Sheiffield Wednesday lead Charlton Athletic 1-0 at half time thanks to Royston Drenthe's long-range effort.

The home side could have taken an early lead when the returning Yoni Buyens found George Tucudean inside the Sheffield Wednesday box, but the Romanian striker's effort was saved by Kieren Westwood.

The lively Drenthe fired his side ahead from distance on 27 minutes to put the Owls on course for three Championship points.
