Frustration continues

17 November 2012

Dave Jones reflected on another afternoon of frustration and says the Owls must take their chances if they are to climb the Championship table.

After turning in an impressive performance at Nottingham Forest, Wednesday went down to a Miguel Llera own goal that ensured Jones’ men would travel back to Sheffield with nothing to show from a spirited display in the Midlands.

But the Owls were once again made to rue their profligacy in the final third and Jones said:

“I am starting to sound like a broken record but what more do we have to do?

“We have created plenty of chances, we have had them pinned back but if we don’t score the goals, we don’t win the games.

“And we should have had the game sewn up long before they scored and when they did score, it was an own goal.

“But that’s the kind of luck we are getting. If it’s not headed, the ball goes straight into the goalkeeper’s arms.

“I’m not going to blame Miguel for that. We have defended really, really well throughout the game and we are undone by an own goal.

“We have been beaten by a Nottingham Forest side that has aspirations for the Premiership but we have matched them and played well.

“But we are missing the edge and composure in front of goal.”

Jones tinkered with his tactics for the City Ground clash and insisted that his side will continue to create chances irrespective of the formation.

He added: “It doesn’t matter what formation we play, we will create chances.

“They are a great bunch of lads, they work so hard, and they are very frustrated in the dressing room right now because they know that we are not that far away.

“It’s that finishing touch, that composure in the final third and we will continue the search to bring someone else in.”
