Report: Burnley 0-1 Wednesday

Wednesday knocked out Premier League opposition to progress to the third round of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.

The Owls saw off Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor thanks to a late Atdhe Nuhiu penalty to book their place in the next round and maintain their impressive unbeaten start to the season in all competitions.

Wednesday have now won all three of their away matches and the success comes hot-on-the-heels of an impressive league win at Middlesbrough on Saturday that left Stuart Gray's men in the top-six.

Burnley, recently promoted to the top fight, provided the toughest test of all, despite resting first-team players, but the Owls came through with flying colours despite resting regular starters of their own.

Chris Kirkland started in goal, while there were also starts for Gary Madine and Jeremy Helan. Glenn Loovents, Nuhiu and Stevie May were amongst those who started on the bench.

The success will have meant a little extra for Gray, who was a former first team coach and caretaker boss of the Clarets. The Owls boss said he would make the trip across the Pennines to win and he did just that.

Ashley Barnes and Marvin Sordell had good chances for the hosts but the visitors were far from second best and grabbed the decisive goal with 12 minutes left when Nuhiu tucked home his third goal from two games when Helan was felled inside the box and the referee pointed to the spot.

The hosts pushed hard to get on level terms late on but Wednesday clung on to book their place in the second round.

Burnley: Gilks, Trippier, Shackell, Ward, Arfield, Sordell (Jutkiewicz 83), Kightly (Ings 83), Wallace, Long, Jones (Taylor 60), Barnes.

Wednesday: Kirkland, Palmer, Zayatte, Lees, Mattock, Maghoma (May 63), Coke, Semedo, Helan, Maguire (Nuhiu 72), Madine.

Stuart Gray deserves a medal the size of a dust bin lid for forging a tiny experienced squad together a credit to his man management and coaching skills (That is what coaching is about Mr Alan Irvine). Lets not get too carried away difficult as it may be we have had our slice of luck so far but maybe there is something in the old adage that you work hard and create your own luck. Either way Mandaric need to help Stu now over the new week or so for a couple of quality expericed signings hard work can only take you so far and credit to the players but a couple of key additions will be excellent whilst confidence is high for a change and not when we are desperate. Half a dozen of these players from last night must be knackered and it is a big ask to produce again on saturday but we shall see well done Stu and the boys. I am as suprised as anyone at what he is doing now mandaric must help him before the grass looks a little greener else where when the vultures start circling

Totally agree, glad our Stu has had the chance to work his magic before the new owners bought in a big name, great win last night and so good to look at the top of the league table rather than the bottom

I actually find it weird looking at the top end of the league for a change as I automatically look at the bottom. I'm not that bothered about the takeover now. Would like to have a crack at it for one season with SG and MM. MM would obviously have to release moderate funds for cover, particularly at the back.
