Wednesday paid for missed first-half chances as we slumped to another home defeat … this time 1-0 against out-of-form Wolves.
Stuart Gray summed up the performance by saying: “We could have been three-up in the first 10 minutes and out of sight by half-time. Football is all about taking your chances and we didn’t do that today.”
And Wednesday were then made to pay for poor defending which allowed ex-Owl Leon Clarke to grab the winner within seconds of coming on as a sub in the 84th minute.
Stevie May was at the centre of the majority of our first-half opportunities but Wednesday failed to punish a Wolves side clearly lacking in confidence.
Chances were few and far between In the second half and the nearest we came to scoring in this period was a curler from Royston Drenthe which was just off target … before Wolves and Clarke grabbed the winner shortly afterwards.
It was yet another disappointing home display from the Owls, missing those chances and lacking the aggression and teamwork after the break to defeat a far from convincing Wolves outfit, and also meaning we still haven’t beaten the West Midlanders at Hillsborough since 1964.
