Sheffield Wednesday fell to a frustrating 4-1 defeat against QPR on Saturday afternoon, which plunged them deeper into relegation trouble in the Championship.
A brace from Lyndon Dykes, and goals from Stefan Johansen and Chris Willock saw the Hoops run out comfortable winners on the day, with Josh Windass scoring Sheffield Wednesday’s only goal of the match at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
Joe Wildsmith started in between the posts for the Owls, in what was his 23rd appearance of the season in all competitions.
There were some concerns from some sections of the Hillsborough faithful when Wildsmith was named in the starting XI though, with some calling for Keiren Westwood to start instead of him.
Wildsmith didn’t exactly cement his place in the starting XI for future matches though, with the goalkeeper conceding four goals on the day.
Are these facts about the Sheffield Wednesday badge true or false?
Sheffield Wednesday are set to return to action on Tuesday evening, when they host promotion-chasing Swansea City at Hillsborough.
Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday supporters took to social media to voice their frustrations at Wildsmith’s recent showing against QPR.

Neither Wildsmith or Dawson are good enough for the championship. Might be ok for Div 1 next season.

Play your best players #swfc managers!!!! We all knew Wildsmith would drop a clanger the moment Westwood was on bench despite being fit. Every time.

Tom Lees and Wildsmith have cost us any chance of staying up today

Wonder if Kachunga can play in net? He can’t be worse than wildsmith and he certainly can’t be worse than he is outfield
