Sheffield Wednesday missed the chance to move up to fourth in the Championship table after conceding a late equaliser at Derby County on Wednesday evening.
Garry Monk’s men took the lead on the 23rd minute but after a solid opening 45 minutes, the Owls failed to find that second goal which would have seen Derby out of sight.
Wednesday were on course for their third consecutive victory but after Moses Odubajo tangled with Jack Marriott in the box, Chris Martin converted the subsequent penalty to deny the Owls all three points.
Despite dropping two points, Wednesday still sit just one point off the play-off places and will have the chance to move back into the top-six when they face fellow play-off hopefuls Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
At full-time Wednesday’s official Twitter account announced the full-time result, which was flooded with many responses from some of the Owls’ faithful.

A lot of supporters seemed in agreement that their side didn’t capitalise on their first-half performance and some had strong opinions on Garry Monk’s substitutions.
Here we take a look at the best reactions to the full-time tweet…
2 points dropped! Poor decision from Monk to sub Rhodes & Fletcher we just invited pressure 😠

Thanks for sitting back again Monk, loved that second half…. Now to find my head

I’m not a football genius but you would think that after already throwing away about 10 points from sitting back this season it might be better to try and get a second goal????

Paid the price for not capitalising in first half and for defensive subs. Invited the draw. #swfc

Fletcher & Harris caused Derby most of the problems so of course they get substituted!!

Monk to blame why Harris why both forwards when we were in charge. Monk is so negative when will he learn 😡

A stuck record we are this season. Dominate teams without putting them to bed then we end up hanging on at the end of matches to scrape any points. What I will say is we're so impressive at times and that is very encouraging I do think it will come good, very good.
