Stobbs' strike seals victory for Under-21s

2 December 2015

The Owls Under-21s posted their third win of the season away at Coventry City on Wednesday afternoon.

Jack Stobbs scored the only goal of the game before the half hour mark which ultimately sealed the points for the visitors.

After an even start to the contest, the Sky Blues almost went ahead when Lateef Elford-Alliyu nodded just wide from close range.

And the hosts were made to pay as Stobbs curled an unstoppable effort past Coventry ‘keeper Lee Burge to put the Owls ahead.

Immediately after the interval, Dawson was called into action when Elford-Alliyu ran through on goal but the Owls academy product made a terrific stop to deny City an equaliser.

Coventry went close in the late stages with Bassala Sambou shooting inches wide of the far post in the final ten minutes but Wednesday held on to record victory.

Development Squad coach Neil Thompson said: “We did well in the first half, like we did in the Hull game the previous week.

“Luke Booker and Jack Stobbs linked well to create the first goal and it was really pleasing to see.

“In the second half they came at us, we didn’t play as well and gave the ball away too much.

“I’ve said before, we need to make it easier for ourselves and show more composure.

“But the lads muddled through and held out and I’m pleased for them. We’ve had a lot of draws so it’s nice to get a win and a clean sheet.”
