Mixed feelings

24 November 2016

Satisfied with the performance if not the result, said Neil Thompson after the Owls’ Under-23s went down 1-0 to Crewe over the Pennines.

A solitary second half goal from Callum Ainley was the difference as in-form Alex posted their fourth win from five games.

A relatively even encounter saw Matt Penney, Jack Lee and Sean Clare stand out for the visitors, with the only real thing lacking a ruthless edge in the final third.

Coach Thompson told “I was pleased with the performance, which was very encouraging as we did the simple things very well and created chances.

“The ball went flashing across the six-yard box more than once and I thought we could have shown a bit more of a cutting edge.

“There wasn’t much between the two sides, it was the kind of game where one goal was always going to win it.

“So overall, I would say I’m disappointed with the result but encouraged by the performance.”
