Pleased to be in the hat

26 January 2018

Jos Luhukay conceded that the Owls rode their luck at times but was pleased with his side’s progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Wednesday ultimately eased past Reading 3-1 but only after the visitors missed chances to take the lead.

But two goals from Atdhe Nuhiu and a maiden George Boyd strike sealed victory before a late Cameron Dawson own goal gave the Royals a consolation.

Luhukay said: “I think we had Cammy to thank for some fantastic saves. He showed great agility and reflexes.

“We are very fortunate to have two very good young goalkeepers. Joe Wildsmith has done well in the Championship and Cammy has done well in the FA Cup.

“Tonight, Reading had chances but did not take them but we took ours. Against Cardiff last week I think we had better chances but could not score…this is football.”

Looking forward, Luhukay is pleased to get to the next round of the famous old competition and is keeping his fingers crossed for another home tie.

The draw takes place on Monday evening, with Wednesday ball number six.

He said: “I would like anyone at home. The atmosphere of our fans gives us a big advantage. They were very loud tonight.

“I do not mind if we play a big team or a team lower down the divisions so long as we play at home!

“This will be very positive for our fans but, of course, I am sure everyone who is in the next round will want to play at home.”
