Sheffield Wednesday boss Darren Moore insisted that Ipswich Town were 'fortunate' to get a point in their 1-1 draw at Portman Road yesterday.

The Owls were denied all three points by late drama, Macauley Bonne sneaking up behind keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell to steal the ball, with Conor Chaplin then scoring the equaliser.

But Moore said: "It is just one of them things. It happens in football.

"We are 100 per cent behind him (Peacock-Farrell). He's a top, top goalkeeper.

"I firmly believe he will play regularly in the Premier League."

Of the game, he added: "There is a real genuine care and honesty about the group and that's what we want there as a football club.

"We stood resolute and we didn't lose the game. Ipswich knew they had been in the game and they will know they were fortunate to get a point today.
