Reaction: Duff on Sheffield Wednesday

30 October 2021

After seeing his side earn a late point in front of the biggest crowd of the season at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium, Michael Duff was pleased they were able to claim something against one of the biggest teams in the division.

Leading Sheffield Wednesday for much of the afternoon, the Owls hit back and scored twice in the second half as they looked set to return to South Yorkshire with all three points.

But Matty Blair popped up at the death to score an equaliser which meant the points were shared, in what Duff described as a "flip of a coin type of game".

"I'm not sure how many chances Scott's (Flinders) had to save," he said.

"It's two set plays again. To win a game of football sometimes I think you need a little bit of luck and quite a few things to go with you. I don't think the referee helped us today.

"We haven't had a bit of luck with the own goal and the one-on-one proved to be a big chance at 1-0. At 2-0 I don't think they come back.

"The positive is that we took a point against a big team in the league.

"We actually dealt with the set plays well. To concede the two goals we did is disappointing. We need to be a bit braver with the ball - we didn't really play at all today - it was a flip of a coin type of game."
