From the opposition

Sheffield Wednesday manager Tony Pulis said his side were unlucky in their defeat against Barnsley on the weekend but they have to keep going as they head to The City Ground.


He said: “I thought we were deserved a point from the game, particularly the way we played in the second half.

"We dominated the ball and we were really unfortunate when Joey hits the crossbar and the post, but that’s the way things are going for us right now.

“We have to roll up our sleeves, we go to Nottingham Forest on Tuesday and that’s as big a game as it gets right now.”
