Full Time: Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday
Wolves failed in their attempt to reach 100 points at the top of the Championship with a draw in the game at home to Sheffield Wednesday. In the first-half, Sheffield Wednesday had most of the ball and kept the Champions at bay although Afobe and Saiss went close for the home side.
Wolves continued to press in the second half but Sheffield Wednesday came away with an impressive point. Perhaps the Wolves players were distracted by the thought of the Championship trophy being presented at the end of the game.
