Stalemate at Hillsborough: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Sheffield Wednesday halted a four-match losing streak as they played out an uninspiring goalless draw with Oldham at Hillsborough.

Owls boss Alan Irvine rang the changes after defeats to Brentford, Carlisle, Plymouth and Southampton but despite an improved showing, his side lacked a cutting edge in front of goal.

Chances were at a premium for both teams throughout, and while Wednesday enjoyed the better of the possession in the first-half, it was the Latics who were the closest to scoring.

First when Dean Furman volleyed just wide of the angle when well-placed and then when Dale Stephens failed to capitalise with a free-kick just outside the area.

Clinton Morrison did have half a shout for a penalty in the first-half but it was not until the second period that Wednesday had any meaningful shot of note.

Giles Coke was just off target with a rare strike on the edge of the box, while Gary Teale fired over with an ambition shot from range.

At the other end of the pitch, Chris Taylor had a late chance to win it for Oldham but shot inches wide of Nicky Weaver's goal.
