Wednesday stay just one point off the play-off positions after a goalless draw with high-flying Brighton at Hillsborough on Tuesday night.
The point stretches our unbeaten run to 11 games while Brighton lost top spot but retained their record of not having lost a league match this season.
In a game of few clear-cut chances, the sides tended to cancel each other out as neat approach work was invariably snuffed out in the last third at either end.
Jack Hunt saw an angled first-half effort blocked for a corner by David Stockdale and, with Wednesday having the better of the later stages, Daniel Pudil found space on the left-hand side but saw his drive flash past the near post when he might have shot across goal.
As to be expected, Brighton showed plenty of confidence on the ball but their only attempt on target came 17 minutes from time when Sam Baldock’s effort was saved by Keiren Westwood and the follow-up shot from Solly March was blocked.
Head coach, Carlos Carvalhal, said afterwards: “Both teams were very strong and a draw was a fair result. Brighton started better than us, but in the second half I feel we were the better side as we fought right until the end.
“I think it’s important that we keep getting results against the top teams in the division, so even though we played to win, I will take the one point.”
