The Blues boss was delighted with his side after keeping a clean sheet against Sheffield Wednesday and praised the Owls keeper Lee Grant for denying them after he let six in against Reading on Tuesday.

“Without a shadow of a doubt we should have had three points. There keeper has made three outstanding saves and we dominated particularly second half.
