Bittersweet day at Derby

9 March 2019

Whilst happy to see his side come back from an early goal to earn a point at promotion-chasing Derby, Steve Bruce also felt frustration at Pride Park.

Dominic Iorfa cancelled out Bradley Johnson’s opener and the Owls might have snatched victory when a late Sam Winnall effort was disallowed.

Bruce told “I thought the referee had given it but he must have seen something and it’s ruled out.

“Whether the ball was in the keeper’s hand, it looks that way, I will have to take a look at it on the video. I hope it’s the right decision.”

The Owls boss continued: “We’ve played really well in the second half and I’m disappointed with the draw really, this is a tough place to come to against a team that’s been in and around the play-offs for a good few years.

“We’ve kept them out for most of the game after the one-goal lead early on – Keiren has made two or three saves near the end but we defended well overall.

“The frustrating thing is turning these draws into wins – draws don’t really count for much at this stage of the season.

“It’s nice to keep the unbeaten run going, we’ve won four and drawn four, but with a couple of those draws being wins, the picture is different.”
