Result: Sheffield Wednesday beat Wolverhampton Wanderers to end winless run

Sheffield Wednesday come back from a goal down to hammer Wolverhampton Wanderers 4-1 in the Championship for their first win in six games.

Sheffield Wednesday won for the first time in six games with a 4-1 triumph over Wolverhampton Wanderers this afternoon.

Wolves travelled to Hillsborough with only one win to their name in seven, but started the brighter and went in front on the quarter-hour mark.

Benik Afobe scored for the second game in a row with a penalty after Matt Doherty had been fouled in the area.

Wednesday hit back soon after with a penalty of their own that Fernando Forestieri converted after Lucas Joao was felled in the box.

The Owls then took the lead for the first time and again it was Forestieri on target as the Italian's close-range effort took a deflection before finding the net.

The momentum was with the home side and they continued to pile forward and went close on multiple occasions to scoring a third before half time.

A third did arrive on the hour mark through Daniel Pudil before substitute Gary Hooper put further gloss on the result in the final minute.

Victory moves Wednesday up to seventh within a point of the playoff places, while Wolves are down in 17th.
