It’s all over.

How a game can turn so quickly. Three goals in 13 second half minutes for the Owls.

Rovers grafted hard but the visitors’ extra quality told in the end.

McSheffrey and Sinclair have been involved in an altercation with a disgruntled Rovers fan next to the dugout.

Another break down the left and Bannan this time turns home the cross with a first-time finish.

Berahino turns nicely in the box and fires past Mitchell.

Mitchell dives to the left and keeps Bannan’s kick out with his legs!

Given for handball against Williams. That looked very harsh.

Martin’s deflected effort from distance forces a full length save from Peacock-Farrell.

Paterson for the visitors....

His first effort was saved but he reacted quickest to net at the second attempt.

Bannan with a shot from distance, just wide.
