Sheffield Wednesday restored some pride back into the blue and white half of Sheffield with a hard fought point against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane last night.
The Owls put in a stern defensive display in manager Jos Luhukay’s first game in charge since taking over last weekend and the Belgian manager will be happy with what he saw from his side and will be looking to build in the next few weeks no doubt.
Playing a new 3-5-2 formation and with plenty of players out through injury, the Owls put in a resolute display with some key performances from players who’ve not qutie been at the races in most games this term.
One such player was Daniel Pudil, and he was awarded the official man of the match following the game after some excellent defensive work and two rasping long range efforts which nearly gifted the Owls all three points.
Plenty of Wednesday fans took to Twitter following the game to give their thoughts on Pudil’s performance, and it’s fair to say there was some positive reaction to the left back’s showing…
Was immense well done lad. Wildsmith Close 2nd. But could be shared to the entire team in regards to effort and desire. So, so, so much better ????????????????????
