‘Stupid’, ‘Very dangerous’ – Loads of Sheffield Wednesday fans react to turning point during Blackburn thumping

Published

on

Sheffield Wednesday suffered their third consecutive defeat on home soil on Saturday afternoon as they crashed to an emphatic 5-0 defeat against Blackburn Rovers.

The Owls fell behind to Lewis Holtby’s 19th-minute effort before Massimo Luongo was shown the red card for a dangerous challenge on Lewis Travis, and the floodgates then opened after this as Rovers sealed a resounding win at Hillsborough.

The result means Wednesday have now lost serious ground in their hunt for a play-off place, with their goal difference taking a significant hit, and many of the club’s supporters will identify Luongo’s red-card incident as the point of no return.

Luongo was making his second consecutive start for the Owls following his display during the 2-0 win over Leeds last weekend, but he endured a more miserable afternoon on this occasion as his late tackle proved to be key to how the match panned out.
