United dominated the early exchanges but the visitors snatched the lead six minutes before half-time when Bolder raced in at the far post to head home Steve Watson’s cross.

Michael Tonge and Stephen Quinn missed chances to equalise but the Owls stunned the home frans for a second time in the 54th minute when Bolder bundled in his second after Frank Songo’o’s initial effort was parried by Paddy Kenny.

Billy Sharp put United back in it just after the hour when his shot on the turn was deflected beyond Lee Grant in the visitors’ goal and Beattie broke the Owls resistance once and for all five minuets from time when his superb free-kick flew into the top left-hand corner.
