Sheffield Wednesday fans went for a ride yesterday when they all flooded into the New York Stadium to take on Rotherham. Steve Bruce is still unbeaten as the Owls gaffer, although yesterday he came close to losing that as his late substitute and debutant Dominic Iorfa scored in the 10th minute of added time to make it 2-2.
GOALLLLLLLLL!!! Debut goal for Iorfa who has equalised in the 98th minute for the Owls! #swfcLIVE

The young defender joined the Owls on-loan from Wolves over the January window and the fans had been calling for him to make his debut for a while now. However, they were made to wait until yesterday’s game had gone into injury time when Steve Bruce was forced to introduce the youngster when Jordan Thorniley suffered an injury.
However, whilst the fans will be hoping Thorniley will recover quickly, they couldn’t be more delighted that Iorfa was introduced yesterday. His efforts to get forward and get at the Rotherham defence proved decisive and the fans would have been delighted to have been able to travel back the short journey to Sheffield from Rotherham with a point.

The Owls will be desperate to build on their late equaliser and will be gunning for a win when they face Swansea next Saturday.
