Jack Clarke scores a penalty at Sheffield WednesdayJack Clarke's penalty at Sheffield Wednesday was his sixth goal in his last five appearances for Sunderland

Sunderland moved up to fourth in the Championship as they dismantled winless Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Dan Ballard met Alex Pritchard's inswinging corner to power home an early close-range header unchallenged.

And it was 2-0 after just eight minutes when the Championship's top scorer Jack Clarke was allowed to cut across the face of the 18-yard box and lash home his sixth of the season inside the right-hand post.

Clarke heaped more pressure on Owls boss Xisco Munoz when he tucked a 30th-minute penalty into the bottom corner - his sixth goal in five games - after Bambo Diaby had pulled down Mason Burstow.
