- Glenn Loovens disappointed with Cardiff reverse
- Ex-Cardiff man feels Owls deserved a share of the spoils
- Defender looks ahead to home clash with Ipswich
Owls skipper Glenn Loovens was left disappointed following the 2-1 reverse against his former club Cardiff on Saturday.
The Owls began the second half on the front foot when Sean Morrison deflected into his own net and in the process, cancelled out his first half header.
But despite threatening, Wednesday couldn’t go on to find a second goal and the hosts went on to claim the points, with Anthony Pilkington also on target.
Loovens said: “We started ever so well and had a great opportunity early in the game and if that goes in, it’s a different game.
“We were disappointed to concede from a free kick because that isn’t like us but I thought we started the second half much better.
“We scored the equaliser quickly and I thought we would go on to win the game. We were crossing dangerous balls into the box but we couldn’t get that second goal.”
Loovens spent three years at Cardiff (2005-2008) and said of his former employers:
“This is football and it happens that you face your former teams. I had a great three years at Cardiff and always come back with a smile on my face.
“Every club I have left, I have left on a good note. I gave my best at Cardiff for three years and it was nice to get that reception.
“But Sheffield Wednesday is my focus now and the good thing about this league is that games come around fast and we have a chance to get back to winning ways on Tuesday at home.
“We picked up a good win there last week against Reading and that gave everybody a boost.”
