Sheff Wed 1-1 Stoke
Sheffield Wednesday are still looking for their first home win of the season after drawing with Stoke.

Stoke went close through Darel Russell, his strike saved by Brad Jones, while Owls defender Madjid Bougherra was denied by Steve Simonsen.

Martin Paterson put Stoke ahead after collecting Dave Brammer's pass before Simonsen saved from Glenn Whelan.

Chris Brunt equalised from the penalty spot after Stoke defender Andy Griffin was deemed to have handled in the area.

  • Sheffield Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock:
    "I'm proud of every player because each one gave everything to the cause.

    "It was a very tight game and I can't fault my players because they worked very hard. If all the injured players come back, I think things will turn.

    "It's vitally important we get our offensive players back."

  • Stoke boss Tony Pulis:
    "We created good opportunities. I was desperately disappointed with the penalty decision, which I thought was very soft.

    "The Wednesday crowd do make some decisions go their way.

    "It was a commendable performance given the problems we have with players out. I thought we played good football."
