Millwall and Sheffield Wednesday have slipped further away from the top six.

Sheffield Wednesday and Millwall cancelled each other out in a result that left both sides further from the play-off places.

Wednesday's Adam Reach had the best chance of a tepid first half, glancing a header just wide of the post.

Neither goalkeeper was overly stretched, with Millwall keeper Bartosz Bialkowski gathering Fernando Forestieri's effort.

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson squandered a late chance for the Lions when he lobbed over the bar.

Of the 22 efforts on goal, only four were on target and they were all comfortable for Bialkowski and opposite number Cameron Dawson.

The draw does neither side any favours. Millwall began the day three points off the play-offs, but are now five adrift, while the gap for Sheffield Wednesday opens up to seven from five.

Sheffield Wednesday manager Garry Monk told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"I was pleased overall. Obviously we wanted to win in front of our fans at home, but we ended up with a point.

"I was pleased to see the team with the right attitude. A team which wasn't willing to give up.

"It's a platform to build from, it was a clean sheet, it was a point. Considering the month that we have had I didn't expect the team to be at its most confident.

"I think they will take confidence from that type of performance. I thought it was a very even game."

Millwall manager Gary Rowett told BBC Radio London:

"If I look at the overall performance, it is a point we are happy with.

"I am not overly happy with some parts of the game, but we always have to look at context.

"We've played a Premier League team in Sheffield United [in the FA Cup] and Leeds, which was physically demanding, and we looked a bit leggy and didn't have that zip about us.

"We were a bit slow playing through the lines and their two centre-halves dealt well with Matt Smith. A lack of quality and composure in the key area was symptomatic all game."
