Sheffield Wednesday v Blackburn Rovers...How they rated

This Is Lancashire: Sheffield Wednesday v Blackburn Rovers...How they rated Sheffield Wednesday v Blackburn Rovers...How they rated

Paul Wheelock rates Rovers in the draw at Hillsborough...

PAUL ROBINSON 8 Could do little about Wednesday’s first and third goals and made two – one breathtaking – first-half saves.

MICHAEL KEANE 6 Scorer was outpaced for the Owls’ second goal and had an ambitious pass intercepted in the lead up to their third.

GRANT HANLEY 6 The skipper was given a rough time of it by Atdhe Nuhiu, the home side’s 6ft 6in battering ram and two-goal hero.

MATT KILGALLON 7 Was desperately unfortunate to see his brave block rebound off Jason Lowe for Wednesday’s last-gasp leveller.

TOMMY SPURR 6 Inadvertently set-up Jordan Rhodes’ opener but was beaten by Michail Antonio for his former side’s first equaliser.

TOM CAIRNEY 6 Had a hand in Rovers’ first and third goals but was unable exert his usual influence on a very difficult pitch.

JASON LOWE 7 Made a vital tackle in his own area before setting up Keane to score with a brilliant cross that begged to be converted.

LEE WILLIAMSON 8 On a horrible surface and against a direct outfit, Rovers needed battlers and the in-form midfielder certainly did that.

CRAIG CONWAY 8 Put Rovers back in front with a well-placed 30-yard shot and was their biggest threat in the second half on the counter.

RUDY GESTEDE 7 The Owls deployed Sam Hutchinson in front of the back four to deal with his threat but the striker still caused problems.

JORDAN RHODES 6 Top-scorer netted one and set up one but wasted two opportunities – one gilt-edged – in the second half.

Substitutions LUKE VARNEY for Rhodes 90

Subs not used
Simon Eastwood, Todd Kane, Josh King, Markus Olsson, Chris Taylor, Liam Feeney.

Wednesday line-up
Chris Kirkland, Lewis Buxton, Oguchi Onyewu, Miguel Llera, Joe Mattock (Jeremy Helan 59), Sam Hutchinson (Benik Afobe 79), Michail Antonio, Liam Palmer (Caolan Lavery 59), Kieran Lee, Chris Maguire, Atdhe Nuhiu. Subs not used: Damian Martinez, Jermaine Johnson, Giles Coke, Martin Taylor.

Man of the match
LEE WILLIAMSON
Threw tackles in and won headers all over the pitch, the combative midfielder gave it his absolute everything.

Villain
MICHAIL ANTONIO
Rovers had trouble containing the Wednesday winger, who set up two goals, hit the bar and forced Paul Robinson into a wonder save.
