Sheffield Wednesday has a comfortable 4-1 win over Hartlepool in the Johnstone Paint Trophy last night to move into the Northern Semi Final leaving them two games away from a lucrative Wembley final which would be a big help as the club fights to stave off administration.
The star of the show was Neil Mellor who hit a hat trick in front of a fairly impressive 10,909 crowd. They will now join Carlisle,Tranmere and Huddersfield in the Semi Finals.
