Sam Hutchinson and Keiren Westwood have been outcasts in the Sheffield Wednesday squad for the majority of the season.
The defender has made four appearances under Jos Luhukay this term – but none since August, which is only worsened by the goalkeeper who has failed to play at all this campaign.
Westwood made 18 appearances last term and has been shunned by Luhukay this season in favour of youngster Cameron Dawson.
Hutchinson, meanwhile, made nine appearances last term before a long-term injury setback.
Both are stalwarts in the side and players the fans want to see play regularly.
When asked about the pair’s absences and the chances of leaving the club in January, owner Dejphon Chansiri told an Owls fans forum that “it is the coach’s decision.”
Fan: Why are Sam Hutchinson and Keiren Westwood not playing:
DC: "It is the coach's decision."
Will Hutchinson leave in January?
DC: "I don't know if he is going to go or not."

There are more questions than answers after that round of fan investigation, as plenty of the club’s fans took to social media to respond to this particular exchange.
With that said, here’s how the Sheffield Wednesday supporters reacted to the answer Chansiri gave to the question regarding Hutchinson and Westwood.
And that’s the reason the coach needs to be sacked!!!

2 of the best players we've had in recent years and we're just going to let them go.. crazy

If that’s the case then the coach has to go pronto

Yet another reason aswell as the 1 win in 10 games why the man must go #swfc

If this is true, then there is no reason not to give them a chance. While we're playing badly, let them try to fix things.

Any decent coach would play Westwood. No doubt.
