On this day: Sheffield Wednesday 0-0 MK Dons

On this day in 2016, Sheffield Wednesday took on MK Dons at Hillsborough, which ended in a 0-0 draw.

Wednesday dominated for most of the game. The Dons’ Samir Carruthers saw his first-half shot blocked before Daniel Pudil struck the post for Wednesday. Owls substitute Atdhe Nuhiu failed to convert numerous headed chances, before Ross Wallace was sent off for violent conduct with 10 minutes remaining. The home side, who remain sixth, poured forward late on but to no avail. Despite Wednesday’s inability to break the deadlock they managed to extend their lead over seventh-placed Cardiff City, who lost 2-1 at Brentford, to six points. MK Dons are now winless in eight matches but were fortunate not to lose after Fernando Forestieri and Nuhiu spurned chances in a hectic second half.
