Sheffield Wednesday climbed back into the Sky Bet Championship play-off positions at the weekend, after defeating Brentford 2-1 at Hillsborough.
The Owls secured back-to-back wins on Saturday afternoon after they defeated Brentford by two goals to one, as Garry Monk’s men continue to build momentum heading into the New Year.
But the afternoon didn’t go to plan straight away, though. Bryan Mbeumo headed home from a corner to give Brentford an early lead, in a half which they dominated on the whole.
But with the game threatening to get away from the Owls, Steven Fletcher netted a brace in quick succession to secure an invaluable 2-1 win for Wednesday, taking his tally up to 10 goals for the campaign.
Can you get 15 out of 15 on this Wednesday quiz?
His first goal came from the penalty spot in the 69th minute, and four minutes later, he bundled home from close-range after impressive hold-up play.
The afternoon saw Kadeem Harris produce an excellent performance in the second-half – the winger was a constant threat in the latter stages of the contest, and produced a sublime assist as Fletcher scored his second goal of the afternoon.
Here, we take a look at Owls fans’ reactions to his performance…
Tell ya what that ball from Harris for Fletch’s 2nd was sensational #swfc

2nd half however, brilliant. Complete turnaround, thought Harris played well. Fletcher once again outstanding. Rhodes again changing the game. Also pleased with the reception he got before he came on. #swfc

Harris absolutely brilliant second half for #SWFC – he was the real difference for me. Crazy handball for the pen. Brentford best team to come to Hillsborough this season for me so to get a win, when we weren’t great, is a real achievement. Onto Derby …. #wawaw

After a poor 1st half we played much better in 2nd to win it. Fletcher and Harris excellent. Impressed with Brentford though – very good recruitment clearly. #swfc
