Sheffield Wednesday’s team selection raised eyebrows this evening against Sunderland, but Darren Moore’s bold calls paid off at Hillsborough as they won 3-0. 

Moore had opted to draft Theo Corbeanu into his side at left wing-back, with the 19-year-old thriving and helping to put Wednesday in complete control at half-time.

Corbeanu, who is on loan from Wolves, opened the scoring on 11 minutes with a curling finish and then teed up Florian Kamberi on 39 minutes to double the Owls’ lead – Lee Gregory put extra gloss on the result in the second-half.

Tonight has been the first time that Moore has handed Corbeanu a start in League One, despite the Owls’ patchy form over the course of the season so far.

After such a telling impact inside just 45 minutes tonight, many fans are feeling a sense of ‘told you so’ when it comes to Moore selecting the loanee.
