Wednesday continued their preparations for the new season with a 1-1 draw against Championship side Leeds United at Hillsborough.
Former Whites midfielder David Prutton had fired Wednesday ahead in the first half before in-demand winger Max Gradel levelled the scores late on from the penalty spot.
It was a good workout for the Owls in their first friendly match on home soil this summer and trialist striker Padraig Amond got another outing.
A decent crowd gathered at Hillsborough and Wednesday made a bright start, which resulted in former Leeds man Prutton firing the hosts ahead.
Gary Megson's men continued to play well and when the visitors put some pressure on the Owls goal, the Wednesday defence dealt well with all that was thrown at them.
Ramon Nunez came inches from connecting to a dangerous cross as Leeds looked to hit back and then Wednesday had calls for a penalty waved away following a foul on Prutton as the referee deemed the incident to be outside the box. Jermaine Johnson struck the resulting set-piece high over the bar.
Another form Owl in Lloyd Sam was playing for the Elland Road club and he came close to levelling things shortly after the restart but Rob Jones was able to get back to clear the effort off the line.
Chances came at both ends before Leeds found the leveller with six minutes to go.
Reda Johnson fouled Gradel inside the box and the latter stepped up to drill home the visitors' equaliser.
Wednesday: Weaver, Buxton (O'Connor 46), Bennett, Prutton, R Jones, R Johnson, Sedgwick, Semedo, Madine, Amond (D Jones 57), J Johnson
Leeds: Rachubka, Connolly, Kisnorbo, Clayton, Bromby, Parker (Bodor 12), Gradel, Brown (Osbourne 67), Paynter (Sam 46), Nunez (McCormack 46), Mendy (White 74)
