Capital One Cup round up: Owls beat Oldham as Forest edge past Fleetwood
23:20 GMT, 13 August 2012
Sheffield Wednesday produced a fantastic second-half fightback after going two goals down to see off Oldham 4-2 in the first round of the Capital One Cup.
The npower Championship side were two goals down after just 26 minutes as Jordan Slew marked his debut with a strike from close range and Jean Yves Mvoto put the League One side firmly in control with a fine header.
But Jermaine Johnson and Chris O'Grady – both former Oldham players – rescued them after the interval, the latter bagging a brace before Michail Antonio completed the win.

Graham Westley left the Deepdale dugout to a standing ovation after his new-look Preston team booked their place in the second round with a 2-0 defeat of Huddersfield.
Westley endured a troubled time after taking over at Preston last season but saw his side make the perfect start to the new campaign when Jack King headed home after 29 minutes.
Nicky Wroe, a summer signing from Shrewsbury, then doubled the lead five minutes before the break to help the League One side into the next round.
Pushed all the way: Dexter Blackstock scored as Nottingham Forest saw off Fleetwood
A second half goal from Dexter Blackstock gave Nottingham Forest a narrow victory over Football League newcomers Fleetwood Town.
Blackstock earned his side a passage into the second round with the only goal of the game after 57 minutes.
The experienced Andy Reid produced a superb delivery from the left which was met by the unmarked striker at the far post.
His first header was well saved by Scott Davies but the rebound fell perfectly into his path and he stroked the ball into the empty net from close range.
