Millwall frustrate Wednesday at Hillsborough

Sheffield Wednesday go into the November international break off the foot of the Championship table but they will be disappointed not to be out of the relegation zone after labouring to a 0-0 draw at home to Millwall.

The Owls dominated large spells of the game and should have taken the lead early on when Kachunga was afforded time and space on the edge of the penalty area but was wasteful with his finish, firing well wide.

The home side were the better side in the first half but struggled to create many more clear cut chances, Windass saw a shot saved at his near post by Bialkowski but there was little to warm the hands of either keeper in the first 45 minutes.

Wallace struck a free-kick wide for the visitors in the early stages of the second half but it wasn’t long before the Owls were back on top and Bialkowski was called into action more. The keeper made a fine save to stop a low drive from Reach and moments later turned another shot from the same player around the post.

Although they were on the back foot Millwall did manage to create a great change midway through the half, but Matt Smith headed way off target when well placed.

Chances in the final stages were at a premium with Bialkowski getting down low to save a Borner header deep into injury time.

Garry Monks side have managed only 6 goals from their opening 11 league games and have only found the net 3 times in 6 games at Hillsborough.

The point takes Wednesday above Derby County on goal difference at the bottom of the table, a point behind Wycombe and two back from Coventry City.
