Owls boss Dave Jones was pleased with his side’s overall performance in the 0-0 draw against Wolves on Saturday.

Jones, a former manager of Wolves, was left to rue some missed chances that could have handed the Owls three points instead of one, but praised his team’s showing on the whole against Dean Saunders’s men.

“I thought we were the better side today, we got the ball down, we wanted to play and we’ve created 17 chances but not scored,’ he told the official SWFC website.

“Chris Kirkland has had nothing to do all afternoon, we defended magnificently against a big, strong side that was in the Premiership last season.

“That’s four points from two difficult games and we would have taken that.”

He continued: “It’s just that final ball, that little bit of a caress in front of goal. But last week we scored three goals and might have had five or more so it’s just the way it goes sometimes.

“But listen, we’re getting there, the players are getting there. They do seem to have adapted, they are a great bunch of players to work with and there’s a great atmosphere around the place.”

It was a second point from as many league matches for new Wolves boss Saunders, who was happy to leave S6 with something to show for his side’s efforts.

“I think that’s a good point away from home,” he said.

“Any game you go away from home and keep a clean sheet is a good return especially in this division. And it’s a marked improvement from the last away game which was a defeat at Luton.

“Sheffield Wednesday have been on good form winning a few games recently including at Hull City last weekend scoring three past them.’
