Opening day victory for ten-man Owls

Ten-man Wednesday clinched an excellent 3-1 opening day win at Reading on Saturday.

Kadeem Harris cut inside and fired us ahead on 30 minutes but the home side came more into the game either side of the interval and equalised soon after the restart when Yakou Meute headed home.

However, Wednesday bounced back to regain the lead on 56 minutes through birthday boy Sam Hutchinson’s powerful header before the game took another twist 10 minutes from time when Keiren Westwood was red carded for a foul on Mo Barrow.

The 10 men battled to hold onto the lead and, deep into seven minutes of injury time, Lucas Joao ensured the points were going back to S6 when he swivelled on the edge of the box and sent a low shot into the corner of the net.

Westwood (S/O 81), Odubajo, Lees, Borner, Palmer, Harris (Forestieri 77), Hutchinson, Bannan, Lee (Joao 77), Reach, Fletcher (Dawson 82).
