Was the result fair?
No question. Boro dominated the game for almost whole match and deservedly took the three points. Wednesday's equaliser was clearly offside and would have been an unjust way to bag a point.
Tony Mowbray's men showed why they are doing so well this season with a consummate, patient performance in front of a packed house at the Riverside. With the likes of Marvin Emnes, Jutkiewicz, Miller and Scott McDonald up front, Boro should be there or thereabouts come next spring.
Astute in spells but over the whole match the Owls were outshone. Michail Antonio provided the brightest sparks and almost created and scored a goal in the opening period. Defensively, Dave Jones's side were a little lax and the second Boro goal was because of a loose pass from Miguel Llera
Sports Mole's man of the match
Emmanuel Ledesma: The Argentinian playmaker didn't manage to get on the scoresheet but was a constant threat and provided the key passes for the first and second goals.
Carl Boyeson himself had a solid game but his assistant should have spotted how far offside Madine was for the Wednesday goal.
Boro: next face fellow high-flyers Cardiff City in Wales in eight days' time.
Wednesday: Wednesday make the short trip South to Nottingham Forest on the same day.
