Sheffield Wednesday 0 Swansea City 2 - player ratings
There were some positives for the Owls, but they need wins, and did not get one. Chief football writer Stuart Rayner looks at how each player did.
Keiren Westwood – came off his line to make a good save from Andre Ayew, and commanded his defence confidently 7
Sam Hutchinson – solid in the back three, he clashed heads with Callum Paterson but carried on 6
Tom Lees – his mistake was decisive, and not his only one 4
Julian Borner – a mixed bag with some very good stuff but some howlers too. Lucky not to concede a penalty 5
Liam Palmer – got into some good crossing positions without finding his man often enough 5
Joey Pelupessy – not eye-catching but did a job in midfield 6
Barry Bannan – did his best to drive Wednesday forward 7
Adam Reach – worked hard at wing-back 6
Liam Shaw – given the freedom of playing in the hole in a 3-4-1-2, he never used it 5
Josh Windass – bright up front but unable to provide the much-needed goal 6
Jordan Rhodes – his last act was a brilliant slide tackle but unable to do what the Owls needed from him, heading a first-half corner over when backpedalling him 6
Callum Paterson (for Rhodes, 65) – Ryan Bennett brilliantly took a cross off his head 6
Izzy Brown (for Shaw, 65) – a difficult situation to come into 5
Andre Green (for Borner, 76) – the game was lost when he came on N/A.
