Ross Wallace set up all three headed goals as Sheffield Wednesday saw off Fulham at Hillsborough.

Fulham goalkeeper Andy Lonergan had already done well to keep out an early Barry Bannan header before Fernando Forestieri nodded Wednesday ahead.

Jamie O’Hara levelled from distance, before Tom Lees’ downward header restored the Owls’ lead.

Michael Turner headed in off the bar to make it 3-1 but Tom Cairney pulled one back to ensure a nervy finale.

Forestieri marked his home debut with Wednesday’s first, climbing above Jazz Richards to open the scoring, before O’Hara equalised from 20 yards.

Lonergan kept out an Alex Lopez header but defender Lees scored from the resulting corner and fellow centre-back Turner extended the advantage from Wallace’s free-kick after the interval.

Cairney headed in O’Hara’s cross to make it 3-2 and Keiren Westwood denied Dan Burn in stoppage time to secure the three points.
