A fair result

26 October 2013


An all-square affair was a fair reflection of Saturday’s derby game with Barnsley, said Dave Jones post-match at Oakwell.


The home side bossed the first half in the early kick-off clash but Wednesday did likewise after the break to ensure the Owls’ eighth draw of the season.


And Jones said: “I think it was fair. They were better than us in the first half but we looked better in the second.


“We’ve taken the game to them, created chances and if anyone looked like they were going to get a winner, it was us.


“Their keeper has made a couple of great saves and we should have had a penalty because their lad has clearly handled.


“I know I’ve said it before and I don’t want to be saying it again but I don’t understand how that is not a penalty.


“I can’t blow the whistle and of course it’s frustrating. You can normally tell with the reaction of the players and I think that reaction today said everything.


“But all you can do is move on because there is nothing you can do about it.


“We look at the positives and in isolation it’s a good point. We’ve come from behind to get it, we have shown the character and we move on to the next game, which is at home and that’s where we need to improve.”


Jones issued an update on goalscorer Matty Fryatt, whose month-long loan from Hull reached an end following the Tykes clash.


He revealed: “We will have a conversation with Hull and we would like to keep Matty here.


“I think everyone can see the improvement in his match fitness because that has triggered an improvement in his game.


“He took his goal ever so well today and we could have gone on to win it from there.


“He had a very similar chance against Ipswich and didn’t score and that can be the difference, just that extra bit of sharpness that comes with playing games.”
