Emyr Huws was delighted to end his injury nightmare after returning to the Ipswich Town first team, but was left ‘gutted’ after Sheffield Wednesday escaped Portman Road with a point.
Having not featured for the Blues since making his move to the club permanent in the summer due to an Achilles injury, Huws was introduced as a 67th-minutes substitute and had an instant impact as he supplied the cross for Martyn Waghorn’s expert header.
But, with the Blues looking to see out a 2-1 win, there was a late sting in the tail as Atdhe Nuhiu headed home a late leveller in the 2-2 draw.
For Huws, the game reprented the end of a tough few months, but the Welshman still left Portman Road frustrated.
“I think that’s how football is sometimes, and we’re gutted, obviously,” he said.

“The performance was good and we deserved three points but we’ve got to see the game out better and I’m just gutted, to be honest.
“It’s been a long, long time coming so I’m chuffed to be back. I’m feeling good so hopefully I can kick-on.

As well as his instant impact, Huws gave the Blues midfield a boost as he moved the ball well, drove forward at times and looked to bring the Ipswich forwards into the game despite clearly being a way short of full match fitness.
He is likely to be involved again at Aston Villa on Saturday, where he scored the winner for Mick McCarthy’s men last season.
