Tom Lees: Seemed to be back to his best, with some fine defending in the second half as Watford stepped up the pressure. 7

Dominic Iorfa: The one player on the pitch who always seem to have time on the ball. 7

Joost van Aken: Ability on the ball never in doubt, but impressed here and looks to have added some defensive resolve. 7

Matt Penney: Worked hard, but seemed to tire as the game progressed. 6

Barry Bannan: Scotland international never stopped running and seems to be enjoying his role in a midfield three. 7

Izzy Brown: Arguably Wednesday’s best player since the season kicked off. The new creative force in the Owls midfield. Missed a great headed chance late on. 8

Massimo Luongo: Does the ‘dirty work’ in midfield, the Australian is an integral part of this Owls team. 7

Kadeem Harris: His pace troubled Watford all afternoon, and chipped in with his defensive share too as a wing-back. 7

Jordan Rhodes: Worked hard and looks far happier now this season. Attempted a long-range lob in the first half, but no real clear-cut chances. 7

Josh Windass: Was denied what looked a blatant penalty in the first half, and was also thwarted by Ben Foster after a fine break.


Liam Palmer (Penney 55): Scotland international slotted in at right wing-back and is Mr Consistency. 7

Elias Kachunga (Rhodes 69): Former Huddersfield Town forward had a couple of half-chances, when on another day he could have bagged a goal. 6

Adam Reach (Windass 85): Was thrown up front late on, but looks awkward playing as a striker.
