Sheffield United manager Kevin Blackwell felt his side did not have any luck in their 2-1 defeat by derby rivals Wednesday.

The Blades dominated in terms of possession but Arturo Lupoli's strike was all they had to show for it, while Tommy Spurr and Marcus Tudgay netted for the Owls.

Blackwell said: "You need things to break for you in a derby game that's for sure, and those were two great strikes for them."

He added: "If you're going to lose a game, I have to say Tudgay's goal was world class, but it meant that they could shut up shop to a degree and frustrate us.

"But we had enough of the ball and we had enough chances as well to have got something out of the game, but sadly we didn't do it.

"But I'm not going to criticise these players. They have been fantastic since I've been here and I cannot complain."
