Morecambe v Sheffield Wednesday LIVE: Updates from the Mazuma Stadium

Wednesday’s 9 gets an effort off, but it’s wide... The Owls turning the screw big time now as they start the second half with some real pace. Feels more of a ‘when’ than an ‘if’ as things stand.

But Morecambe hold firm.

Byers clips the post with a delightful effort! He’s tried to place one, but he’s hit the woodwork rather than the back of the net. Very unlucky!

The second half has kicked off... No changes from Wednesday as they look to push for a goal. As things stand, they’re dropping to second - behind Sunderland.

Another chance - but the half ends 0-0

Gregory ghosts in, but his header goes wide. Then the half time whistle blows.

Wednesday dominant, and playing at pace, but they’ve not managed to really test the Morecambe stopper and will be disappointed not to have made their pressure count.

Cooney joins Byers, McLoughlin and Brown in the referee’s book for a foul on Marvin Johnson.
