Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell has taken to Instagram to reflect on his side’s latest display in League One.
The Owls managed to extend their unbeaten run in the third-tier to six games by securing an eye-catching 3-0 victory over Sunderland on Tuesday.
Peacock-Farrell claimed his fifth league clean-sheet of the season in this fixture as he produced an assured performance in this particular clash.
Theo Corbeanu opened the scoring for Wednesday at Hillsborough before Florian Kamberi doubled his side’s advantage in the 39th minute.
Following the break, Lee Gregory netted his sixth goal of the 2021/22 campaign as the Owls outclassed their opponents.
With Wednesday set to face Plymouth Argyle in the first round of the FA Cup this weekend, it will be intriguing to see whether manager Darren Moore decides to select a strong team for this fixture.
Peacock-Farrell will be determined to help his side eliminate the Pilgrims from the competition if he is given the nod to start.
Reflecting on Wednesday’s latest display in League One on Instagram, the Northern Ireland international has admitted that he was happy to see the club get back on track following four successive draws at this level.

Having dropped points in their recent fixtures, Wednesday were finally able to get back on track in the third-tier earlier this week.
Since joining the Owls on a season-long loan deal from Burnley in the summer transfer window, Peacock-Farrell has managed to show glimpses of promise at this level.
However, it is also worth pointing out that the keeper has made some errors which have cost his side points in League One.
By using the confidence that he gained from keeping a clean-sheet against Sunderland to his advantage, Peacock-Farrell may be able to help his side push in the third-tier in the coming months by delivering the goods on a consistent basis.
Set to face Gillingham at Hillsborough later this month, the Owls may prove to be too strong for Steve Evans’ side in this fixture as their opponents have only managed to win one away league game this season.
