REPORT: Wednesday 5-0 St Mirren

Wednesday completed their pre-season preparations with an emphatic 5-0 win over Scottish Championship side St Mirren at Hillsborough.

Goals from Vincent Sasso, Atdhe Nuhiu (2), Lewis McGugan and Marnick Vermijl gave the Owls a confidence boost ahead of the visit of Bristol City next weekend.

Wednesday went ahead after 21 minutes when Frenchman Sasso reacted first to a Ross Wallace corner and stabbed home.

The Owls doubled their lead before the half hour when Scotsman Wallace’s centre was met by the head of Austrian giant Nuhiu.

It was 3-0 before the break when last season’s loanee McGugan curled in a terrific free kick after being felled on the edge of the box.

Nuhiu doubled his tally just after half time when he scored from a Liam Palmer cross and it was high fives all round when full back Vermijl rifled home a stunning strike in the 83rd minute.
