Amazing feeling

19 August 2012


Owls defender Reda Johnson has described the feeling of scoring a last minute equaliser at Derby as ‘amazing’.

Trailing 2-1 heading into the last minute, Johnson was in the right place at the right time to head Wednesday level in front of 6,000 joyous Owls fans behind the goal at Pride Park.

Johnson said: “It was amazing to score in the last minute and I was really pleased for the team that we came back because that’s what we deserved. 

“We will look back on that game as a good point gained but we feel we could maybe have gone on to win the game.

“When you score an important goal like that it feels amazing and you just want to go and celebrate with the fans.

“It’s always great to make the fans happy like that because they give us so much support and I’m really pleased they left the game happy.”

Wednesday fell two goals behind early in the game but Reda was delighted by the way his  team mates fought their way back into the game.

He added: “The first half didn’t start how we wanted it to which was disappointing after what happened in the Oldham game.

“So it was a bad start but we reacted very well and got ourselves back in the game and the longer the game went on, the more we were growing in confidence.

“In the second half we were keeping the ball better and we have learned lessons from that game.”
