Stats: West Ham loanee Poyet v Sheffield Wednesday's McGugan on their debuts

John Smiths Stadium - Huddersfield

Huddersfield Town and Sheffield Wednesday drew 0-0 in the Championship's early kick-off.

Huddersfield and Sheffield Wednesday played out a 0-0 draw in an evenly contested game early on Saturday. 

The two teams had a combined 31 shots on goal, with 14 finding the target, yet nobody was able to break the deadlock.

An intriguing contest came in midfield between two debutant loanee, West Ham loanee Diego Poyet for Huddersfield and Lewis McGugan of Sheffield Wednesday, brought in from Watford during the week.

McGugan has a reputation for scoring from midfield, which was why he was brought in, netting 10 times in the Championship for Watford last season.

He didn't show it against the Terriers, having just one shot at goal which landed up off target.

Poyet didn't have any but aside from that was the brighter of the two, creating two goalscoring chances. His passing was also more accurate, while he also won the ball back for his team nine times to McGugan's seven. 

Both players will improve as they get regular football under their belts, and in truth yesterday neither had terrific games - but of the pair, Poyet appeared the more confident and better all round performer.
