The first leg of both Sky Bet Championship Play-Off semi finals have now ended all square, after Huddersfield Town and Sheffield Wednesday played out a 0-0 draw in their first leg.

This followed their Championship rivals Reading and Fulham cancelling each other last night in a 1-1 draw.

It’s difficult to tell which set of fans will be happier following the stalemate this afternoon, but Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal has described himself as “moderately happy.”

Speaking to the official Sheffield Wednesday website, he said: “I am moderately happy today. We tried to win the game but both goalkeepers didn’t have much to do in this match.”

“But now we can go to Hillsborough and play in front of our fans.”

Sheffield Wednesday have an excellent home record, and under the lights with nearly 30,000 fans cheering them, it’ll be a daunting task for the Terriers.

“We always play better when we are at home, this cannot be said for all the teams in the Championship, but for us the supporters make a big difference to our players,” said Carvalhal.

Discussing today’s performance at the John Smith stadium, the Wednesday boss was pleased with what his players showed him.

He said: “We have talked about the efficiency of our game this week and this was a very efficient performance.”

“We were disciplined, we limited Huddersfield in the final third but we did not get a goal ourselves so I would say we are moderately happy but not euphoric.”

The second leg of the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off between these two sides takes place on Wednesday, with the winner facing either Fulham or Reading in the final, for a place in the Premier League.
