Sheffield Wednesday boss Tony Pulis was furious with the way his side conceded the equaliser in the 1-1 draw at Blackburn today.
The Owls are fighting for their lives at the bottom of the Championship, and they are currently three points from safety.
So, a win at Ewood Park would’ve been huge, with Pulis’ men on course for a rare win after Adam Reach had put them in front superbly.
However, Joe Rothwell would get an equaliser for Rovers after dancing his way through the Wednesday defence. Whilst it was a good goal from his perspective, several Owls players will feel they should have done more in stopping him getting through.
And, speaking to Yorkshire Live, Pulis explained that he was livid with how the winning position was surrendered.
“They worked really hard against a good Blackburn team. I would have taken a point. That’s the fifth time we have been winning but not held out.
“I was really disappointed with the equaliser. We will analyse it. Norwich did similar to us. They have got to be really, really brave with their decision-making. It was completely utterly ridiculous in many ways.”
Quiz: Did these 25 players make more or less than 100 Sheffield Wednesday appearances?
This is a fair assessment from Pulis. Firstly, he’s right to say it’s a decent point for the team, but he is right to be critical about the equaliser.
Wednesday had soaked up a lot of pressure in the game, and generally they did well, however there always seems to be a moment when they lose concentration or make mistakes.
That came with Rothwell’s goal and it has cost them two valuable points.
