It left the Owls waiting on the results of Derby County's 3pm kick-off at Swansea City to find out if they would be relegated from the Championship.
Chief football writer Stuart Rayner assesses the individual performers.
Keiren Westwood - excellent save from the penalty he conceded, and came to the rescue after a poor Julian Borner backpass too 7
Liam Palmer - defended well and even had a shot blocked when he got forward 6
Sam Hutchinson - secure at the heart of the defence 6
Julian Borner - almost played Lewis Grabban in to score 5
Callum Paterson - did not get many crosses in from right wing-back 6
Barry Bannan - good in the first half, less prominent in the second 7
Joey Pelupessy - worked hard so that Bannan could play 6
Adam Reach - involved in some promising moments but his crossing was poor and his header led to the penalty 6
Kadeem Harris - another who got into good positions without rounding them off 6
Andre Green - tried on both wings but had little impact on either 5
Josh Windass - always bright whether at centre-forward on his own, or out on the right when Jordan Rhodes came on 6
Jordan Rhodes (for Green, 55) - many chances fell his way as he linked well with Windass but he could not take any of them 6
