Sheffield Wednesday player ratings v QPR: Nuhiu rescues himself and Sasso

Sheffield Wednesday were held to a 1-1 draw by Queens Park Rangers at Hillsborough, but who were their best players on the night?

Keiren Westwood 6/10 - Was well beaten by Daniel Tozser's clean strike and had no other saves to make.

Jack Hunt 6/10 - The goal came from his side initially, but should still have been dealt with better than it was.

Tom Lees 7/10 - Is already back to the level he was at prior to his injury. The only thing he can improve upon really is his partner.

Vincent Sasso 5/10 - It was from his poor clearance that Tozser scored. He then gave away a free-kick in a dangerous position and mistimed a header with no QPR player around him on half-way, leading to a chance. 

Daniel Pudil 7/10 - Nuhiu's finish may have been deft but it was Pudil's cross which did all the work. He also provided most of the Owls' width after switching to three up front.

Ross Wallace 7/10 - With Fernando Forestieri missing, Wednesday looked to Wallace as their main source of final-third creativity. A few of the Scot's crosses fell below his usual high standards, though Joao failed to make pay a superb delivery at the death.

Kieran Lee 6/10 - Was denied what appeared to be a clear penalty late on but should have scored with an earlier chance.

Barry Bannan 7/10 - Quieter than usual, but still at the heart of Wednesday's play at both ends of the pitch.

Aiden McGeady 6/10 - Has more tricks than Dynamo but is ultimately less effective than Forestieri. Still not fit enough to do a full 90 but, as with Hooper when he first arrived, you suspect there's more to come from him. 

Gary Hooper 7/10 - Had few opportunities to score himself, but turned one half-chance into a penalty with fine footwork in the box. Was moved out wide after Joao came on but showed his quality once more to create a chance which Nuhiu and Lee both should have done better with.

Atdhe Nuhiu 7/10 - Side-footed his penalty straight into the hands of Alex Smithies, but the mishap seemed to spark him into life. The Austrian redeemed himself with the equaliser and was untouchable in the air as Wednesday began to go long.


Lucas Joao 6/10 - Added energy to the Owls' play if not the quality to go with it. Looked hungry though, and got stuck in - something he's not always keen to do.
