Darren Moore reflected on the 1-1 draw at Cambridge and was pleased that the resilience and persistence of the players eventually paid dividends.
The Owls trailed to George William’s first half opener and after ramping up the pressure in the second period were rewarded late on by Fisayo Dele-Bashiru’s maiden professional goal.
Wednesday might have won it at the death but Liam Palmer was denied in spectacular style by Dimitar Mitov between the U’s sticks.
Moore said: “I was pleased with the resilience we showed tonight in difficult conditions. There was a swirling wind and credit to Cambridge because they pinned us back and tried to get the second goal but we stayed resolute.
“We said at half time the longer the ball stays in play the more the pendulum will swing in our favour. That’s the way it went in the second half, Fizz scored a great goal. After that there was only going to be one winner and Liam’s header looked like it was going in at the end but it was a world class save.
“We wanted to win the game but we haven’t lost it – that’s one defeat in six games so we will keep building, keep working.
“We’ve come from behind to get a point, it’s not something we have seen too often in recent times, so psychologically we can take something from that.”
