Sheffield Wednesday star looks for positives following stalemate

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan has given his thoughts on the team’s failure to beat Burton Albion in their midweek meeting.

The 27-year-old took to Twitter to admit his disappointment in the result, but has also paid credit to his opponents.

There is a big gulf between the Owls and Burton – 24 points in fact – but they could not be separated on Tuesday night at Hillsborough.

The hosts took the lead after 16 minutes when Ross Wallace struck, but Jackson Irvine found an equaliser eight minutes later.

Neither side could seal a winner, despite the Owls dominating possession and producing 20 shots to Burton’s nine, reveals BBC Sport.

Carlos Carvalhal’s side could have done with all three points to stretch away from playoff challengers Fulham, who drew with Leeds United on the same night.

However, the gap between sixth and seventh remains at five points, while just six separate the four teams in the playoff spots.
