We deserved to win says Carvalhal

Carlos Carvalhal felt Wednesday deserved all three points after a disappointing 1-1 draw at Burton.

Gary Hooper put us ahead with a clever backheel on 36 minutes and George Boyd thought he’d made it two soon afterwards, only to see his excellent finish ruled out for offside.

Burton, who dominated early on, equalised after 65 minutes, Joe Mason taking advantage of sloppy defendiong to fire home from close range … just 10 seconds after coming on as a sub.

Daniel Pudil then saw an effort cleared off the line and David Jones might have done better with a late header as Wednesday had to settle for just one point, leaving us in 16th place and on six points from our first five games.

Head coach Carvalhal said afterwards: “I don’t know how we didn’t win that game. We were the better team and I feel bad for our players that we haven’t got the win because they deserved all three points.

“We got the goal and then we created more chances to go two in front, but unfortunately the goal didn’t come.

“Their goal is one that we shouldn’t concede, they did not trouble our defence much during the game.”
