Stuart Gray lamented the point posted at Charlton, insisting it should have been all three.
Wednesday put in a determined, dogged display at The Valley on an extremely heavy pitch and dominated the lion’s share of the contest.
But the visitors had to settle for a point, which left Gray thinking what might have been.
He said: “I’m sat here talking to the press about one point when it should have been three. We’ve seen more of the ball, had more of the game but we conceded a poor goal from our point of view.
“It was a throw-in that shouldn’t have caused us any problems but we should be fully concentrated and we weren’t.
“That’s allowed the lad Stephens to go through and put the ball past Chris Kirkland and we made it far too easy for him.
“But credit to the players, they hit back straight away and we got the goal we deserved on a pitch that was not conducive to passing football.
“They have absolutely worked their socks off and I feel for them not getting the win.
“I look at this game and I look at the Blackburn game and see two points when I could quite easily be looking at six.”
The talking point from Wednesdayites now focuses on goalscorer Wickham, who took his tally to six goals from eight games since signing for the Owls on loan from Sunderland.
And Gray confirmed that fresh dialogue has been opened with the Premiership side.
He said: “We are talking to Sunderland because we want to keep Connor and he wants to stay here and play games rather than sit on the substitutes’ bench.
“Obviously, he is their player so we will see how talks progress.
“He has done ever so well here, he is buzzing with confidence at the moment, and credit to him because he has made the most of his spell with us.”
