‘Today the best form of defence was attack. That’s what we tried to do’.

‘Lee’s got a calf injury. To lose our talisman like that, it’s a bitter blow.

‘He’s got a scan on Monday. We’ll know more next week.

Jack Hunt also injured.

‘Our medical department is very busy at the moment.

On the stoppages: ‘It just kills the momentum

‘I said to the players: ‘That’s what you get in this league’.

‘We need that ruthless mindset. Those (Paterson’s second-half chance) are gilt-edged chances. It’s the final 20 per cent’.

‘A really frusrating game. We wanted to win the game today.

‘The stats stack up all in our favour.

‘The frustrating thing for me was how the game played out.’

First booking for time-wasting

...Goes to John Akinde after 90 minutes.

That’s it, 1-1 FT.

Reaction to come.

Another Corbeanu chance

The ball falls his way on the edge of the box but he floats a volley just past the far post.

Deserves a goal for his efforts today and almost had a memorable one there.

Sylla Sow replaces Olamide Shodipo.

A cross-cum-shot evades everyone and is heading for the bottom corner before it’s hooked clear.

Fifteen minutes for the Owls to find a winner.

Bannan’s fierce low strike is initially kept out but Cumming but the rebound falls to Kamberi, who has an easy finish from four yards.
