Wednesday's win meant they closed the gap on city rivals United to one point after they
lost at MK Dons.
VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"I think it would have been a travesty if we have come away with just a point, because of the amount of chances.
"Their keeper has had a really good day today, we just didn't think it was going to go in.
"You were just thinking is it going to be their day.
"But our response was superb after that."
Carlisle United manager Greg Abbott told BBC Radio Cumbria:
"Someone said you don't get anything out of that game, well you do. You get a lot of optimism going forward.
"There's a big difference, there's a big gulf in resources and we're not going to go down that road of harping on about it too much. They're a powerful club and they've got a very powerful team and everything we knew, every nous we had of knowledge we used today to make sure we were always in the game.
"I think Sheffield Wednesday were the better side, but in terms of who had unbelievably big hearts and deserved something out of the game, because of that - it was Carlisle United."
