Same old story as Owls let lead slip

Wednesday were pegged back once again in yet another disappointing home display and had to settle for a point in a 1-1 draw with Charlton.

Man-of-the-match Caolan Lavery put us in front on 40 minutes, finishing off a good move by turning in Lewis Buxton’s cross from close range.

Lewis McGugan had missed an earlier chance in a one-on-one while Keiren Westwood pulled off an excellent stop from Morgan Fox at the other end, with the scoreline goalless.

Wednesday continued to have the better of the game after the break but couldn’t find that finishing touch and the visitors grabbed an equaliser when Johann Berg Gudmundsson fired home 15 minutes from time after Westwood had pushed away a shot from ex-Owl loanee Chris Eagles.

Wednesday then responded with our best spell of attacking play, a cracking 20-yarder from Lavery crashed against an upright and within a minute Lloyd Isgrove hooked the ball against the woodwork.

Then, with the clock ticking down, Atdhe Nuhiu somehow managed to miss with a free header from six yards and the Owls had to settle for another home draw against very average opposition.

It leaves our league record at Hillsborough showing just four wins and 14 goals from 21 games but, while we slip one place to 13th, the point mathematically ensures our safety in the Championship.
