Sheffield Wednesday strikers Atdhe Nuhiu and Steven Fletcher revealed a celebratory handshake during the 3-1 win over Charlton Athletic on Saturday, which has not been well received by many fans of the Yorkshire club.
Fletcher twice gave the Owls the lead at the Valley on Saturday, opening the scoring after 17 minutes and then finding the net from the penalty spot in the 80th minute, after Macauley Bonne had drawn the Addicks level in the first half.
Nuhiu crashed in a header to put the result beyond all doubt in the 94th minute, leaving Garry Monk’s side just two points outside the top six.

Fletcher and Nuhiu have emerged as Monk’s first-choice forward duo and have now combined for 10 Championship goals this season.

It appears many Wednesday fans remain unconvinced by the duo’s celebration and took to Twitter to express their thoughts–rejecting the club’s suggestion that it would catch on.
