Dougie Freedman's Sheffield Wednesday reaction

13 September 2014

Manager offers his thoughts following Wanderers' draw with the Owls

Dougie Freedman says it is a matter of time before his Bolton Wanderers side register their maiden win of the Sky Bet Championship season.

Wanderers were held to a goalless draw against Sheffield Wednesday at Macron Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Lee Chung-Yong and the returning Mark Davies came closest to scoring for Bolton, with Andrew Lonergan also pulling off a string of fine saves at the other end.

“Sheffield Wednesday made it tough for us – they’re a very good side who are full of confidence, especially away from home,” said the manager following the final whistle.

“I felt we defended very well today – we probably didn’t do enough going forward to win the game, but we certainly had our fair share of possession and passed it very well today.

“We showed great spirit – we didn’t lie down against a team who are riding high at the moment, and on another day, we’ll get that win. 

He continued: “We had enough of the ball, but we need to create more opportunities – we were very brave in our play and I am very happy with how the players dug in.

“We probably didn’t ask enough questions of Sheffield Wednesday in the last 15 minutes of the game, but all in all, we got a point which was probably what we deserved.

“I believe we are playing in the right way and we’ve been creating chances, so that win will come – it’s just a matter of time.”
