For the ninth time this season the Owls failed to hold on for three points after taking the lead in a Championship game, making it 23 points dropped from winning positions for the 2020/21 campaign to date.

But despite another defeat – leaving them 23rd with 11 games to play – Darren Moore’s opposite number insists that Wednesday can stay up, saying that he’s crossing his fingers for SWFC.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Farke wished the Owls well, saying, “I’m quite confident that they have a good chance to stay in this league - they have the quality to do this, and fingers crossed for them.”

Meanwhile, the game’s match-winner, Todd Cantwell, also gave credit to Wednesday, saying his side showed character to turn things around.

AS quoted by the club’s official website, the midfielder said, “I think they started well; it wasn’t just us not being able to get started. They were compact, them getting an early goal didn’t help, but I think the second half it was just the most important bit of showing character and a bit of heart to build on the foundations of pressing high. Ultimately, we managed to turn the game around.

“They had a bit of a gameplan and scoring early probably helped them a lot, so it’s a real credit to everyone in the changing room for turning it around.”
