Bolton Wanderers and Sheffield Wednesday eked out a game of two halves at the Reebok tonight - a draw was probably a fair result, with both teams enjoying lots of the ball in midfield, but both unable to make anything of it.

Ben Amos was solid in goal, Dean Moxey, Prince-Désir Gouano, Lawrie Wilson and Derik Osede again showed what a competent backline they were.
Mark Davies failed to hit the heights of the weekend's Wolverhampton Wanderers game, whilst the less said about Liam Feeney the better.
