Friday night round-up: Points shared in Steel City derby

12 January 2018

Nothing could separate Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday in their Sky Bet Championship clash at Bramall Lane, as the two sides played out a 0-0 draw.

Proceedings were tight in the first-half, with the Blades creating the game’s first opening, as John Lundstram lifted the ball onto the roof of the net after four minutes.

Jordan Rhodes went close for the visitors when he placed a header wide of the goal, following Liam Palmer’s cross from the right flank.

Goalless is how it would stand at half-time though, with neither side being able to find that breakthrough.

Respective opportunities came for both United and Wednesday at the start of the second-half, with Clayton Donaldson drawing a fine save out of Joe Wildsmith, before the Owls’ Daniel Pudil fired just wide.

The visitors were then reduced to 10 men with just under 30 minutes left on the clock, as Glenn Loovens was dismissed for picking up a second yellow card.

As the game edged towards its conclusion, Leon Clarke and Adam Reach had chances to win it, but a point each is what both teams would have to settle for.
