Wednesday returned to familiar ground with a place in the Championship playoffs, that's if you pay attention to the league table in mid October that is. This was achieved with a draw at Cardiff City on Wednesday evening. Meaning the Owls are now three unbeaten on the road and also ruined Neil 'Colin` Warnock`s 100% record at the Bluebirds.

Cardiff needed to start well and tried a shot straight from the kick off as Westwood calmed helped the ball over the bar. But, inside nine minutes the hosts hit the front thanks to a Peter Whittingham free kick. The playmaker curled a delicate free-kick over the wall to put them ahead and dreaming of three-points that would drag them out of the relegation zone.

Wednesday, responded with large spells of possession but aside of a few pot shots and an Adam Reach strike rarely threatened Amos` goal.

The Owls failure to score was nearly punished with the hosts coming close to a second, moments before half-time when Sean Morrison's header was cleared off the line and the Owls scrambled the ball clear.

At half-time, Carlos sent on Forestieri to mix up the Owls attack and the with his pace and invention the Owls attacks had a sense of purpose. The goal came on 55 minutes, Gary Hooper's fizzing cross finding its way to Pudil, who snapped a low shot that hit Cardiff goalkeeper Ben Amos on its way into the net.

Wednesday continued to dominate possession but found it difficult to create clear scoring opportunities against a resolute Bluebirds defence which dropped deeper and deeper to frustrate the Owls and will aid them welk against Championship opponent in their relegation battle this season.
