Warnock was discussing one of the few talking points in the game which saw Kenneth Zahore curl into the net in the first half but Wednesday were awarded a free-kick for a foul on young defender Jordan Thorniley.

It's difficult to describe it as a disallowed goal as the whistle had been blown long before Zahore 'scored' and Owls keeper Joe Wildsmith made little attempt to save the well-struck effort.

Nevertheless, Warnock wasn't happy with the decision and felt Zahore had fairly beaten debutant Thorniley to the ball.

"That's a goal, isn't it? said an exasperated Warnock. "That's never a foul in a million years. I don't know what (referees) see. In the olden days they wouldn't have even thought about that being a foul.

"I think he just felt sorry for the defender really because Ken was that strong he just brushed him off."
