A double from Fraser Preston gave Wednesday under-23s a 2-1 win over their Sheff U counterparts at Hillsborough this evening.
The visitors took the lead on 19 minutes through Leo Gaxha but Preston struck for the first time just before the break with a low shot to equalise.
And he was on target again soon after the restart, running onto Liam Shaw’s through ball to shoot past keeper Jake Eastwood and put us 2-1 up.
Keeper Josh Render then excelled in the closing stages to deny Sheff U and ensure Wednesday’s victory over their young City rivals.
