Out of luck

29 September 2012

Wednesday manager Dave Jones was disappointed to leave Molineux empty-handed on Saturday.

The Owls had a strong claim for a penalty in the opening minute before conceding what proved the decisive goal on the stroke of half time, as Bakary Sako’s retaken free kick found the back of the net.

Sako had attempted to take a quick free kick which drifted wide of the post and was cautioned for not waiting for the whistle but promptly took full advantage second time around.

Jones said: “We’ve watched the video back and it’s a clear penalty. Michail Antonio has been caught in the area and it should have been given.

“Those are the kind of decisions you need to fall for you when you’re on a run like what we are, but they aren’t at the moment.

“The lads got in at half time with their heads down because of the goal and we had to point out to them what we had done and that we were still well in the game, but those moments do change games.”

Wednesday are back on the road on Tuesday facing Burnley where Jones is hopeful this adverse run of results will come to an end – now six straight defeats.

He continued: “We really are not that far away. If we are honest, it was our final ball and decision making in the final third that let us down today.

“Instead of having a go from a difficult angle, we need to lend the ball to someone better placed because we were getting into dangerous positions but not making them count.

“But listen, this time six months ago, Wolves were playing two divisions higher than us and we feel disappointed not to have got anything today.

“We will get there, it’s just a case that it has to come together sooner rather than later.”
