Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday
Huddersfield were left to rue missed opportunities after they drew the first leg of their Championship play-off semi-final with Sheffield Wednesday.
Town controlled the first half and nearly took the lead when Izzy Brown’s miscued effort grazed the crossbar.
Owls keeper Keiren Westwood saved well from Nahki Wells’ chip before Adam Reach shot wide for the visitors.
Westwood then saved brilliantly from Wells to leave the tie perfectly poised going into Wednesday’s second leg.
The Terriers went into the game looking to end a seven-match winless streak against the Owls and the visitors struggled to cope with their intensity in the opening exchanges.
Relive Huddersfield’s draw with Sheffield Wednesday
For all Town’s dominance, Wednesday, who conceded just 45 league goals in 46 games, managed to limit their meaningful first half chances to Brown’s effort.
The Chelsea loanee could not quite sort his feet after Wednesday failed to clear Chris Lowe’s deflected cross and his shot flicked the top of the bar on its way over.
The second half followed the pattern of the first with David Wagner’s side enjoying the lion’s share of possession but, thanks in no small part to smart work from Westwood, they could not find a breakthrough.
