That's all for now....

So, no goals this lunchtime, but no shortage of tension and jeopardy on display.

Supporters of all four clubs in these Championship play-offs can take a bit of a breather for a couple of days, but then we're back at it.

Join us again on Tuesday evening as one side will discover they're a step closer to the promised land of the Premier League.

Until then, thanks for being with us....

Read all about it...

So, half-time in our second Championship play-off semi-final tie and it was a cagey encounter in west Yorkshire.

Read Ian Woodcock's report of how it all unfolded.

And still to come today!

League Two play-off semi-finals

There's more play-off action on the way later this evening.

It's the first legs of the League Two play-off semi-finals.

Blackpool host Luton Town and Carlisle United entertain Exeter City. Both games kick-off at 18:30 BST and we'll have all the build-up from 18:00 BST.

Still to come....

Well, you might have only just caught your breath after this weekend's first legs, but there's not much time to get comfortable until the return legs.

We go again on Tuesday night when Reading and Fulham will do battle in their second leg at the Madejski Stadium with the score evenly poised at 1-1.

Then on Wednesday night, Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield resume at Hillsborough.

Both those second legs kick-off at 19:45 BST.

Who'll break the deadlock in that one? Which two sides will be looking ahead to Wembley? Who'll be putting their heads in their hands after an agonising exit?

You'd have to say Wednesday will be the happier of the two with this result.

They came to contain Huddersfield and by and large that is exactly what they did.

Town enjoyed the majority of possession and created the few clear chances that there were, but the Owls rarely looked like buckling in a game that was high in effort if low in entertainment for the neutral.

Carlos Carvalhal's side are now eight unbeaten against Town and will fancy their chances at Hillsborough on Wednesday.

FULL-TIME

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

And that is that.

Nothing to separate them after the first leg. They'll go again at Hillsborough on Wednesday night for a place in a Wembley final....

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Wednesday player down off the touchline in Daniel Pudil, but he's quickly back on his feet for the throw-in inside his own half.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Looking like it'll finish in a stalemate here, but can someone make themselves a hero? 

INJURY TIME

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Four minutes being added on at the end of the 90.....

YELLOW CARD

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Another free-kick to Huddersfield as Adam Reach fouls Tommy Smith as he tries to break down the right side.

Yellow card for the midfielder and Huddersfield make a late change with Nahki Wells going off for Martin Cranie and also Tareiq Holmes-Dennis replaces Chris Lowe.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

To the back post it goes and Collin Quaner tries to head it back across Wednesday's area.

Kieran Lee hoists it clear for the visitors.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Off the wall goes Aaron Mooy's strike and out for another Huddersfield throw-in before Chris Lowe wins a corner off David Jones' tackle.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Free-kick to Huddersfield as Izzy Brown is fouled by the already-booked David Jones.

A way out, but what can the hosts muster?

LAST FIVE MINUTES

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Will we get a goal before we call time and reconvene at Hillsborough on Wednesday night?

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Barry Bannan has a go from distance for Wednesday and the pocket-rocket midfielder's left-foot strike just curls away from goal.

Joel Coleman looked a bit concerned for a second between the sticks for Huddersfield, but it's off target.

Still no shots on goal for Carlos Carvalhal's side.

I tell you what, Paul Ogden on BBC Radio Leeds has done a great job of sounding upbeat commentating on this one....

"Still enthralling," he says as we enter the closing stages of this first leg.

I see where he's coming from, but if you're a neutral, there's been little to get you out of your seat.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Collin Quaner's first input in this game is a moment to forget as the Huddersfield striker fails to control a spinning ball and keep it in touch just in front of the two subs benches.

Can only get better from here....

Emma Flowers: An exiled Villa fan, part of me doesn't want Huddersfield to go up as it's my local game. It's not their fault we're rubbish - so c'mon Town.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Ian Woodcock

Town have done almost everything to get the opening goal and in the form of Collin Quaner they now have a real target to hit from set pieces and crosses.

They've got 10 minutes to find what would surely prove to be a winner.

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

First change for Huddersfield sees Collin Quaner come on for Elias Kachunga up top.

Quaner is a fairly imposing looking player and the big German might cause some problems for Wednesday late on in this one. 

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Huddersfield force their eighth corner of the game and Chris Lowe delivers to the far post.

Nahki Wells tries to turn and shoot but Jordan Rhodes is there to get it clear inside the Wednesday area.

YELLOW CARD

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

David Jones is the latest Wednesday man to see a yellow card as he clings on too much to the shirt of Elias Kachunga.

He's the third Owls player to go into Paul Tierney's notebook.

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Final change for Wednesday sees Fernando Forestieri go off.

Sam Winnall is the man to replace him up top.

Jonathan Hogg meanwhile changes his Huddersfield shirt after receiving some treatment for a nose bleed.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Huddersfield again in with a great chance and Wednesday are indebted to their goalkeeper Keiren Westwood.

He's off his line in flash to prevent Nahki Wells stealing in after some indecision at the back by the Wednesday defenders.

He knew little about it, but Westwood gets it behind for a corner that comes to nothing.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Aaron Mooy again looks to float a threatening ball into Wednesday's area. Tommy Smith is the man to run on to it, but it won't sit down for the right-back and he snatches at it on the bounce and over it goes.

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Second change for Wednesday sees Jordan Rhodes, the former Huddersfield striker, come on for Steven Fletcher.

Warm applause from some sections of the home crowd, but also the odd boo.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Huddersfield's possession stats creep up to 69% but there's still so little for them to show for it.

Surely someone can find a way to unlock this Wednesday defence?

Ladies and gentleman, here's a snapshot of the only shot on target so far.

Nahki Wells' clever lob was turned over by Owls keeper Keiren Westwood 10 minutes after the break.

25 minutes to go - can we get two attempts between the sticks?!

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Another corner to Huddersfield....

Nothing doing again sadly from Aaron Mooy's delivery as Nahki Wells tries an audacious flick at the near post but behind it goes.

It looks like Wednesday are going to tweak things a little with that change.

They need to get a handle of things in midfield where they are in danger of being over run.

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

First change of the game sees David Jones come on for Ross Wallace for Sheffield Wednesday.

YELLOW CARD

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Jack Hunt the next man in the book for Sheffield Wednesday as Rajiv van La Parra skins him out wide left.

Hunt tries to keep up but only manages to bundle him to the turf.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Sir Patrick Stewart is in the crowd.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard is a big Huddersfield fan and loving it by the looks of things.

Hoepfully he can "make it so" for a goal or two before this one's done.... 

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Bit of a slip of feet from Keiren Westwood as he goes over the byline and carries the ball out for a Huddersfield corner.

Chris Lowe's inswinger is dangerous and Westwood has just enough to get it clear.

And after that bit of invention from Nahki Wells, we pause again.

But Wednesday find space at the other end and Adam Reach goes for goal with a left-foot strike, but it's going wide all the time and away from goal.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

A SHOT ON TARGET!

Huddersfield forward Nahki Wells forces Keiren Westwood to tip a lovely speculative lob over his own crossbar.

Well.....

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Lovely back heel on the edge of the Wednesday area by Huddersfield winger Rajiv van la Parra to his team-mate Tommy Smith.

But Wednesday have the numbers back to cope and clear as Smith tries to fire it across goal.

A little bit of quality just starting to creep through.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

There's a dangerous looking cross from Ross Wallace towards Adam Reach that Elias Kachunga has to head over his own bar for a corner.

But the set piece is well claimed by Joel Coleman in the Huddersfield goal as the hosts clear.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Still plenty of sunshine in west Yorkshire this lunchtime, but still nothing to test the reflexes of either goalkeeper.

Plenty of possession for both sides at the start of this second half, but again no killer ball to unlock either defence.

Huddersfield 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Early position of promise for Huddersfield as they force a throw-in deep in Wednesday's half, but back it goes to halfway and the move breaks down.
