BPF error costs Owls victory

Sheffield Wednesday were in touching distance of a return to winning ways on Saturday, only for a poor goalkeeping error in the last minute of their match at Ipswich Town to cost them two points.

The Owls led through a fine first-half strike from Adeniran and although it was a far from convincing performance, Ipswich themselves didn’t look like finding a breakthrough, until they were gifted a goal.

Peacock-Farrell had the ball in his hands with the players moving up field, all except for Bonne however, the striker was lurking behind the keeper, waiting for a mistake which duly came. Peacock-Farrell failed to check his penalty area before dropping the ball at his feet, Bonne nipped in, took it wide of the keeper and cut the ball back for Fraser to square to Chaplin who tapped the ball into the empty goal.

It was an embarrassing goal to concede and a third error in three straight league games from the on-loan Burnley keeper who had started the game so well.

Wednesday are now four games without a win in League One and travel to table topping Wigan in midweek.
