Reactions - Sheff Wednesday v Bristol City (18/11/17)

Following yesterday's clash between Sheffield Wednesday and Bristol City, here are the instant reactions from both managers.

Sheffield Wednesday hosted Bristol City at Hillsborough for a 3pm kick off on Saturday November 18 and both sides played out a scoreless draw on the day.

Both sides played out a stalemate and in cancelling each other out they both lost their winning runs


Sheff Wed:

Westwood, Hunt, Lees, Loovens, Fox, Wallace (Lucas Joao 61), Butterfield (Lee 69), Bannan, Reach, Rhodes, Hooper (Fletcher 83).


Jones, van Aken, Palmer, Wildsmith.

Bristol City:

Fielding, Smith, Flint, Baker, Magnusson, Brownhill, Pack, O'Dowda, Reid, Bryan (Paterson 73), Taylor (Djuric 67).


Steele, Woodrow, Eliasson, Vyner, Leko.

Speaking to the BBC's cameras a short time after match day referee Tony Harrington blew the final whistle, Sheffield Wednesday gaffer Carlos Carvalahl explained.

'The game was very balanced - we played against a team doing really well in away games. They've just lost one game so far. We had chances and they also had chances. These types of games, if you score, it's a massive advantage. I think the score is correct. There are three or four games in the competition like this. Let's see if this point will be important at the end of the season. I think our team misunderstood what they had to do. We missed a lot of passes, which usually we don't do.'

Bristol City head coach Lee Johnson in his comparitive interview explained.

'I'm pleased with a point at a tough place to come. We had the better chances. If we'd come away as 1-0 winners, I don't think it would have been a smash-and-grab job. The Wednesday fans got frustrated - and to be honest, that was because my boys shut the passing lines off. The game plan was to come here and win. We came with a 'plan B'. We just need to be a bit more solid in midfield. The plan was to play our game - the high press.'
