A draw was the correct result

23 January 2016

Carlos Carvalhal believes a draw was the fair result after the Owls matched Reading 1-1 at the Madjeski Stadium to gain another point towards their promotion push.

Wednesday took the lead after ten minutes when Gary Hooper scored his first goal as a permanent member of the team, but Reading equalised through a Jake Cooper header in the second half.

Carvalhal said: “A point was a fair result.

“We wanted the win but I will take the draw as we now have more points in the league than before the start of the game.

“I am happy with the way we played. Yes, Reading had more of the ball but I don’t remember Keiren Westwood having to make much a defence in the game.

“We must also remember that we hit the post, we had other chances but overall I thought a draw was absolutely correct.”

The Owls remain in the top six and now turn their attention to the FA Cup fourth round tie at Shrewsbury next Saturday.

And Carvalhal insists Wednesday will be respecting the famous old trophy every step of the way.

He added: “We are wearing the shirt of Sheffield Wednesday and defending the badge.

“We will be taking this game and the cup very seriously, as you saw earlier in the season with the Capital One Cup.

“We want to do well in every competition and right now we will start preparing for the game at Shrewsbury next week.”
