Championship side Sheffield Wednesday eased into the second round of the Carling Cup with a comfortable victory over League Two outfit Rochdale.
Wednesday took the lead courtesy of a stunning 25-yard looping volley from midfielder Etienne Esajas.
The home side doubled their lead two minutes later when Jermaine Johnson wriggled clear of two defenders and fired in to the left corner of the net.
Forward Johnson ran clear and chipped in his second to seal Wednesday's win.
Sheffield Wednesday manager Brian Laws told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"It followed on from our first-half performance from Saturday, we went about it in the right manner.
"Rochdale were never going to lie down but our passing was good, our movement was good and we created a lot of chances.
"It can only help us with confidence and eradicate the memory of our second-half performance from Saturday."
