The Owls were playing with a man less for the final 20 minutes, but hung on for a well-earned point.

For the hosts, they may feel it was two points dropped with the man advantage coinciding with a number of missed chances.

As a result, the Blues are three points off the top six as they missed the chance to leapfrog MK Dons who play tomorrow.
