The result left Blackpool 17 points away from safety in the division, with relegation looking increasingly likely with games running out.
Wednesday recorded their 18th clean-sheet of the season; a wonderful achievement that in part must go down to the excellent form of defender Tom Lees.
The centre-back signed for Wednesday from Leeds United in 2014 and he has gone on to make 38 appearances this season, performing brilliantly week in, week out and recently enjoying a stint with the captain’s armband.
He arrived from Leeds for an undisclosed fee and is already looking like a wonderful addition to the Owls’ squad.
Wednesday remain 13 points outside the play-off places but they are on a run of form that suggests they will keep fighting until the end of the season.
After the match, we took to Twitter to see what Wednesday fans thought of Lees’ performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
Any other year Tom Lees would be a stone cold lock for my POTY vote. #thanksL**ds— Jeffrey Paternostro (@jeffpaternostro) March 7, 2015
Don't blame it on the sunshine, don't blame it on the moonlight, don't blame it on the good times, blame it on Tom Lees.— Dan (@danielrhughes11) March 8, 2015
Have i really just seen a stat that in 38 games for Wednesday, Tom Lees has been booked once?. That is unbelievable if that is true #TOPLAD— Martin Williams (@MartinW1867) March 8, 2015
