Owls soar to derby day success

Published Add your comment

Chris O'Grady's second-half goal was enough to give Sheffield Wednesday a 1-0 win at home to arch-rivals Sheffield United in the Steel City derby.

O'Grady, who had earlier shot wide, met Lewis Buxton's cross with a near-post header to score the decisive goal in the 73rd minute and move the Owls up to third place in the table, within two points of their neighbours.

Lee Williamson had gone close to giving United a 16th-minute lead when his free-kick from just outside the area struck the underside of the crossbar and bounced down on to the goal-line. Stephen Bywater easily saved Richard Cresswell's follow-up.
