Report: Wednesday 3-1 Hull

1 January 2024

Wednesday drew more daylight at the foot of the Championship with a convincing 3-1 win over 10-man Hull.

Tyler Morton was sent off for the Tigers in the first half, giving his team an uphill battle to take anything back to Humberside.

And the ruthless Owls took full advantage as second half goals from Marvin Johnson, Djeidi Gassama and Josh Windass put the game out of reach.

Scott Twine converted a penalty to give the scoreline more respectability but there was no doubting the better side from the start.

Barry Bannan and Michael Ihiekwe fired warning shots as Wednesday took the game to the Tigers.

Matt Ingram had to be alert to deny Windass, whose bullet header from a Bannan set piece was goalbound until the Hull keeper spooned away right on his line.

The visitors had to wait until midway through the first half for a rare sight of goal and Wednesday had Ihiekwe to thank for a crucial block to thwart Jacob Greaves.

The contest took a twist on 34 minutes when Hull were reduced to 10 men. Morton launched into a strong challenge on Gassama and the referee had no hesitation in brandishing a red card.

The Tigers’ task grew all the more tough four minutes after the restart.

Ashley Fletcher went tumbling in the box but as the home crowd called for a penalty, Johnson smashed the loose ball into the back of the net with sheer venom.

And just five minutes later, the Owls doubled their lead. Gassama took a short pass from Johnson, turned his marker, and unleashed an unstoppable hit from range into the far corner.

Wednesday were irresistible and Hull shellshocked. Fletcher grazed the crossbar with a glancing header and Palmer was inches wide from 20 yards.

But it was all but over for the Tigers on 72 minutes when they only half-cleared a Johnson cross straight into the path of Windass, who struck a beauty beyond the despairing Ingram.

The only consolation for Hull on a grim afternoon arrived four minutes later from the penalty spot after Ihiekwe was adjudged to have handled in the box.

Twine stepped up and buried past Cameron Dawson but it was too little too late and the Owls emerged comfortable winners.

Wednesday: Dawson, Valentin (M Diaby 73), Ihiekwe, Bernard, Johnson, Palmer, Bannan (Bakinson 86), Gassama, Windass (Smith 73), Musaba (Wilks 86), Cadamarteri (Fletcher 46)
