Steve Bruce was left to rue his side’s missed chances against lowly Reading at Hillsborough yesterday.

Sheffield Wednesday were held to a 0-0 draw by Jose Gomes’ side relegation threatened side.

Bruce, who took charge at Hillsborough for the first time yesterday, was unable to make it back-to-back wins for himself.

Here is what the former Hull City and Aston Villa boss had to say on the game yesterday, as per the Owls’ official club website: “We had some really good chances today and it was disappointing we couldn’t take them. Football is a wonderful game, we all know that, and we all know the strikers tend to get more than anyone else because putting the ball in the net can be the hardest thing to do.”

Bruce believed Wednesday were the better side yesterday: “We dominated the game as we did at Ipswich last week and we’ve created enough chances in both to win comfortably”

He also added: “But that will come, we’re building a platform here, and not everything will click overnight. The players have responded really well to what we’re trying to do but sometimes you get those days and today was one.”

Next up for Sheffield Wednesday is a trip to Millwall in midweek before a short trip to Rotherham United next Saturday. Bruce’s side are currently 16th in the Championship having won 10 games out of their 30 so far this season.
