Former Championship boss Neil Redfearn has insisted Sheffield Wednesday manager Danny Rohl’s decision to completely change his front three in the game at Blackburn Rovers on Sunday was a masterstroke.


Wednesday scored a big 3-1 win at Ewood Park on Sunday to give their Championship survival hopes a massive boost.


Rohl changed his front three completely over the course of the game through his substitutions and Redfearn believes that was a stroke of genius from the Sheffield Wednesday manager.



He insisted that the German showed his mettle as a manager and his players just completely controlled the game to get a vital three points at this stage of the season.


The former Leeds boss said on talkSPORT 2 after the game: “To be fair to Danny Rohl, I think he came into his own.



“I think his substitutes were made at the right time. Changing the front three was a masterstroke because it gave Wednesday energy at 3-1 up.


“And they just were relentless and had a vice-like grip on the game, they just wouldn’t let go.”



The win lifted Sheffield Wednesday out of the relegation zone with just two games left in the regular Championship season.


They will next be in action at Hillsborough on Saturday when they will host fifth-placed West Brom.


Sheffield Wednesday will finish the season with a trip to the Stadium of Light to take on Sunderland on the final day of the season.
