Sheff Wed   6 - 2   Bristol Rovers

Sheffield Wed 6-2 Bristol Rovers

Sheffield Wed 6-2 Bristol Rovers

Sheffield Wednesday trounced struggling Bristol Rovers to start new owner Milan Mandaric's reign with a bang.

Will Hoskins headed Rovers ahead but the Owls responded in style, scoring four goals in 22 first-half minutes.

Chris Sedgwick nodded them level, Tommy Miller lashed home a second and Gary Teale's rebound strike and Jermaine Johnson's solo effort made it 4-1.

A 25-yard Hoskins volley gave Rovers hope but substitutes James O'Connor and Paul Heffernan sealed victory.

After Hoskins' seventh-minute opener, Sedgwick got the Owls' equaliser when he headed in the rebound from six yards after Clinton Morrison had brought a fine save from goalkeeper Mikkel Andersen.

Miller then smashed home a loose ball from 14 yards for the second and, three minutes later, Andersen could not hold Morrison's header and Teale scored from six yards.

Just past the half-hour mark, Johnson waltzed through the Rovers defence to fire home the fourth.

But, although Rovers improved after the break and Hoskins' second goal gave them hope of a point, O'Connor slotted home the fifth before fellow sub Heffernan rounded off the scoring nine minutes from time.


Sheffield Wednesday manager Alan Irvine told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"Terrific result. I thought we were excellent going forward and I though we may have had another 6 goals in the way we attacked.

"Overall I've got to be delighted with scoring six goals.

"A huge day for the club and I felt we could have tapped into the positive atmosphere of the place. We matched a big day with a big performance."
