The visitors showed their brightness early on, but it was Mark Reed who threatened to open the scoring.

The Bucks’ all-time top scorer troubled the Owls’ keeper with a rasping drive before a header crashed off the bar but it was strike partner Lee Morris who made it 1-0 not long after, with a close-range header.

Andy Warrington then kept the South Yorkshire side at bay with a flurry of saves in the second-half but just when Buxton thought they had wrapped up the win, Adam Hinchliffe struck two minutes from time to seal the draw.
