Millwall are on course to maintain their unbeaten start to the new Championship season, having gone into half time 0-0 against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.
The first chance of the game fell to the Owls' recently-signed striker Stevie May, who fired wide from a promising position after just three minutes.
As the first half progressed Wednesday began to increase the pressure on their opponents, and Atdhe Nuhiu came close to edging his side ahead with his powerful header which sailed narrowly over the bar.
Tom Lees was the next home player to come close to making the breakthrough, but his header was kept out by David Forde.
A cross into the box from Liam Palmer almost picked out teammate Nuhiu who was waiting in the middle, though Alan Dunne was on hand to make a vital clearance.
Jacques Maghoma then saw his shout for a penalty turned down by the referee after tumbling under a challenge from Shaun Williams, in what was the last meaningful action of the first half.
