Sheffield Wednesday rounded off a disastrous eight days as they were thrashed by South Yorkshire rivals Rotherham to suffer their third defeat on the bounce.
It was a horrible night at the New York Stadium for Gary Monk’s men, who remain on minus four points, already nine points from safety after winning just twice this season.
Wednesday needed a reaction from the disappointment against Luton Town on Saturday, but found themselves three goals and a man down inside the opening 45 minutes after a simply shocking first-half performance.
Firstly, Jamie Lindsay took advantage of some hesitant goalkeeping from Cameron Dawson to head the Millers in front, before things went from bad to worse for the Owls, who had Tom Lees sent off – with Daniel Barlaser smashing home the resulting penalty.
Wednesday’s misery evening was complete on the stroke of half-time when Lindsay slotted home Rotherham’s third after some more sceptical goalkeeping from Dawson.
It left Owls fans absolutely fuming with the outcome – with plenty express their anger towards the board, and under pressure Gary Monk on social media.

Disgusting. Absolutely putrid. The most pathetic Wednesday team I’ve ever seen. Absolutely minging!

It’s a joke. We’ve gone from promotion contenders to relegation contenders in the space of 3/4 seasons. Yeah we might have a point deduction this season but it doesn’t make up for the shambles that has been going on for the last 3 years

What a joke we are! The club is rotten to the core. Be another 20 years before we see the premier league at least.

This is one of the worst performances I remember seeing. Absolutely abject from the restart after the drone. No positives from what I saw. Significant changes needed otherwise the club we love is going down for a long time. Very sad to see #uto #wawaw

It’s takes a lot for things to get even worse for a football club that starts the season off on minus 12. But well done Gary Monk. You’ve taken us backwards. Tonight and Saturday was the worst I’ve ever seen.

If the fans were able to attend, they would be ripped apart… absolutely disgraceful
