Report: Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Bolton Wanderers

Aaron Wil rescued a dramatic point for Bolton Wanderers right at the death after a controversial George Boyd goal had threatened to gift Sheffield Wednesday an undeserved victory at Hillsborough.

The assistant referee had initially flagged for offside in the build-up to the Owls' goal, only for him to bring his flag down which prompted the referee Darren Bond to let the goal stand.

And with time running out Wilbraham came off the bench to head his first goal in Wanderers colours to earn a share of the spoils and send the travelling 1800 Wanderers supporters into ecstasy.

Team News

Phil Parkinson made two changes to team which picked up a point against Reading in midweek. Sammy Ameobi and Derki returned to the starting XI at the expense of Josh Vela and Filipe Morais, the latter of whom was named among the subsitutes.

With two victories against Sheffield Wednesday already this season, Wanderers were hoping to make it a hat-trick against the out of form Owls, who made six changes to their team.

First Half

Daniel Pudil had the game’s first effort after five minutes when he flashed a volley well wide when his long range throw into the Wanderers box was cleared to him from a defensive header off Derik.

The match started off at an even tempo with both sides taking their time to settle into a rhythm.

Sammy Ameobi almost carved open Wanderers opening chance when he charged towards the box, looking for a one-two with Adam Le Fondre. The frontman, though, was unable to return the ball to his team-mate who would have been in a fantastic position to score.

The duo combined once again moments later with Ameobi threading through a lovely ball to Le Fondre who was flagged offside as he took a shot, which incidentally went wide.

The hosts should have been in front after 20 minutes when Jack Hunt found himself unmarked at the far post. His shot though skewed wide of Ben Alnwick’s right hand post to give Wanderers a reprieve.

Joe Wildsmith had to have his wits about him after Ameobi’s powerfully-hit free-kick took a deflection off the Wednesday wall on its way towards goal.

Buckley then had a glorious chance to put his side in front when he robbed Hunt of possession and ran towards goal despite taking a kick to the ankles. The midfielder was unable to get a shot on goal though.

Wildsmith was pressed into action as Wanderers upped the ante when he kept out a spectacular acrobatic volley from Le Fondre.

The Wednesday keeper was in inspired form as made a great low save to keep out Buckley’s far post header after he latched onto Ameobi’s superb right footed cross.

Second Half

Ameobi combined well with Buckley deep on the left with the latter putting in a splendid cross into the box. The ball though fell between Le Fondre and Pratley and as eventually cleared.

Buckley was attacking well and might have done better after latching on to Taylor’s cut back. His shot was tame and easily gathered by Wildsmith.

A bright spell from Wanderers ensued and they were firmly on top but couldn’t convert their possession and incisiveness into chances.

Morais was brought on just after the hour mark when he replaced Buckley. The Portuguese immediately took a corner which was cleared for another one.

He was also involved in a build-up which culminated in Ameobi firing on target with a volleyed effort.

Wanderers had their opponents on the ropes once again but weren’t testing Wildsmith.

They did, however, when Ameobi cut in from the right an unleashed a trademark left footed striker which bounced awkwardly in front of the Wednesday keeper who did well to beat the ball away.

The hosts made their first change when Rhodes came on for Nuhiu with fifteen minutes of the game remaining.

Against the run of play, and with a degree of controversy, Wednesday found themselves in front thanks to Boyd angled shot at the far post. However, Wanderers were aggrieved as the linesman’s flag had been up for an offside infringement in the build up to the goal. For some reason, it was withdrawn seconds later much to the frustration of the Wanderers bench.

Burke also grabbed an equaliser when he got a header to Morais’ free-kick but Wildsmith managed to fingertip the ball over his bar for a corner.

Parkinson responded with a double attacking substation when he brought on Clough and Wilbraham for Derik and Flanagan.

And the tall frontman bagged his opening goal deep into injury time to give Wanderers a precious point.

A decent point, great to get the deserved equaliser in injury time.  A great atmosphere too.

Completely agree Wessy.

It would seem better business sense to have a full stadium than have one that is half full.

More fans to spur the team on and lift spirits perhaps.

More pies and beer sold too.

Just sat here waiting for Wilbraham to come home, so I can congratulate him on his goal today.

If we were ever going to get another away win this season, that game was it and despite the good feeling that came with getting the late equaliser I reckon it was 2 points dropped which may be the difference between survival and relegation at last orders. 
Looking at our remaining fixtures Parky may end up regretting not playing a more attacking system and selection today, because he won''t get much opportunity to do that down the line.

He's got Millwall and Brum home, and Barnsley, Burton away that if he sends them out to win we have a chance, we all know he wont though so yes pretty screwed.

How much more attacking could he have gone with that squad? Clough for Pratley? Not a sensible move away from home.

I'm far from being anti Bolton, just anti Parkinson, he's too scared to let them play to their strengths.

He could start bet getting Buckley some better boots. These aren't doing it.

Our strength is being solid at the back, that’s what got us promoted last year. Not sure what you want him to focus on instead.

IMO the defence has been heavily protected by the midfield in a system which pulls attackers back and leaves them with too much to do going forward to provide a consistent goal threat. It's great to minimise goal scoring opportunities for the opposition but when we are playing against teams like Wednesday in a situation where a win would be a massive coup in this relegation fight, I feel we should show a lot more attacking intent, but this system - and especially Parky's positioning of the forwards - doesn't help. Adam Armstrong was a perfect example. For us he played 20 games and scored just 1 goal. Since he's been at Rovers in League 1 he's played 12 and scored 7. Different league, but it does show that with a bit of support he  knows where the goal is.
I'm happy enough playing the Parky way against the top teams, but I can't see us pulling away from the teams around us if we sit back against them. 
Obviously Parky's system would work a lot better if we had more athletic midfielders who can up and down the pitch in numbers, but we can't afford that sort of talent, so in making do with what we've got, Parky should set his stall out differently against teams more susceptible to pressure e.g. Wednesday. IMO.

The question was really, what are our strengths as a team? I think it's quite obviously the defence (and I include the likes of Henry as part of that unit).

Do we have the players at our disposal to play any other way? I would say not. Yes this is a team built in Parky's image, he's created a squad to play his style of football but at this point, it's working. I don't think the Armstrong example proves anything, doing it in a successful league 1 side and a struggling championship side are worlds apart. We need players who can do the latter.

That's almost like suggesting we should play the same way against every team regardless of who are they are and I can't agree with that amigo.
Our strength is defence because we set up defensively at the expense of attack so of course it's our strength. Question is whether or not you believe some teams are more susceptible to attacking pressure than others and personally I do - and therefore think we need a bit more tactical nous than inviting pressure and only coming out of the shell when we're losing.
As regards "playing to our strengths" I don't believe we are playing to our attackers strengths and they are made to look worse than they are because they are isolated so often.
