‘Think we will get battered’ – These Sheffield Wednesday fans are not happy as Steel City derby XI confirmed

Published

Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to end a run of four successive defeats when they take on local rivals Sheffield United tonight.

The Owls have been woeful in recent weeks and the 4-0 reverse at home to Norwich last week was particularly alarming.

Therefore, manager Jos Luhukay has made several changes for the Steel City derby, with Wednesday seemingly setting up with a back five.

Captain Tom Lees, Michael Hector and Jordan Thorniley are the central defenders, whilst Ash Baker and Morgan Fox will play down the flanks.

Further forward, the usual midfield partnership of Joey Pelupessy and Barry Bannan will be in the middle of the park, with Matt Penney and Adam Reach supporting lone striker Steven Fletcher.

Despite Luhukay’s pre-match claims, Fernando Forestieri hasn’t made the bench, although there are several attacking options should Wednesday need to change things.

It’s fair to say this selection hasn’t gone down well with the supporters.

Here’s how they reacted to the team on twitter…
