Crystal Palace   0 - 0   Sheff Wed

Crystal Palace 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Crystal Palace 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Crystal Palace and Sheffield Wednesday shared the points after wasting a series of chances in an open game.

Palace had the best openings before the break with Paddy McCarthy and Darren Ambrose blasting over when well placed and Alan Lee missing from close range.

Leon Clarke skewed his shot wide as the Owls responded, then ballooned over when Julian Speroni dropped a cross.

Marcus Tudgay came close to winning it for Wednesday but Danny Butterfield bravely cleared his shot off the line.


Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock:
"We had some good chances but we snatched at everything, we just don't like scoring in the first half.

"We are lacking in quality but I don't think they were any better. I can't fault the lads, they are giving me everything.

"We could not put our chances away, it's as simple as that. But we've got seven points from three games and all credit to the lads for that."

Sheffield Wednesday manager Brian Laws:
"Sometimes you are not going to get a free-flowing game and you have to grind out a result, and we ground out a result.

"I don't think Neil will take it the wrong way but it reminded me of playing Sheffield United.

"They get the ball forward quickly and make things happen, and we have shown that we can deal with that."
