Megson: Happy after late equaliser
Sheffield Wednesday boss Gary Megson felt his side deserved a draw after they hit back to draw a thrilling Steel City derby 2-2 on Sunday.
Sheffield United were 2-0 up at half-time following goals from Stephen Quinn and Ched Evans. But Wednesday hit back at Bramall Lane to level the League One contest following late goals from Chris O'Grady and Gary Madine.
Megson said: "I thought we passed the ball better and I just felt we were on top for most of the game. I thought we were fine right the way through. They had two shots on goal, which both went in and we created 10 opportunities.
"I thought we had some good chances. There were a lot of balls bouncing around in their box that we didn't get on the end of. Chris O'Grady should have scored in the first-half and Gary Madine should have scored just after half-time.
"I said at half-time that I felt if we got the next goal, we'd not get beaten. Coming to Bramall Lane is a hard game for everybody and we knew this would be our hardest game of the season.
"Everybody did really well for us. We've got a lot going for us. We worked hard and looked organised."
