Sheffield Wednesday suffered yet another loss in the Championship on Saturday afternoon, as they fell to a 3-0 defeat against promotion-chasing Reading at the Madejski Stadium.
The game’s turning point came after 29 minutes in the contest, as Julian Borner’s miss-placed pass led to Reading forward George Puscas racing through on goal. Borner brought the Romanian international down in the penalty area, and was shown a straight red card after the challenge.
Michael Olise slotted home the penalty confidently to give Veljko Paunovic’s side a deserved lead on the day. Lucas Joao then made it 2-0 in the second-half, as he fired home from close-range against his former club. Andy Yiadom then rounded off an impressive Reading performance, as he made it 3-0 with a well-struck goal just two minutes from time.
Was it Adam Reach or Tom Lees that did these things?
Borner’s dismissal certainly gave Reading a sizeable advantage on the day, which will have been frustrating for Sheffield Wednesday. The defender has made 19 appearances in all competitions for the Owls this term, as they’ve struggled in this year’s campaign, with Darren Moore’s side sat 23rd in the Championship table.
Plenty of the Sheffield Wednesday supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on Borner’s impact in the match, which proved to be the main talking point.

Absolutely fuming – giving the ball away fair enough – a mistake, the decision to bring the forward down as last man and get sent off is unforgivable and amateurishly STUPID

Just when it cant get any worse, you always find away. It really is quite remarkable. The Wednesday way

His fault too. Poor control, poor pass to hutch. Should have left it from behind. Very amateur tackle. Now we're 10 men and behind.
