Atdhe Nuhiu bagged his fourth goal in three games against Middlesbrough to help Sheffield Wednesday to a 2-0 Sky Bet Championship victory at Hillsborough.

The Austrian striker, who scored twice at the Riverside earlier in the season and the winner in the home game against Boro last year, converted a 52nd-minute penalty to open the scoring.

On-loan Manchester United striker Will Keane headed in the second three minutes later to seal the points and inflict a second defeat in three games on Wednesday's high-flying opponents.

Goalkeeper calls for attacker to be jailed

Sheffield Wednesday Chris Kirkland has told the Sun newspaper that "the thug who attacked me must be jailed for years."

The former England goalkeeper, 31, was hit in the face by a pitch intruder after Leeds had equalised in the 1-1 draw at Hillsborough.

He told the Sun: “It has to be years in jail, not months.

“People must be punished by the courts for this behaviour - and the football authorities must take firm action too.”
