BBCi, Sean O'Driscoll described the game as "always going to be a difficult game for us - on another day we could have been beaten two or three-nil", going on to say that "Wednesday were strong - in the first 20 minutes, the crowd were behind them and if we had gone a goal down then, it would have been very difficult for us. We knew we had to defend and try to win the second ball".
He went Radio Solent to say that he was relieved at how John Spicer celebrated his first goal for the Club "was just dreading that he was going to take his shirt off. It was his second league game and first league goal and I was dreading that his celebrations involved taking his shirt off and he would have got sent-off! He is a young man from Arsenal. He has come here to learn what football is all about. He plays in a side that is probably the best in the league and they probably don't have to be bothered about a lot of things. The cut and thrust of league football is another side to it and to be fair to him, he has got better since he has been here".
