Sheffield Wednesday (3-5-2)
David Stockdale 7
Stood tall to make an indispensable early stop to frustrate Collins after the striker dashed through on objective after a sad piece of play from Ihiekwe. Colossal save in added on time with his feet to thwart Collins. Didn’t necessarily, in all cases, look persuading attempting to work out from the back.
Mark McGuinness 7
Consistently moved to one side of the back three. Solid and committed with his guarded obligations as Rovers got little delight down his flank. Was guaranteed when the Owls changed to four-man protection.
Michael Ihiekwe 4
Did nothing squarely in a sweltering first half. Looked awkward under lock and key all through and was lucky to just be reserved after a glaring foul from a Rovers counter assault. Will miss the Burton match subsequent to gathering his fifth yellow card of the time.
Jaden Brown 5
Shockingly chose left focus back. It was Earthy colored’s most memorable association start since October 2021. He had a few decent minutes, however, and ought to have cleared his lines in the development to Coburn’s balancer.
Liam Palmer 6
A dedicated shift from the Scotland global. Was consistent protectively and placed in several hazardous crosses when he got forward. A quiet presence.
George Byers 7
Gotten things going under lock and key on his re-visitation of the side. Created a snapshot of unadulterated class to lay out up Smith’s objective. Very driving run and cross to tee up the striker. Should have shut Evans faster down to stop the midfielder playing the ball through for Coburn.
Barry Bannan 6
Kept things ticking in midfield yet neglected to make a telling commitment in the last third. His shooting was less than impressive by his exclusive expectations. Not one of the captain’s better exhibitions.
Josh Windass 6
Played in the number 10 and began brilliantly enough, seeing a right foot shot drove away by Belshaw. Likewise had a header from a Bannan focus kept out by the Rovers goalkeeper. Danced all through the challenge.
Marvin Johnson 7
His best exhibition for quite a while. Ended up being useful work protectively and got into a few decent going-after positions. Conveyed a line of superb crosses late on.
Michael Smith 7
Driven the line keenly and finished his scaled-down objective dry season in style with a projectile header from Byers’ pinpoint cross. Gave Rovers safeguard a lot to contemplate. Had an enormous header acrobatically kept out in the perishing coals of the challenge.
Lee Gregory 6
Constrained Belshaw into a breathtaking recovery in the final part after great work from Palmer out wide. Tenacious work rate.
Mallik Wilks (68, 5)
Was used on the right flank however presented not many issues to the Rovers guard.
Fisayo Dele-Bashiru (79, n/a)
