Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 Rochdale

Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 Rochdale

Superb first-half long-range strikes from Jaden Brown, Fisayo Dele-Bahsiru and Dennis Adeniran saw Sheffield Wednesday beat Rochdale 3-0 to progress to the third round of the Carabao Cup.

After Callum Paterson struck a long-range effort, Brown found the net with a fine 25-yard effort from a corner in the 23rd minute.

A rare attack from the visitors saw James Ball try an effort from distance that went wide.

Dele-Bashiru matched Brown’s effort with an equally impressive strike from around 25 yards to extend Wednesday’s lead nine minutes before the break.

And in the 44th minute Adeniran scored arguably the best goal of the night when he collected the ball in the center circle and raced through the middle before beating Cieran Slicker with an unstoppable on-the-run shot.

The home side looked content to build on their lead in the second half, with Rochdale enjoying plenty of possession, but did not pose a real attacking threat.

Wednesday had the chance to score a fourth when Sylla Sow squared Paterson inside the box but Ethan Brierley did well to cut past the striker to make a vital clearance.
