Classy Swans glide by hapless Owls

The Swans took the lead with only five minutes on the clock when Pratley beat the offside trap to slot home and he doubled his tally before the break when his powerful finish ended a fine move.

And it was 2-0 five minutes before the break when Andrea Orlandi set Nathan Dyer free and he centred for Pratley, who met the cross with a low and powerful shot from 12 yards out to bag his fourth of the campaign.

Wednesday barely looked like registering, with Darren Purse’s header their best effort.

The Owls are now winless in the last 10 having lost the last six and face the harsh reality of relegation if they do not make drastic improvements, while Swansea stay in play-off contention.
