Wednesday made it two wins from as many domestic friendly matches as goals from Lewis Buxton and Gary Madine saw them to a 2-1 victory over Rotherham United.

Over 5,000 fans were in attendance at the Don Valley Stadium for what was a Millers home match, although Wednesdayites outnumbered the ‘home’ support.

They got a win for their money as Lewis Buxton broke the deadlock just after half-time before Gary Madine doubled the advantage. Adam Le Fondre pulled a goal back for the npower League Two side but it was too little, too late.

Owls boss Gary Megson named a strong starting line-up for the clash, arguably the strongest he has available at the moment. Irish striker Padraig Amond, on trial with the club, was amongst the substitutes and made his debut in the blue and white stripes for the second half.

The result will leave Owls fans in good spirits ahead of Saturday’s home friendly clash against Leeds United.
