The Owls Reda Johnson's first-half goal gave us a 1-0 win against Leyton Orient to maintain their unbeaten home record this season.
Tom Clarke went close to giving Orient an 11th-minute lead when he headed against the bar after meeting Leon McSweeney's cross.
But the only goal of the game came in the 19th minute when Ben Marshall touched a free-kick to Chris Lines, whose cross was headed in by Johnson at the far post.
Ryan Lowe threatened to add a second soon after when he was free inside the area but keeper Ben Alnwick got down smartly to block.
The impressive Marshall had an effort deflected over and a strike from Johnson was disallowed after the referee spotted an infringement. Lines put a free-kick on target which was easily saved, while Orient's David Mooney volleyed wide in the closing stages of the first-half.
