Irvine hails flying Owls
Sheffield Wednesday manager Alan Irvine could not hide his delight at the football played by his side in parts of the 2-1 Johnstone's Paint Trophy success against Notts County.An early brace from James O'Connor was enough to send the Owls through, but they created a host of chances in a convincing display.Irvine said: "We started the game absolutely brilliantly. At times the football we played was fantastic and the game was played at a very good tempo."It should have been more comfortable, but we gave away a free-kick and didn't defend it well. There were two good goals from James and he nearly got a hat-trick. You can't blame him for trying to score late on. It was a good all-round performance from him."Everybody played well so I'm absolutely delighted. I want everybody playing well because they're all going to be needed."Irvine revealed Chris Sedgwick limped out of the action with a groin injury. He added: "Right from early on, Chris was feeling his groin. He's the type of player who wants to play all the time, so you've got to really drag him off."
