Sheffield Wednesday claim rare win over Blackburn

Published on: 02 December 2023

Bailey-Tye Cadamarteri put Sheffield Wednesday in front against Blackburn Rovers with his first goal in his fourth senior appearance

Bailey-Tye Cadamarteri scored his first senior goal to help Championship strugglers Sheffield Wednesday to only their second win of the season against a frustrated Blackburn Rovers at a freezing Hillsborough.

Teenager Cadamarteri's fine early finish from Josh Windass' cutback gave the Owls a deserved lead which they held with reasonable comfort in the first half.

Leopold Wahlstedt then denied Cadamarteri a second before Rovers belatedly found their stride.

And it was no surprise it was Sammie Szmodics who eventually levelled with a powerful back-post header as the Championship's leading scorer notched his 14th goal of the season just past the hour.

Despite Rovers looking most likely to score a second, Wednesday's resilience was rewarded when half-time substitute Marvin Johnson drilled into the corner to restore their lead.

Rovers boss Jon Dahl Tomasson was then sent off after protesting too much in the aftermath of the goal before Windass' fine solo breakaway goal in the last minute put the tin lid on the Dane's difficult afternoon.

Wednesday stay bottom, despite the precious three points, as Rovers miss the chance to move into the play-off places after their first away defeat since October.
