A hard-fought point

31 August 2013


Dave Jones hailed “a hard-fought point” as the Owls emerged with a 1-1 draw from Middlesbrough on Saturday.


Michail Antonio was on target for Wednesday before Mustapha Carayol levelled matters at The Riverside Stadium.


And Jones said his side fully deserved a share of the spoils from an entertaining clash on Teesside:


“It was a hard-fought point and one that we were really good value for. To have come away with nothing from a game like that would have been harsh.


“You could say it was a game of two halves. I thought we were absolutely magnificent in the first half and after the break the onus was on the home side to attack and they did that.


“But we defended really well, we were solid and dogged. We had our chances too and might have won it at the end.


“But a point was a fair result and that’s three games unbeaten and something we need to build on.”


Jones issued an update on the injury sustained by Anthony Gardner moments after the Owls took the lead.


He revealed: “It looks like he has torn his Achilles but we won’t know for sure until he has had a scan.


“He says he felt something kick and that is a similar sensation to a tear.


“But we will hope for the best and assess things properly when he has the scan.”
