Speaking to Sky Sports’ cameras a short time after match day referee Lee Probert blew the final whistle, Barnsley caretaker head coach Paul Harsley explained.

‘You never know what’s going to happen but the second I walked into the changing room on Tuesday morning I knew everyone was on side. We knew clearly what we wanted. After the game I told the lads I couldn’t thank them enough. They could have had their heads turned. The lads responded brilliant. We all came together. I was asked to do this game and I’ve done it to the best I could in the short space of time. I’m just gutted we didn’t get the three points. In the first half I thought we were the more dominant team. The last 30 minutes fizzled out a bit – both teams were maybe worried about conceding.’

Sheffield Wednesday head coach Jos Luhukay in his comparative interview explained.

‘I think after 90 minutes we must live with this draw. Both teams had chances. We scored the first goal but we couldn’t stay in front. Barnsley had also two or three good chances but we had a very good goalkeeper in Joe Wildsmith. He made some fantastic saves. We had four or five situations but we only scored from the penalty spot. Today who scores the second goal would have left as the winner.’
