SHEFFIELD WED: 1, ARSENAL: 0.

 

Belgian play maker Marc Degryse took Sheffield Wednesday a step closer to Premiership safety by clinching victory over European challengers Arsenal at Hillsborough.

Wednesday, with only two wins from their last eight outings, desperately needed a victory to avoid being dragged into the pack of clubs scrambling to avoid the drop.

And Degryse, a £1.5 million summer signing from Anderlecht, provided the crucial 61st minute winner to claim the vital points and dent Arsenal's hopes of UEFA Cup qualification.
