David Jones’ first goal since 12 September 2015 earned Sheffield Wednesday a draw

Sunderland maintained their unbeaten start to the Championship season with a draw at Sheffield Wednesday.

George Honeyman put the visitors ahead after four minutes, blasting in Aiden McGeady’s cross from close range.

Black Cats strikers Lewis Grabban and James Vaughan went close to making it 2-0, but David Jones’ powerful 25-yard strike brought Wednesday level.

Both goalkeepers were forced into saves before Owls striker Gary Hooper struck the bar and fired wide late on.

Simon Grayson’s men had the better of the first half, with McGeady’s delivery setting up Honeyman to score his second goal for the club after goalkeeper Keiren Westwood flew off his line.

Grabban headed a McGeady free-kick narrowly wide, Brendan Galloway was denied by Westwood and Vaughan blazed over a rebound as the relegated Premier League side looked to add to their advantage.

Wednesday had their chances however, with Jason Steele having to be alert to keep out Sam Winnall’s effort before Hooper smashed a half-volley against the bar.

But despite finishing strongly Wednesday could not find a second goal and are without a win from their opening three Championship matches.
