The top-two gap's set at two points
Sheffield United's 1-1 draw at Colchester United has left Wednesday just two points behind the Blades and second place with both sides having played the same number of games.
The Blades played their final game-in-hand on Wednesday tonight and could only manage a point against the U's. Will Hoskins had given Danny Wilson's men the lead but Steve Gillespie levelled to give the hosts a share of the spoils.
It means a tense 'business end' to the season is set to unfold, if it wasn't already, with both Sheffield clubs, as well as Huddersfield Town and MK Dons, all pushing for that second automatic promotion spot, with Charlton Athletic seemingly set for the title.
Wednesday return to action at sixth-placed Notts County this weekend while United are at home against Tranmere Rovers.
