Sheffield United 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday: Cameron Dawson penalty save earns Owls draw

Cameron Dawson’s penalty save was his second in successive games

Cameron Dawson saved a first-half penalty to earn Sheffield Wednesday a point from a goalless draw in a frenetic derby at Sheffield United.

The 23-year-old Owls keeper dived to his left to brilliantly turn David McGoldrick’s 15th-minute spot-kick around the post.

Dawson had earlier superbly tipped a 30-yard shot from John Fleck behind, and kept out further efforts from McGoldrick and Mark Duffy as Wednesday defended resolutely to withstand wave after wave of pressure from the Blades.

And, in stoppage time at the end of the game, Blades captain Billy Sharp flashed a header wide from a corner while Oliver Norwood saw a free-kick pushed away by Dawson with the last kick of the game.

Wednesday, who arrived at Bramall Lane on the back of four successive defeats, registered only one effort on target when substitute Marco Matias dribbled a shot through to home keeper Dean Henderson.

But Morgan Fox, who conceded the hosts’ penalty when he brought down Duffy, missed their best chance when he shot well over the bar from five yards following a corner.

More to follow.
