GALLERY | Rovers 1 Sheffield Wednesday 3

20 February 2022

The best photos as Rovers fell to a 3-1 defeat to promotion hopefuls Sheffield Wednesday at the Eco-Power Stadium.

It was a disciplined opening half for Rovers who limited the visitors to very few chances before stringing together an excellent passage of play which eventually saw Kyle Knoyle wiped out in the box and left Dan Gardner to coolly fire home from the penalty spot.

And Rovers started the second period the better side, with Joseph Olowu unable to convert at the back post before Reo Griffiths' cutback was inches from finding Mipo Odubeko for a tap in.

Despite the better play, Sheffield Wednesday substitute Callum Paterson drew the game level with 20 minutes remaining and the visitors should have taken the lead five minutes later, but Jonathan Mitchell's stunning save denied Barry Bannan from the penalty spot.

It was a short reprieve, however, with Sadio Berahino and Bannan getting goals in quick succession to take the match away from Rovers.
