Wednesday turned in a good display at the home of the league leaders but they will be without one if their most important players for the next two matches after Fernando Forestieri's second successive sending off for simulation.

Forestieri went down under a challenge from Michael Dawson but referee Tim Robinson deemed the forward to gave dived and gave a second yellow card - a decision Dom described as 'harsh'.

He added: "That's two red cards in back-to-back games, meaning he's going to miss the next two games - at home to Rotherham followed by Brighton away. That's a huge loss for Wednesday, it leaves them with a huge hole to fill because Forestieri was probably their most creative player."

He added: "That shouldn't detract from what I thought was a very workmanlike, good performance from Wednesday."
