Adeniran brace helps Sheff Wed stroll to victory
Two goals from Dennis Adeniran helped Sheffield Wednesday beat Accrington Stanley 3-0, with Liam Palmer also on target.
The result boosts Wednesday’s automatic promotion hopes after ending a run of six games without a win.
After Will Vaulks had an early effort comfortably saved by keeper Lukas Jensen, the home side took an 11th-minute lead when a cross was headed out to Adeniran, who found the net with a volley from around 12 yards out.
Wednesday’s Reece James put a glancing header wide before skipper Sean McConville went close for the visitors with a free-kick which clipped the top of the bar.
Adeniran added his and Wednesday’s second goal of the afternoon a minute after the re-start, firing into the net from close range after Callum Paterson’s header was blocked following a Barry Bannan corner.
After Lee Gregory headed wide and Tyreeq Bakinson had a shot saved by Jensen, Palmer (72) rounded off the scoring with a fine finish following a great through ball from Bannan.
