Sheff Wed 0-4 Wolves

Adam Proudlock made a dramatic return to Hillsborough to rub salt into Sheffield Wednesday's relegation wounds and keep Wolves on course for the play-offs.

Proudlock was a short-lived Owls hero, scoring two goals in a month-long loan spell from Wolves.

But he turned villain for the Wednesday fans on Saturday, scoring twice in 18 first-half minutes to stretch the visitors' unbeaten run to six matches.

Adam has been through a tough time, but now we are seeing him back to the form we know he is capable of

Dean Sturridge marked his return to fitness by coming off the bench to hammer in the final goal after Kenny Miller had struck Wolves' third.

Proudlock might have had a hat-trick but missed Shaun Newton's cross at the far post and had another effort cleared off the line.

Between those moments, though, he opened his account by running on to Miller's defence-splitting through-ball.

And he crowned his first start since December 2001 with another goal four minutes after the break.

This time, some smart interpassing between Paul Ince and Mark Kennedy cut Wednesday open for Proudlock to sidefoot home from close range.

They have five or six efforts on goal and four went in and that's the difference between a team going for the top and one at the bottom

Wednesday had enjoyed the better of the opening exchanges but came no closer than an Alan Quinn 25-yarder that Matthew Murray turned round the post.

And after the break they showed few signs of being able to halt Wolves' momentum.

Kennedy hit a post for the visitors before picking out Miller for a scoring header that was bundled over his own line by Wednesday keeper Kevin Pressman.

And the veteran was beaten again in the 90th minute, when Sturridge's strike condemned the First Division strugglers to their worst home defeat of the season.
