Vote for your October Player of the Month!

31 October 2016


Owls fans can now register their vote for October’s swfc.co.uk Player of the Month.

The results will be announced on Thursday 3 November.

To help you make your selection, here’s a review of October.

Wednesday began the month with a narrow defeat against Brighton at Hillsborough prior to the international break.



A late Gary Hooper strike proved only a consolation as the Seagulls registered a 2-1 win in a game that saw academy product Cameron Dawson make his maiden first team appearance.

The Owls then travelled to high-flyers Huddersfield and came away with a deserved victory from The John Smith’s Stadium.

The visitors had hit the woodwork twice before the defining moment in the second half when Fernando Forestieri calmly slotted home from the penalty spot.


A tough trip to Cardiff followed where Wednesday battled back from 1-0 down to earn a share of the spoils with Daniel Pudil firing past Ben Amos after the break.

The impetus was with Wednesday following the equaliser and despite Ross Wallace and Forestieri going close late in the contest, the Owls came away with a point from the Welsh capital.



Next-up was a home clash against Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s QPR, where the Owls returned to winning ways.

The big moment of the match came five minutes before the interval with Hooper on target scoring his fourth goal of the campaign.



Prior to the trip to Derby, academy product Liam Palmer extended his stay at the club by penning a new deal until summer 2019.

Palmer – who has featured four times throughout October – said: “There's nowhere else I'd rather be. It's a special club, we’ve got a massive fan base and that's what drives the players ultimately.”

The Owls’ October concluded with a frustrating 2-0 defeat at Derby.
