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.
