Wednesday boss Alan Irvine described his players performance as ‘unacceptable’ following their 3-2 loss against ten-man Plymouth Argyle in League One yesterday.

The defeat was the Owls’ third on the spin and sends them down to eleventh in the league table, their lowest position of the season to date.

And Irvine laid into his players in the post-match press conference, saying: ‘Some of the things that happened just should not have happened. They were unacceptable.

‘Conceding goals, poor defending and not having the right mentality. That’s what I’m bitterly disappointed about.

‘You learn lessons all the time and I’m learning lessons about my players that’s why I’m disappointed.’

Irvine now has a full week with his players ahead of the next game, a clash against another struggling pre-season favourite for promotion in Southampton at Hillsborough on Saturday.
