Jordan Rhodes’ last minute winner secured a sixth win in nine games for Sheffield on Wednesday as Bournemouth lost their fourth straight championship game

Callum Paterson gave the Owls a well-deserved lead in the first half when he pounced on a poor pass from Jack Stacey across the box and his weak stab somehow crept under Asmir Begovic

But Bournemouth improved a lot in the second half and Junior Stanislas hit the penalty spot after Sam Surridge was overthrown by Sam Hutchinson

But in pursuit of a winner, the hosts scored at break on Wednesday when Rhodes headed Kadeem Harris’s cross home from the right at the far post

The win climbs from the bottom to third place on Wednesday, three points ahead of Birmingham City, which is just above the relegation zone, while Bournemouth remains in sixth place

Wednesday could have been 2-0 in the first 10 minutes if Begovic hadn’t made two good saves up play and then toppled Barry Bannan’s powerful attempt with his left foot from the edge of the box over the bar

The Cherries best chance half came when Arnaut Danjuma’s attempt from 12 yards was well blocked by Sam Hutchinson while returning David Brooks narrowed from distance before taking the lead on Wednesday

Jason Tindall made three changes at halftime with Stacey, Dominic Solanke and Jack Wilshere, who made his first league start since joining the Cherries All were eliminated when Adam Smith, Jefferson Lerma and Surridge came and went. The hosts have improved their game

Surridge was thrown for penalty after a long ball over the top of Wednesday’s defense, and Lewis Cook had a deflected shot from Keiren Westwood shortly after leveling
Brooks forced a good save from close range from Westwood, 15 minutes after a long ball over the top, and the Cherries were outraged with seven minutes remaining when Chey Dunkley was booked instead of referee Andy Woolmer after falling off the pitch Surridge to be put with the striker seems to be past the goal

Wednesday took advantage of Rhodes’ late winners but it was almost canceled in stoppage time when Massimo Luongo swung an aerial shot at a clearance and shot Lerma out of the box, but Westwood did well to beat the strain away

“We’re going through a really difficult moment right now You can see that many players are lacking in confidence

“I think we have some players under the age of 23, and I think if you concede a goal like the first that you can’t really plan or explain, these are almost high points where some of these guys are right now

“In the second half, I felt like we came out and performed a lot better, but with Ben Pearson and a few more days of training and Shane Long these characters are sure to help with the experience they have us “

“We thought about the first half, if we played aggressively and positively, we could get on them, they had a bad run themselves, we thought we might cause them some problems and I thought we did” / p>

“We probably should have scored more than one goal at halftime and we had to learn in the second half because they have good players”

“They were under a bit of pressure, unfortunately we conceded one, but to show the character would come back in the end, Kads (Kadeem Harris) wasn’t on the team and he was able to come and put a great one”Ball into the penalty area for Rhodes on the other stick, I’m thrilled”
