Wednesday left-back Tommy Spurr bagged his second ever goal in the famous blue and white stripes last night, and what a way to grab the Owls a vital point!

Tommy’s 81st minute leveller against Paul Sturrock’s men could well prove to be the best goal at Hillsborough this season, both from a ‘goal of the season’ point of view, and in terms of helping the Owls to survival in the Championship this season.

And Owls boss Brian Laws revealed to SWFC.co.uk that the Wednesday youngster was left ‘beaming’ in the dressing room following the clash with the Pilgrims.

‘If there was one player who was going to put the ball into the back of the net I would pick Tommy Spurr because he is absolutely Sheffield Wednesday through and through. It could not have happened to a nicer guy,’ he said.

‘He is beaming in the dressing room because it was a quality strike but I think if I asked him to do that a hundred times 99 of them would probably hit me in the dugout.

‘Moments like that in games can change a season and I hope that’s one of those that will kick us on because every one of those players out there tonight has given everything.’

We put it all down to the Vital Sheffield Wednesday sponsorship of his home shirt – nice one, Tommy!
