Sheffield Wednesday and Brentford played out a goalless draw with Bees defender Miguel Llera coming the closest to breaking the deadlock.
Llera saw his first-half header from Sam Saunders' free-kick crash back off the Wednesday crossbar.
Visiting keeper Richard Lee then kept out James O'Connor's acrobatic effort.
Wednesday defender Rob Jones went close for the home side but his header was somehow scrambled wide from inside the Brentford six-yard box.
The result leaves Wednesday in third position but they missed the chance to close the gap on second-placed Huddersfield and ends their 100% home league record this season.
Brentford remain two points outside the play-off places after extending their unbeaten away record to seven league games.
VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Sheffield Wednesday manager Gary Megson told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"We were in desperate need of scoring the first goal and they would have had to change the shape that they were playing.
"We've created twice as many efforts on goal as they had, twice as many corners and probably a lot more possession than them, but we just couldn't score.
"I think you saw at the end, from the reaction of both benches, that we were disappointed and they were jumping up and down and celebrating."
Brentford manager Uwe Rosler told BBC London 94.9:
"Not many teams come here and get a point.
"We started very brightly and created good chances.
"I think it was quite even but for an away team to play like this I think all respect to my players."
