2 criminally underrated Sheffield Wednesday players Tony Pulis needs to use more

Published

on

A new era for Sheffield Wednesday will begin this weekend as Tony Pulis prepares to take charge of his first game for the Owls.

The experienced boss was named as Garry Monk’s successor over the international break and he will be tasked with getting the Yorkshire side out of the relegation zone as quickly as possible.

One of the positives for players when a new manager comes in is that they have a clean slate to show what they can do.

And, there are several who had been on the fringes under Monk that will hope to make an impact in this campaign. Keeper Keiren Westwood is the obvious one, with Pulis already admitting he wants to bring the Irishman back into the fold.

Here we look at TWO other players who should be used more by the former Stoke City chief…

In what year was Sheffield Wednesday formed?

Matt Penney

The left-back was very highly-rated when he broke through at Hillsborough but his career has stalled somewhat, despite an impressive loan spell with St. Pauli last season.

Monk wasn’t too keen on the 22-year-old, as he featured in just two league games. However, he has a lot to offer and brings a balance to the team as he can deliver a good ball and backs up the attack well.

If Pulis can help the youngster improve defensively, he could become a good full-back at this level.

Izzy Brown

Whilst injuries haven’t helped, Brown’s season hasn’t really got going at all.

At his best, he should offer this squad the creativity and spark in the final third that they sometimes lack and it will be up to the new boss to help unlock that.

The England youth international was tipped to be a huge star a few years ago, so the talent is there and a consistent run could help him fulfil that potential.
