A number of Sheffield Wednesday fans have been hailing the performance of defender Osaze Urhoghide following the Owls’ vital 2-1 win away at Barnsley on Saturday.
Darren Moore’s side headed into the game needing to take all three points to give themselves a chance of survival. They managed to pick up a much-needed win against a Barnsley side who had taken 28 points from a possible 30 heading into the fixture. It was a performance that should give a little bit of hope that they can pull off a great escape.
One player who was instrumental to the victory for the Owls was Urhoghide, with the defender having been in excellent form for Moore’s side throughout and preventing Barnsley from taking advantage of getting the ball forwards which is a key part of their game. The 20-year-old showed a great maturity and managed to keep his side solid for most of the game.
Urhoghide managed to make an impressive eight clearances, four tackles and two interceptions, as well as winning 11 aerial duels and five ground duels (Sofascore). It was a near faultless display from the defender who looks to have a very bright future whatever happens with the Owls this campaign and they will be just hoping they can keep hold of him.
Many Sheffield Wednesday fans were quick to heap praise on the defender after the win and suggest that the Owls need to do all that they can to try and keep him at the football club.
