Sheffield Wednesday stunned promotion-chasing AFC Bournemouth on Tuesday evening, as they ran out 2-1 winners over the Cherries.
The Owls took a shock lead on the night as Callum Paterson capitalised on an error in the Bournemouth defence as he prodded the ball past Asmir Begovic from close-range.
Bournemouth responded though, and their pressure soon told, as Junior Stanislas fired home from the penalty spot, after Sam Surridge was brought down in the area by Sheffield Wednesday’s Sam Hutchinson.
Jason Tindall’s side then pushed for a winner to keep the pressure on their promotion-chasing rivals in the Championship, but were caught on the counter-attack, as Kadeem Harris’ cross was met by Jordan Rhodes, whose powerful header beat Begovic to spark jubilant scenes amongst the Sheffield Wednesday squad.
Keiren Westwood was between the posts for the Owls in this one, and expressed his delight at picking up the three points, which saw Sheffield Wednesday close the gap on their relegation-threatened rivals.
Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday supporters took to social media to praise Westwood for his recent performance in the win over Bournemouth on Tuesday.
