Aarons on target as Owls win derby

A strong Wednesday under-23s side beat Sheff U 2-0 at Bramall Lane on Tuesday evening.

With Steve Bruce and Steve Agnew both in attendance, our starting line-up included Dominic Iorfa from his goalscoring heroics at Rotherham on Saturday and Newcastle loanees Achraf Lazaar and Rolando Aarons.

In addition, there were runouts for Sam Winnall and Daniel Pudil.

We took the lead just before the half-hour mark, Conor Grant creating the opportunity for Aarons to burst through and fire home, and the impressive Grant took advantage of a defensive error to seal victory early in the second half.

Wildsmith, Baker, Lazaar (Nielsen, 74), Pudil, Iorfa, Lee, Aarons (Hunt, 69), Kirby, Stobbs (Preston, 5), Grant, Winnall.
