sport news Ipswich 2-2 Sheffield Wednesday


Carlos Carvalhal's Sheffield Wednesday players were booed off at Hillsborough at the weekend when they drew 0-0 against Bristol City, having not recorded a single shot on target.

Carvalhal was rescued on Wednesday night by Atdhe Nuhiu, who scored a last-gasp header to earn Wednesday a share of the points that they probably didn't deserve.

Marytn Waghorn's header and Joe Garner's strike either side of Gary Hooper's penalty looked to be enough to move Mick McCarthy's up to eighth and one point offg the Championship's top six.

Joe Garner took advantage of the space left by full Morgan Fox and sprinted to the byline. His cross into the area was aimed perfectly at Celina, who was advancing at the far post, but his header was saved down to his right by Westwood.

Wednesday's quest for a shot on goal continued as experienced winger Ross Wallace shifted the ball onto his left foot just outside the Ipswich area but his effort was harmless and trickled out for a goal kick.
