Speaking to the BBC’s cameras a short time after match day referee Peter Bankes blew the final whistle, Millwall manager Neil Harris explained.
‘There were no teacups getting overturned in our dressing room at half-time. Our shape was excellent but we just missed that end product. I knew we were on the front foot and were the better side. Second half the attitude was outstanding. We were aggressive in what we did and scored two great goals. It is a platform to build on as we are chasing 50 points as quickly as possible.’
Sheffield Wednesday head coach Jos Luhukay in his comparative interview explained.
‘Jordan Thorniley was unconscious after the challenge, he has gone to the hospital so our thoughts are with him. We will have to wait for the next hour or so to find out the extent of the injury. But we are very disappointed, we lost the game in just a couple of minutes in the second half and we must look at ourselves. It was a very disappointing game, we took the goal, got in front at half time and lost focus after the first goal.’
