JIM Magilton blamed a poor start to the second half for two points dropped as Ipswich's failure to win at home in the league for the third game in a row saw them slip even further behind the play-off pack.

Steve Watson headed in a Jermaine Johnson cross to give the Owls the lead six minutes after the break before Pablo Counago equalised from a Tommy Miller corner on 66 minutes after Lee Grant had saved Gareth McAuley's initial header.

Magilton said: “I was disappointed in the manner that Wednesday scored a goal but pleased that we got back in the game.
