Sheffield Wednesday boss Tony Pulis has claimed that he “will deal with” the situation concerning defender Moses Odubajo and his reaction to Nottingham Forest’s second goal.
The Owls struggles under Pulis continued last night as they were beaten 2-0 by Forest, who headed into the game having taken just one point from their last seven games.
Lewis Grabban scored the Reds’ second and footage emerged after the game that appeared to show Odubajo celebrating with the opposition forward.
The Wednesday defender took to Twitter in an attempt to explain what had happened after the game, suggesting that the footage had been misconstrued and that he was telling Grabban it would be ruled out.
The loss is frustrating for myself and the team. I would never high 5 another player for scoring against us. I said to Grabban no way is that a goal because of the foul and laughed it off thinking the goal wouldn’t stand. 1/3

Pulis was pressed on the incident after the game and told BBC journalist Andy Giddings that he was aware of the video, adding: “I will deal with it.”
The Welshman replaced Garry Monk as Owls boss in the November international break and hasn’t had the impact that many were hoping he would, with Wednesday yet to win since he took charge.

The only emotion this man should have had is anger and frustration. I hope he’s played his last game for us tbh. Get out of my club and take some of the other over paid spineless cretins with you. 😁 Have a good day! #swfc https://t.co/cH9W18ODsh

Don’t want to see him play again, feels like a kick in the teeth and I’ve heard his excuse, why wasn’t he appealing to officials for foul, sorry don’t believe him, clearly laughing and happy high five.
