Owls show steel to secure derby win

Published Add your comment

Sheffield Wednesday snatched the bragging rights back off city rivals Sheffield United with goals from Akpo Sodje and Marcus Tudgay securing a 2-0 Coca-Cola Championship victory.

Sodje struck in the 25th minute and, after the Owls had defended as if their lives depended on it in the second half, Tudgay lashed home a decisive second with 15 minutes remaining.

The win was sweet for most of the 30,486 Hillsborough crowd after the Blades had won the last three Steel City encounters.
