Sheffield Wednesday 3-2 Bristol City

14 Sep

Kieran Lee


Kieran Lee’s goal was his first since last season’s Championship play-offs

Kieran Lee scored a stoppage-time winner as Sheffield Wednesday came from two goals down to beat Bristol City.

On-loan Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham scored two first-half headers to put the Robins firmly in control.

Steven Fletcher nodded in to pull one back but Sam Hutchinson was soon sent off for fouling Marlon Pack in the box.

Lee Tomlin’s penalty hit the post and Gary O’Neil was red-carded for City before Barry Bannan levelled from range and Lee slotted in to steal the points.

After kick-off at Hillsborough had been delayed by 15 minutes because of torrential rain and a thunderstorm, it was the visitors who started the better.

Abraham, 18, first leapt highest to power in O’Neil’s looping cross, before nodding home his eighth goal in nine games after Josh Brownhill’s drive was parried into his path by Keiren Westwood.

The Owls, who had only scored five in six league matches prior to the game, improved after the break and halved the deficit when Fletcher headed Fernando Forestieri’s corner into the net.

Drama soon unfolded when Hutchinson was dismissed after slipping and bringing down Pack, only for Tomlin’s subsequent spot-kick to cannon off the post, leading to O’Neil receiving a second booking for a foul in the immediate aftermath.

Bannan then equalised with a 30-yard drive that burst through the hands of goalkeeper Richard O’Donnell, and Lee showed composure to sidestep a defender and fire inside the far post to earn Wednesday only their second win over their opponents in 12 attempts, moving them above the Robins into ninth.
