Sheffield Wednesday cruised to a win over relegation threatened Reading to further strengthen their good finish to the campaign under manager Jos Luhukay.
The Owls have picked up over the last few months thanks to a host of returning players, including the likes of Tom Lees and Barry Bannan, but today was all about striker Fernando Forestieri, who smashed in two goals – including a stunning second – to lead the home side to a 3-0 win.
The little striker has missed too much of the season for many Wednesday fans’ liking, and his return to form and fitness is a massive boost for the club going into next season, when expectations will be back on the club to make a charge at the playoffs.
Following the performance of Forestieri today, plenty of Wednesday fans were quick to take to social media to sing his praises, and we at FLW were on hand to look at Twitter to see exactly what was being said about the classy Sheffield Wednesday man…
Special player Forestieri when he’s in that mood ????

Forestieri doesn’t care about Wednesday, they said.

Forestieri is a magnificent footballer, on his day he’s the most dangerous in the league. #Swfc
