Sheff Wed   2 - 1   Peterborough

Sheffield Wednesday"s Marcus Tudgay and Peterborough United"s Charlie Lee

Highlights - Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 Peterborough

Marcus Tudgay's brace helped in-form Sheffield Wednesday pull further clear of the Championship relegation zone.

The Owls started brightly and Joe Lewis saved well from Leon Clarke and Darren Potter before Tudgay glanced home Michael Gray's corner.

The striker then doubled the Owls' lead after the break, stooping in unmarked at the back post to head his second.

Jack Livermore clawed one back for Posh, firing into the left-hand corner, but Wednesday weathered the late storm.


Sheffield Wednesday manager Alan Irvine:

"The danger, certainly today from my point of view, was that, having won at two very difficult places in Barnsley and Blackpool, everyone assumed we would win today.

"I was really concerned about this game in terms of how the players might approach it mentally and we've talked about that really since the final whistle at Blackpool through to the start of the game.

"And I have to say they really took all of that on board and responded brilliantly.

"It's a great start but we still need an awful lot more wins and the moment we think that the job is done, then we will have problems again."

Peterborough boss Mark Cooper:

"We've prepared as if it was the World Cup final this week. I drove to Blackpool and watched Sheffield on Tuesday, prepared for three days solid on how we were going to play.

"So, as staff, we did our part but the players let the club down. I've been sat here I don't know how many times after we've gone behind. Against Coventry we were down 2-0 and came back to 2-2. Cardiff we go 4-0 down and get back to 4-4.

"It seems we have to go behind before we start playing. Well, if you're 2-0 down it is easy to play because there is no pressure on you.

"But it is at 0-0 that you've got to go and earn your corn. That's when it matters, and that's why we're struggling - because people don't have the bottle to go and do it when it is 0-0."
