Bristol beaten on Sunday
Sheffield Wednesday will enter the international break in the top 6 thanks to a fine away win at Bristol City on Sunday.
The Owls won 2-1 with all the goals coming in the second half to record their 3rd away win of the season.
Bristol edged a largely uneventful first half, hitting the post early on but Wednesday, who lost Steven Fletcher within the first 20 minutes due to injury, grew into the game and went close just before half-time when a low drive from Adam Reach squirmed out of play off the keeper for a corner.
Jos Luhukay's side started the second half with far more intent and were denied inside the first five minutes when Bannan's effort was saved. On 64 minutes the home keeper could do nothing to deny Wednesday however as the City defence failed to deal with a ball over the top and Lucas Joao guided the ball past the oncoming stopper into the bottom corner of the goal.
Within two minutes Joao doubled up as Onomah slid a pass into him on the edge of the box and the Portuguese striker cut inside and fired in a powerful low drive. At that stage Wednesday were comfortable and had they chosen better options in the ten minutes that followed they could have put the game out of sight.
With 10 minutes to go the home side were given a lifeline when Palmer gave away possession near the touchline and O'Dowda advanced into the area where he was clumsily fouled. Taylor fired the penalty past Dawson down the middle of the goal to make it 2-1.
Having seen their side lose a two-goal lead at home to West Brom in midweek the Owls fans will have felt nervous about seeing this one out, more so when 7 minutes of injury time were announced but the home side failed to trouble the Wednesday back line too much more and the three points were safe.
Wednesday now have 19 points from 12 games and face 4th-placed Middlesbrough at Hillsborough when the Championship action returns in two weeks time.
