  1. That's all for now, folks

    FT: Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Thanks for joining us for this one. Don't forget, the FA Cup second-round continueshere.

    Derby stay third in the Championship after that 0-0 draw at Hillsborough, while Sheffield Wednesday climb above Birmingham City into seventh place in the table.

    Bradley Johnson

    The Rams' Bradley Johnson went closest to winning the game but his close-range effort struck the crossbar - you can read more in our match report by clicking here.

    Until next time, good bye, and enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

  2. Reaction

    FT: Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Derby goalkeeper Lee Grant tells Sky Sports:

    "It's a good point in the end. We knew they wouldn't role over today. In the end, probably a fair result. It's nice to be back involved and a nice clean sheet."

  3. Reaction

    FT: Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Sheffield Wednesday's Liam Palmer tells Sky Sports:

    "Both defences did really well. Derby are a great side on a good run. If we can take points off teams like Derby then we can creep up this league."


    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    It is all over. They will take a point each after a goalless draw.

  5. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Chris Martin drills a show just wide from close range but the whistle had already gone because his Derby teammate Darren Bent was offside in the build-up.

  6. YELLOW CARD (Fernando Forestieri)

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    The hosts' Fernando Forestieri is booked for a foul on Johnny Russell in the dying embers of this match.

  7. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    We are into three minutes of added time at the end of this game. Can anyone find a late, late winner?

  8. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Derby's George Thorne has a go from 25, 30 yards but his right-foot shot is well, well wide of goal.

  9. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Well, things just got rather exciting in the closing stages of this game, didn't they, but still neither side has found the breakthrough - yet.

    They are both going for it though.

  10. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Darren Bent

    Derby substitute Darren Bent has the ball in the back of the net but he had already been called back after being caught offside.

  11. CLOSE!

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    At the other end, from a Sheffield Wednesday set-piece, Glenn Loovens climbs highest at the far post but his glancing header drops just wide.

    Both sides have had big, big chances to win this game in the last two minutes.


    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Johnny Russell touches the indirect free-kick to Bradley Johnson and, from 10 yards out, Johnson smacks a powerful shot straight onto the crossbar. What a lucky let-off for Sheffield Wedneday.

  13. Indirect free-kick

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Is this the moment? Derby have an indirect free-kick inside the box after a pass back to the goal keeper from Wednesday's Glenn Loovens.

  14. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Sheffield Wednesday's Ross Wallace fires a decent strike towards goal from range but, always rising, his shot goes about half a yard over the crossbar.

  15. SUBSTITUTION (Derby)

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Derby make their third and final change, with Darren Bent coming on for Andreas Weimann - who has put in an entirely forgettable performance.

  16. SUBSTITUTION (Sheff Wed)

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Eduardo Lucas Joao comes off for the hosts, after putting in a decent shift up top, and Norwich loanee Gary Hooper replaces him.

  17. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    As critical as I may have sounded about the lack of attacking quality on display so far in this game, it has to be said that Sheffield Wednesday have been brilliantly well-organised at the back. Derby simply haven't been able to get in behind them, as yet.

    Andreas Weimann leaps over Keiren Westwood
  18. YELLOW CARD (Daniel Pudil)

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Sheffield Wednesday's Daniel Pudil goes into the referee's book for a deliberate foul on Jacob Butterfield, that halted a Derby counter attack.

  19. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Derby finally force Owls keeper Keiren Westwood to make a save, as Bradley Johnson has a go with a placed, left-footed shot from outside the area, but it is waist-high and a relatively comfortable stop for Westwood.

  20. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Is that double change from Derby boss Paul Clement a sign that he is unimpressed with his side's showing so far? They are still yet to have an effort on target.

    Paul Clement

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Winger Tom Ince, who has not been in this game whatsoever, is replaced by Johnny Russell for Derby, while defender Stephen Warnock also comes off, with Chris Baird coming on.

  22. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Things are warming up. There is much more urgency about this game now. Derby have improved but still Sheffield Wednesday look more likely to score first.

  23. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Ross Wallace goes in late on Derby's Bradley Johnson and they have a bit of a go at each other but there is nothing serious in that and they calm down. No bookings required.

  24. CLOSE!

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    The ball rolls out to Sheffield Wednesday left-back Daniel Pudil, in acres of space on the edge of the area, but his low shot flies wide. That was a good chance for the hosts.

  25. YELLOW CARD (Sam Hutchinson)

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Derby win a free-kick very close to the edge of the penalty area, slightly left of centre.

    Sam Hutchinson gets his 11th booking of the season for his foul on Stephen Warnock.

    From the free-kick, Derby striker Chris Martin's shot clips the top of the wall and deflects wide for a corner.

  26. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Sheffield Wednesday v Derby County

    Owls boss Carlos Carvalhal shows his skills on the touchline. How long will he wait before making any substitutions? The game could do with an injection of energy.

  27. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Derby have their best chance so far, but Bradley Johnson's free header goes over the bar.

    That was a good ball into the box from Jacob Butterfield, but the opportunity was wasted.

  28. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Neither side made any changes at the break. Will we see a change in the tempo of the game?

  29. KICK-OFF (second half)

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Derby playing in their changed kit of dark grey shirts and white shorts, get the second half started.

  30. The teams are back out

    HT: Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    The players are back out for the second half at Hillsborough, where the weather is at least dry, if not all that warm.

  31. Expecting better from Derby?

    HT: Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Derby were in terrific form heading into this match. Surely they will step things up after the break?

    Paul Clement
  32. First-half stats

    HT: Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Meanwhile, it's been interesting, but not gripping so far at Hillsborough. Here are the stats from the first 45 minutes:

    Newcastle v Liverpool is also coming up later in the Premier League, while Newcastle Falcons host Saracens in the Rugby Premiership from 15:00 GMT.


    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Referee Graham Scott calls time on the first 45 minutes and we remain goalless.

    Sheffield Wednesday's Ross Wallace produced the best - and only - effort on target of the half but his well-hit volley was saved by Lee Grant.

  35. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    We are about to see two minutes of added time at the end of this first half.

  36. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    As half-time approaches, can Sheffield Wednesday make the most of their good spell and find the opening goal? Hillsborough is starting to get a bit noisier.

    A good sliding interception from Derby left-back Stephen Warnock halts another Owls attack down their right.

    Sheffield Wednesday v Derby County
  37. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    The home side are definitely on top, it has to be said. No goals yet though, and just the one shot on target.

  38. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Derby's Chris Martin is almost through on goal at one end, but he can't quite stretch enough to bring the ball down.

    At the other end, Fernando Forestieri then immediately wins a corner for Sheffield Wednesday, but the subsequent delivery is too deep to trouble Derby.

  39. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Sheffield Wednesday's Ross Wallace receives treatment on the pitch after a tackle from Stephen Warnock, but he is OK to continue.

  40. Dutiful dad

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Ince is in the crowd at Hillsborough to watch his son Tom in action for the Rams.

    Derby's number 23 is yet to really make an impression on this game, but there is plenty of time left.

    Paul Ince
  41. YELLOW CARD (Alex Lopez)

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    The Owls' Alex Lopez is next in the book. He slides in on Bradley Johnson and there is a little bit of afters between the two but the referee calms things down.

    Alex Lopez and Bradley Johnson
  42. YELLOW CARD (Jacob Butterfield)

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Jacob Butterfield is the second Derby player to get booked as he goes in late on Eduardo Lucas Joao. Things aren't going the Rams' way so far.

  43. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Sheffield Wednesday have been the more adventurous of the two sides so far and they have another go from long distance,but this time Fernando Forestieri's effort is off target and over the bar.

  44. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Barry Bannan has a go from range for the hosts but his left-footed strike flies too high and ends up in the stands.

  45. YELLOW CARD (George Thorne)

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Derby's George Thorne picks up the first booking of the match after catching Fernando Forestieri a bit late. That's not his first foul of the game, so he had been warned by the referee.

  46. A moment of respect

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    A few minutes ago there was a touching moment at Hillsborough as both sets of fans carried out a minute's applause for the late Wednesday fan Caroline Everest, who was sadly found dead after a night out last month.

  47. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Visitors Derby are having their best spell of possession and passing the ball around inside the Sheffield Wednesday half at the moment. But they're yet to create an opening.

  48. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Portuguese Sheffield Wednesday head coach Carlos Carvalhal is in his first season in charge of the club and it is fair to say the Wednesday fans are pretty happy with the job he is doing so far.

    He'll be even more popular if they can move into the play-off zone with a win today.

    Carlos Carvalhal
  49. CLOSE!

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Wow! What a delicious, sweet strike on the half volley from Sheffield Wednesday's Ross Wallace. From just beyond the corner of the box, he forces Lee Grant into a fine, diving save. That should liven things up a bit!

  50. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    The Owls win another free-kick about 35 yards from goal. Barry Bannan curls in it but it goes over everyone's head and out, harmlessly, for a goal kick.

  51. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Chris Martin and Glenn Loovens

    Sheffield Wednesday win a free-kick in a promising position, mid-way into the Derby half, but the ball into the box comes to nothing.

  52. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Derby, incidentally, won the first corner of the game but Tom Ince's delivery was comfortably cleared by Sheffield Wednesday. The hosts are yet to get themselves clicking, in these early stages.

  53. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Wednesday have Sam Hutchinson in central defence, instead of his normal midfield role. Will that affect their stability at the back? Both teams making a cagey start, no thrust up front at either end so far. 

  54. Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby

    Derby's Tom Ince and Jacob Butterfield are both making the 150th starts of their careers this afternoon. Will either of them play a crucial part for the Rams this afternoon?

    No chances at either end just yet.

  55. KICK-OFF

    Sheff Wed 0-0 Derby
