Owls take two-goal lead into second leg

Wednesday take a two-goal advantage down to Brighton after a pulsating Championship play-off semi-final first leg victory at Hillsborough.

Fernando Forestieri had a goal disallowed for offside before Ross Wallace fired us in front from long range minutes from the break.

Brighton were reduced to 10 men for the last half-hour when they lost a fourth player through injury and Wednesday made it two when Kieran Lee steered the ball home from inside the box on 73 minutes.

Roared on by a 34,000 crowd, Wednesday continued to press for a third goal while Brighton rarely threatened and we were well worth the two-goal lead to take to the Amex for the second leg on Monday night.
