9:44pm

Ince was booked deep in added time as Albion looked to pass their way out of trouble.

Final: Wednesday 1 Albion 0

9:34pm

Albion had a bright spell but LuaLua's corner failed to beat the first defender.

Then there was heartbrak for Albion as Bruno's poor first touch let in the hosts.

BEST took the ball wide and rolled a shot across Kuszcaak - and just inside the far post.

 

9:27pm

Albion sent on March for Buckley

9:19pm

Suddenly Maguire got Afobe straight through the defence. The sub bore down on goal but Kuszczak stood strong to block his volley - and Palmer curled the rebound just over.

Albion sent on LuaLua for Rodriguez.

9:14pm

Albion got Rodriguez away from the offisde trap but Kirkland came out of his area and just got there to clear.

Then there were penalty claims from the visitors as Andrews went down in the box - but play was waved on.

Wednesday sent on Afobe for Helan.

 

9:10pm

A first-time pass by Andrews, volleyed with his right instep, sent Lingard away down the left. Rodriguez got up in support but Lingard opted to cut inside and his low right-foot shot was straight at Kirkland, who held it.

9:05pm

Wednesday's fans - and their famous band - tried to lift their side and Upson had to head away two crosses in quick succession.

9:00pm

Then Albion's neat passing created a golden chance. Forster-Caskey sent Buckley through but he was denied in the one-on-one by Kirkland.

8:59pm

Good ball-winning by Ince gave Lingard a chance to break away down the right. But his low ball in was cut out before it could reach Rodriguez.

8:53pm

Albion dealt with a corner needlessly conceded by Ward, then saw Helan shoot way over as Wednesday made a fairly bright start to the seocnd half.

Lingard won a flag kick at the other end but Ince's flick seemed to take the ball away from his colleagues.

8:48pm

Wednesday sent on Coke for Hutchinson for the second half.

8:32pm

Buxton went arguably the closest yet for the Owls on 45 minutes when his miscued cross only just cleared the crossbar with Kuszczak back-pedalling, although he seemed to have it covered.

Half: Wednesday 0 Albion 0

8:27pm

Then Buckley produced great skill to outwit Mattock near the corner flag and chip up a cross which just eluded Rodriguez in the middle.

 

 

8:24pm

Albion's first on-target effort - and indeed the first of the contest - was a 25-yard free-kick by Forster-Caskey into the wall..

Bruno went long out of defence with a pass into the path of Lingard, now popping up in the inside right channel. Kirlkland spotted real danger and came out to jus beat the striker to the ball and kick it out of play.

 

 

8:19pm

Wednesday won a couple of midfield tussles to spark an attack. But it ended tamely as Hutchinson's curler sailed way over the bar - and was probably drifting wide as well.

8:11pm

Then Lingard slid in Forster-Caskey down the lelft but his cutback from the byline aimed for Rodriguez was cut out.

Albion's movement and pace in attack were causing their hosts problems.

 

 

 

8:08pm

Albion had a great opening when Mattock's slip let in Buckley down the right.

He cut in and closed in goal with options to shoot or cross.

Buckley looked to roll the ball across goal for a colleague but Loovens slid in to intercept.

8:06pm

Wednesday replied with a cross which Greer headed away in front of goal before Helan volleyed the loose ball across goal and past the far post.

8:05pm

Ince's superb angeld ball sent Buckley away to win a corner off Mattock - and the flag kick so nearly brought them the lead.

Forster-Caskey curled the ball in and Rodriguez rose well but his header hit the bar.

 

7:56pm

Albion would have to keep the ball on the deck in attack. Bruno sent Lingard away down the right and he combined with Buckley before Forster-Caskey fired over from just outside the box.

Lingard had started the game as the central striker with Rodriguez to the left.

The Spaniard wasted a counter attack chance when he tried a shot from 40 yards as Lingard demanded a through ball.

Rodriguez's effort bounced 20 yards wide to the derision of fans in the Kop behind that goal.

7:50pm

Albion had the first free-kick, when Lingard was fouled, but Forster-Caskey swung his delivery straight into the arms of Kirkland.

Wednesday posed more threat as they countered and a dangerous cross was just too high for Best in front of goal.

 

7:45pm

This time a year ago Albion had never won at the Riverside, the DW, the Keepmoat or the Reebok.

They are off at the mark at all those new stadia now.

In fact they have won twice at the Riverside.

So can they end the biggest hoodoo of them all? And without top scorer Leo Ulloa!

The teams are out. Here we go...

I really think the team need to learn how to shoot on target. I've never known so many shots off target. The goals are not that small, Are they.

Half time, and a dour game. Not a shot on target for either team - no surprise there, tight ar5e BHA defence and lack lustre strike force, its all so familiar.

No knee jerk from me for wholesale change, but a quick scan and I reckon only a dozen teams out of 72 in the FL have scored less league goals than us.
There's no doubt a review is needed, but ridiculous calls for the coach's head are not the solution (IMO)

Gutted, did you see Best walk through into the box and put a pea roller past TK to rub salt in the wound! Someone should have taken a yellow card and took him out.
Lucky for us only Ipswich won out of those around us, our system is not working, who cares if we've got the tightest defence, goals win games and we can't score, change the approach please Oscar or the fans will turn on you.
LuaLua to start Saturday if Ulloa is still sick with Buckley and Lingard, Ince, Stevens and Lopez in midfield and put Cms on the bench just in case!
All is not lost, but FFS, Bournmouth are just behind us! 9 games to go and we can't afford to keep dropping points.
We need to rock the house Saturday and get behind the team, 3 away games follow that match and the season could be over before our next home game.
