-man Leeds on Saturday.

The 2.00pm kick off was 0-0 at the break, with the major turning point coming shortly after the restart.

The lively Caolan Lavery won a penalty for the Owls after being brought down in the area by the Leeds goalkeeper – a challenge which earned the United player a red card.

Matt Fletcher’s penalty was then saved but Bastien Hery was on hand to score from the rebound.

Harry Grant then scored twice for Wednesday to put the derby beyond doubt before Brad Tomlinson struck home from 25 yards into the top corner to round off a good day at the office for the Development squad.

The win over Leeds was the Wednesday Under-21s first clean sheet of the season and on that subject, Lee Bullen said: “Cameron Dawson and the back four were immense today and thoroughly deserved their clean sheet.”

Owls: Dawson, White, Smith, Obileye, Mackenzie, Nyoni, Windass (Hinchliffe 60), Grant, Lavery (Tomlinson 80), Fletcher, Hery
