Sheffield Wednesday hosted Ipswich Town at Hillsborough over the weekend and Lucas Joao’s solo show in front of the opposition’s goal returned all three points to us as we registered back to back wins in the week.

Hopes had been high at making it six points from six following the midweek win over Millwall, and Joao’s brace ensured just that after we failed to win in our first three attempts in the Championship season of 2018/19.

Ipswich did hit back through Toto Nsiala to level the scores up at one apiece, but once he saw red for a hefty challenge on Fernando Forestieri, we were worthy winners in the end, edging the telling stats and Joao also struck the woodwork so the scoreline may potentially have been bigger.

Taking to social media following the game a few fans were torn on whether Ipswich deserved the red card, albeit acknowledging it obviously helped us get our noses in front but Liam Palmer was also a stand out for praise following his showing.

Barry Bannan and Forestieri took their obligatory praise, but the win should certainly give the group a further shot of confidence now as we continue to look forward and not backwards after our more struggling start to the season.

  • Nsiala sending off a complete joke. Never in a month of Sundays. It spoilt a very good game. Those saying they saw the studs showing on video are having a laugh. I have watched it loads of times and Nsiala gets the ball first , Forestieri follows through onto him and the view of the contact , on video ,is blocked by number 20 Adam Reach.
