SWFC 2 – Doncaster Rovers 0- The Owls take all 3 points at Hillsborough Stadium

On Saturday, Doncaster Rovers suffer an away defeat to Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough Stadium. With each team arriving on the back of a league defeat, they were both keen to pick up points. SWFC were hoping to get something from this game, following a previous defeat to Morecambe FC. Doncaster Rovers, on the other hand, lost 2-0 in the last match they played against Rotherham United. As the table looks today, SWFC are in 2nd place, with 10 points from 2 matches, while Doncaster Rovers sit in 24th, with 1 point from 2.

After a goalless first half, SWFC piled on the pressure in the second, with Barry Bannan finding the net, 72 minutes in. However they weren’t finished yet and Dennis Adeniran made it 2-0, at 75 minutes to make it 2-0.

SWFC brought on Lee Gregory, Jaden Brown and George Byers for Florian Kamberi, Marvin Johnson and Andre Green. Doncaster Rovers brought on Omar Bogle, Ed Williams and Branden Horton, to replace Tiago Cukur, Dan Gardner and Ben Close.

The referee booked three players from Doncaster Rovers, Tommy Rowe, Kyle Knoyle and Ethan Gaibraith.
