Bolton Wanderers vs Sheffield Wednesday: Darren Moore reacts after Owls drop points late on

Sheffield Wednesday may not have a better chance to improve their away form when they take on Bolton this afternoon.

Saturday, 9th April 2022, 5:27 pm

The Trotters are without their captain Ricardo Santos, former Owls favourite Kieran Lee and January signing Kyle Dempsey.

The Owls, who have six wins from 19 away games, are unbeaten in their last five matches.

‘There’s loads of football to be played.’

‘It’s disappointing to lose it that way in the last minute today.

‘I don’t blame the strikers. Other players had chances to score as well.’

‘I thought it was a dominant display from start to finish. We did enough today to win the game, that’s the disappointing thing.’

Says the Owls ‘left their shooting boots in Sheffield’.

A bit of a sickener for Wednesday but Bolton will feel they deserved at least a point, which was probably a fair reflection of the game.
