Sheffield Wednesday manager, Jos Luhukay, praised his side after their 0-0 draw in the Steel City Derby at Bramall Lane.
Owls’ ‘keeper Cameron Dawson saved a first-half spot-kick from David McGoldrick to help earn Wednesday’s first clean-sheet of the season – and stop a rot of four defeats on the spin.
Luhukay said: “You’re always happy when you’re not losing games but I think today the draw was, for us, very important.
“We have in the beginning of the game the luck that Cammy [Dawson] stopped the penalty at a very important moment.
“Sheffield United were strong, made a lot of pressure and were high focussed in the offensive moments. They rotate a lot.”
Just one month ago Wednesday were in the play-off places, but a recent run of form, which saw Norwich walk away from Hillsborough last weekend with a 4-0 win, put pressure on Luhukay’s future.
It was something that the Dutchman shrugged off, however, as he maintains he always gives 100 per cent.
“You can believe me, I’m very relaxed,” he added.
“I do my everything, the best that I can give, and in football you have good periods and maybe the not so good.
“The last four weeks haven’t made me a bad coach or manager.”
