Convincing win for Under-23s

6 May 2021

The Owls’ Under-23s produced an impressive performance in their final away game of the season, beating Wigan 4-1.

Goals from Charles Hagan (2), Liam Waldock and substitute Alex Bonnington did the damage and although Scott Smith pulled one back for the hosts, it was little more than a consolation.

Wednesday, fielding their youngest side of the season, were in command in the first half and hit the front on 13 minutes.

Hagan showed power and pace to advance one on one with Latics keeper Sam Tickle before slotting home a calm finish.

That set the tone for a dominant display and the lead was extended on 38 minutes. Jay Glover delivered an inviting corner, Josh Dawodu nodded back for Hagan and the striker headed past Tickle to double his tally.

A third goal right on half time gave Wigan a mountain to climb but was no more than the Owls deserved. Basile Zottos went close after picking up a loose ball and Waldock took control to stab into the net at the second attempt.

Wednesday bossed possession in the second half and put the game out of sight just past the hour. Declan Thompson sprayed across field for Zottos, who sent a perfect feed into the mix for Bonnington to make it 4-0.

Wigan did manage to get on the scoresheet through Smith after a neat interchange with Tom Costello 20 minutes from time but the Owls’ defence was untroubled thereafter to conclude a comprehensive win.

Lee Bullen’s side complete their fixture list with a home game against Swansea at Middlewood Road on Monday.

Wednesday: Jackson, Farmer, Aguas, Dawodu, Galvin, Thompson, Zottos (Al-Jahadhmy 81), Waldock, Hagan, Glover (Trueman 73), Trialist (Bonnington 56)
