Result: Simon Cox hands Nottingham Forest victory at Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday succumb to a 1-0 home loss at the hands of Nottingham Forest.

Sheffield Wednesday remain the only league side in England's top four divisions yet to keep a clean sheet following this afternoon's 1-0 loss at home to Nottingham Forest.

Wednesday's Austrian striker Atdhe Nuhiu had an opportunity to nod the home side into an early lead, but he headed over the bar from six yards out after five minutes.

In a low-key opening first 25 minutes, Simon Cox fired over the bar from 25 yards in the 10th minute and Nottingham Forest captain Andy Reid shot wide from a tight angle.

The second half was only three minutes old when Cox tapped the ball home from close range to give Forest the lead.

As the game approached the hour mark, Jose Semedo dragged an 18-yard effort wide before Connor Wickham tested Karl Darlow with a low, driven effort.

The Owls pushed for an equaliser as the game approached the final 10 minutes and substitute Jermaine Johnson dragged his shot wide with seven minutes left.

The final chance of the contest fell to the Wednesday captain Roger Johnson two minutes into injury time, but the defender saw his shot creep just wide of the post.
