Loan Watch: Wickham in action

by Ashley Houghton

Striker plays full 90 for Owls.

Connor Wickham played 90 minutes for Sheffield Wednesday as the Owls lost their first away game since early December at the hands of promotion chasing Watford.

Fernando Forestieri scored both goals for the Hornets after Michail Antonio had given Wednesday a first-half lead.

Meanwhile, Ahmed Elmohamdy’s Hull lost ground on Watford with a 4-2 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Former Sunderland striker Kevin Phillips scored a hat-trick as Ian Holloway’s men closed the gap on second-place to just two points.

Elsewhere, Jordan Pickford was prevented from making his third appearance for Alfreton Town as the Reds game with Barrow fell victim to heavy fog in Nottinghamshire.
