Our first point of the season and a clean sheet to boot on a productive afternoon at Yorkshire rivals Leeds.
The home side looked the more likely throughout an entertaining derby at Elland Road but were kept at bay by a resolute Wednesday.
For all their probing and movement, the Whites couldn’t carve a way through and when they did, goalkeeper Devis Vasquez was in inspired form.
Crysencio Summerville was the Owls’ tormentor in chief and if something was to give, the attacking wideman seemed the likeliest source.
It was Summerville inevitably who fashioned the one clear chance of an opening period Leeds dominated, delightfully picking out Georginio Rutter on the charge but Vasquez got a strong hand to divert the Frenchman’s fierce angled shot.
The hosts showed the same intent after the break and Jamie Shackleton went close with a long-range curler just too high.
Wednesday relied on the counter – Michael Smith turned and saw his low hit saved by Illan Meslier – and were by and large on the back foot.
Vasquez came to the rescue with his legs to deny the advancing Summerville and Luke Ayling spawned a decent headed opportunity from 10 yards.
At the other end, Meslier was off his line sharply to close down Josh Windass and there was certainly more of a spark in the second 45.
Wilfried Gnonto flashed wide from the edge of the box as Leeds continued to press.
The Owls pushed higher up the pitch in the closing stages - Callum Paterson had a sight of goal after good work from Windass but fired over the top.
Back came Leeds and Gnonto had a penalty appeal waved away after tangling with Dominic Iorfa.
Rutter saw another chance go begging as the striker under hit a chipped effort into the grateful arms of Vasquez and Ethan Ampadu was off target having found space in the area.
The home side pushed for a later winner but Wednesday kept their shape, held firm, and can enter the international break with that maiden point and significant jolt of confidence.
Wednesday: Vasquez, Paterson (Valentin 90), Bernard, B Diaby, Famewo, Byers, Bannan, Delgado, Windass, Gregory (Iorfa 67), Smith (Fletcher 70)
