Sheffield Wednesday 0-1 Hull City: Jarrod Bowen stars again as Tigers’ key man condemns promotion chasing Owls to a third straight defeat

  • Jarrod Bowen scored his 17th goal in 27 appearances for Hull City this season
  • Tigers go level with Sheffield Wednesday who have lost three straight games
  • Both sides on 39 points and a point outside the Championship play-off spots 

Conjecture surrounds Jarrod Bowen’s future but he again provided Hull City with a touch of class that proved too good for another Championship defence.

The £20million-rated attacking midfielder struck a fine winning goal in the 61st minute to lift Grant McCann’s side to the brink of the play-off places.

In a match full of the endless industry and graft that so typifies the Championship, some genuine inspiration was needed and Bowen delivered by sweeping home George Honeyman’s left-wing cross with a sweetly-struck left-foot shot from 10 yards.

FACT BOX TITLE

Sheff Wed: Dawson, Iorfa, Lees, Borner, Fox, Reach (Murphy 64), Hutchinson, Bannan, Harris, Winnall (Rhodes 60), Nuhiu (Fletcher 45)

Subs not used: Lee, Pelupessy, Odubajo, Wildsmith

Booked: Bannan, Borner 

Hull: Long, Pennington, Burke, De Wijs, Lichaj, Irvine, Batty, Bowen, Honeyman (Da Silva Lopes 72), Grosicki (Lewis-Potter 79), Eaves (Bowler 80)

Subs not used: Tafazolli, Ingram, McKenzie, Fleming

Booked: Grosicki

Goals: Bowen 61 

Referee: Jeremy Simpson (Lancashire)

Attendance: 24,842 

McCann has frequently stated that Bowen, who now has 17 goals and five assists this season, is not for sale in January, despite a whole host of top flight clubs keeping an eye on his exploits.

Aston Villa, Newcastle, Southampton and Brighton have all been linked with the 23-year-old who is widely regarded as one of the finest talents outside of the Premier League.

Whether or not Hull choose to cash in on their star man remains to be seen, but keeping him until the summer at least could hold the key to their promotion dream.

This win lifted them level on points with Sheffield Wednesday, who slipped to their third straight defeat as the dismal prospect of a potential points deduction hangs over them.

The Owls were charged by the Football League in November over the sale of their stadium to owner Dejphon Chansiri to avoid breaking spending rules.

They have emerged as a respected force under Garry Monk this season but back-to-back losses at the hands of Stoke and Cardiff over Christmas knocked confidence and they were booed off at the end here.

In the eighth minute, the Owls’ midfield fulcrum Barry Bannan fired just wide before Sam Winnall failed to hit the target from a left-wing cross.

In the 13th minute, Hull should have led when defender Matthew Pennington failed to connect with Kamil Grosicki’s left-wing corner when unmarked at the far post.

Owls midfielder Adam Reach then saw a fine right-wing cross cleared before he spurned a decent opening moments later, scuffing his shot from a low, left-wing cross.

While Hull threatened on the counter-attack, Wednesday came agonisingly close in the 35th minute.

Atdhe Nuhiu reached the right-hand byline and cut the ball back to Kadeem Harris, whose low right-foot shot was kept out by a combination of Pennington and goalkeeper George Long.

Monk replaced Nihiu with Steven Fletcher at half-time and within four minutes of his introduction he hit a post after Winnall’s header was saved.

Harris then cut inside before blazing wildly over the crossbar and Hull snatched victory shortly after the hour mark as Bowen rifled home Honeyman’s low delivery.

Fletcher fired wide in response for the Owls but Hull held on for a win which left them firmly in the promotion picture – and no doubt gained Bowen several more admirers.
