The Owls had the better of the possession, but were unable to find goalscoring opportunities, and registered just one shot on target across the duration of the game.

Speaking after the loss, caretaker manager Neil Thompson claimed his side are determined to bounce back this weekend, and said: "We’ve all got to be strong, everybody at the club, to get us back on the right track.
