Gary Megson saw his Sheffield Wednesday come from behind to beat Tranmere Rovers in League One.

Owls captain Rob Jones returned after recovering from surgery on a broken nose. Goalkeeper Nicky Weaver returned to training this week - three months after kneem surgery - but will not be rushed back into competitive action.

Lewis Buxton missed out, Liam Palmer replacing the right-back, while Reda Johnson was at left-back. Stephen Bywater and Ben Marshall returned after being cup-tied last weekend.

Jose Baxter opened the scoring for the hosts after 38 minutes, before the Owls grabbed an equaliser on the stroke of half-time via Chris Lines.

Substitute Ryan Lowe put the Owls in front with 10 minutes remaining, heading home a corner for the visitors.
