Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

That's your lot from me.

A decent encounter between two teams who you'd expect to see in the promotion shake-up at the end of the season ends in a draw. You can read the report here.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Coming up tomorrow

If you love your Championship football then I have good news for you. 

We'll be back tomorrow bringing you live coverage of Wolves' trip to Derby County. Join us from 13:00 BST.

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Hull City captain Michael Dawson told Sky Sports: "I thought we started well and dominated until they scored. The goal knocked the stuffing out of us but we regrouped at the break.

(On Abel Hernandez) "He's had a long trip but he has scored important goals for us and he has got another today.

"We wanted to come here and win but it's a tough place to come."

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Kieran Lee told Sky Sports: "I think we could have been two up before half-time but they put us under pressure in the second half and a draw was probably fair."

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Both teams gave it a good go. Hull probably controlled 70% of the game but probably didn't create enough chances to win it.

FULL-TIME

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

And that is your lot.

Sheffield Wednesday took the lead through for Fernando Forestieri before Hull levelled after the break through Abel Hernandez.

A draw probably the fair result overall.

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Probably just two minutes of injury time left now.

There's been no small amount of effort and endeavour from both sets of players but it looks like neither side is going to be taking the full three points.

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

The fourth official, now the referee, had indicated four minutes of injury time just before Stroud's match-ending injury.

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Niche football moment alert.

The referee is down and in need of some treatment.

Hull striker Chuba Akpom ran straight into the back of poor, unsuspecting Keith Stroud.

He's been helped to his feet and getting a lot of... support from the fans, but he's not going to be able to continue.

SUBSTITUTION

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Second change of the day for Sheffield Wednesday.

Ross Wallace is subbed off for Jeremy Helan.

Two minutes for either side to find a winner.

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Abel Hernandez
Empics

A quick word for Hull goalscorer Abel Hernandez.

The Uruguayan scored as his country beat Colombia 3-0 on Wednesday and he's traveled 16,000 miles over the course of the international break.

Hope the planes had some good films to watch.

SUBSTITUTION

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Steve Bruce makes his final change.

Forward Sone Aluko is brought on for midfielder Jake Livermore. 

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

No sense that either of these sides are going to settle for a point.

The Owls have had a bit more of the ball since making the substitution and with 10 minutes to go this could definitely go either way.

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

What a save by McGregor from Robertson! The ball came through and struck Robertson on the half-volley. It was a fantastic reaction save on the line.

David BurnsBBC Radio Humberside

GREAT SAVE!

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Stunning save from Allan McGregor in the Hull goal.

He's had nothing to do this half but shows brilliant reactions to stop Andrew Robertson diverting Barry Bannan's free-kick into his own net.

That would have been a real sucker punch for Hull. Great keeping.

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Free-kick in a promising position for the visitors after Tom Lees blocks off Abel Hernandez.

The Uruguayan cracks the set piece straight into the wall and Andrew Robertson fires over when the ball breaks out to him.

SUBSTITUTION

A substitution apiece.

The hosts take off Lucas Joao, who couldn't repeat his strong first half showing, and bring on Atdhe Nuhiu in his place.

The Tigers swap one Scot for another with Andrew Robertson coming on for Shaun Maloney.

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Sam Clucas slices just off target after Wednesday half-clear another Hull corner.

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Carlos Carvalhal

Sheffield Wednesday are really having to weather a storm here.

Home skipper Tom Lees comes close to diverting a Shaun Maloney cross into his own net.

Carlos Carvalhal might be looking to make a change soon as the visitors look increasingly likely to find the game's third goal.

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Abel Hernandez so close to his second of the day.

His header is brilliantly tipped away for a corner by Owls keeper Keiren Westwood.

The resultant corner comes to nothing and Tigers midfielder Sam Clucas is booked for a foul as the hosts look to breakaway. 

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Hull have a free-kick in a good area on the right side of the Wednesday area.

Looked a bit soft as Ahmed Elmohamady seemed to take a dive over Barry Bannan's outstretched leg.

Fortunately for the hosts Tom Huddlestone's cross is cleared at the near post.

YELLOW CARD

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull

Sheffield Wednesday right-back Jack Hunt is in the book for a foul on Chuba Akpom.

Tom Huddlestone's free-kick goes through the wall and Owls keeper Keiren Westwood is quickly off his line to stop Abel Hernandez picking up the pieces.

Sheff Wed 1-1 Hull (Hernandez)

Steve Bruce tactical genius?

Seconds after subbing off the booked Mo Diame for loan Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom his side are back in the game.

The Tigers open up the hosts and after Keiren Westwood makes good saves to deny Shaun Maloney and Jake Livermore, the latter keeps his head to tee up Abel Hernandez. The Uruguayan finishes calmly to make it four goals in five games for club and country.

Sheff Wed 1-0 Hull

Good start from the hosts as they look to double their lead.

The Owls have a corner after a concerted spell of pressure but it comes to nothing with a couple of Wednesday players getting one another's way in the area.

KICK-OFF

Sheff Wed 1-0 Hull

Carlos Carvalhal
Empics

We're back under way at Hillsborough.

No changes from either side.

You'd imagine Owls boss Carlos Carvalhal is after more of the same from his charges while Steve Bruce will be hoping for much more of an attacking threat from his currently toothless-looking Tigers.

Still to come in the Championship

Championship league leaders Brighton travel to Leeds while second-placed Middlesbrough host Fulham.

At the bottom of the table new Rotherham boss Neil Redfearn takes his team to Brentford and bottom side Preston go in search of their first home win of the season against Cardiff.

Struggling Bolton visit promotion hopefuls Burnley in a Lancashire derby and third-placed Reading host Charlton.

HALF-TIME

Sheff Wed 1-0 Hull

Sheffield Wednesday score
Empics

Fernando Forestieri's goal is all that separates the teams at the break.

The hosts have been worth their lead and the impressive Lucas Joao and Barry Bannan have both had chances to extend their lead.

Hull City have enjoyed plenty of possession but have so far failed to create any real chances.

I wouldn't be shocked if Steve Bruce looks to make a change or two at the interval.

Sheff Wed 1-0 Hull

When the all comes in to Barry Bannan, Elmohamady stood off him. He has got to get closer and he's got away with it because it was a bad strike from Bannan.

Peter SwanEx-Hull defender on BBC Radio Humberside

Sheff Wed 1-0 Hull

Oh, Barry Bannan!

The Scotland international brings down Kieran Lee's lofted cross at the back post and, on his favoured left foot, cracks his shot high over the bar.

He really should have hit the target there.

Sheff Wed 1-0 Hull

Sheffield Wednesday fans clearly liking what they're seeing from their side.

An attack breaks down when Barry Bannan plays a pass just behind Fernando Forestieri but the home crowd give the idea a warm round of applause.

There's a real sense that this could be the season the Owls make a real fist of getting back to the top flight after 15 years away.

Sheff Wed 1-0 Hull

Just a bit of housekeeping to catch up on.

Hull midfielder Mo Diame picked up a yellow for a foul in the build up to that Joao chance so it's 1-1 in terms of bookings.

Sheff Wed 1-0 Hull

Lucas Joao
Rex Features

Wonderful play by home striker Lucas Joao nearly makes it 2-0 to the hosts.

The big Portuguese striker shows lovely strength, control and movement to fashion a shooting chance from 20 yards out.

Allan McGregor makes a real mess of it in the Hull goal and the visitors clear it out for a corner that Tom Lees heads into the side-netting.

YELLOW CARD

Sheff Wed 1-0 Hull

Sheffield Wednesday man Sam Hutchinson picks up his seventh yellow card of the season for a very poor challenge on Abel Hernandez.

The resultant free-kick breaks to Jake Livermore and his low volley brings a low save from Owls keeper Kieren Westwood.

Sheff Wed 1-0 Hull

They can't complain about offside because there was someone on the post. But the striker was stood there in the middle by himself. Steve Bruce won't be happy with the defending. It was schoolboy defending.

Peter SwanEx-Hull defender on BBC Radio Humberside

Sheff Wed 1-0 Hull (Forestieri)

Fernando Forestieri
Rex Features

It might be slightly against the run of play but Sheffield Wednesday won't care.

Hull fail to deal with a corner and when the ball is played back in for a third time it is headed down into the path of Italian forward Fernando Forestieri and he swivels to score from six yards out.

Hull appeal for offside but Curtis Davies and Ahmed Elmohamady looked like they were both playing the Owls man onside.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Hull

Hull City nearly open up the hosts on the break.

Lovely scooped ball from Mo Diame releases Moses Odubajo and his cross is scrambled out for the first of two corners by Michael Turner.

The hosts deal with both set pieces, though replays show the Tigers should have been awarded a third.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Hull

No real chances of note so far but plenty of nice touches from both sides.

Hull City have shaded possession but the Owls look good when they get the ball and move it forward quickly, with Portuguese stiker Lucas Joao worrying the Tigers with his presence.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Hull

Brief stoppage in play as Hull City striker Abel Hernandez gets some treatment after being knocked down off the ball by Owls defender Michael Turner.

Turner perhaps a tad lucky to get away with that as he blocked the Uruguayan's run quite cynically.

He's ok to continue.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Hull

Owls forward Fernando Forestieri lets fly from 20 yards but experienced Hull captain Michael Dawson charges it down and keeper Allan McGregor comes to the edge of the six-yard box to make an easy catch.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Hull

There was a bit of contact but it wasn't a penalty. If it was in midfield I would've played on as well.
