Sheffield Wednesday fans lambast Moses Odubajo for role in Hull defeat

Sheffield Wednesday recorded their first defeat under Garry Monk on Tuesday night as Hull City ran out the victors on their own patch.

Tom Eaves’ second-half header was enough to secure all three points at the KCOM Stadium having only been on the pitch for a matter of six minutes.

The Owls rued the absence of Steven Fletcher, who was a shock omission through injury as neither Sam Winnall nor Atdhe Nuhiu could convert any of their chances – Wednesday recorded a total of 12 shots in the game.

The south Yorkshire club slipped to eighth in the table ahead of their fixture with Wigan Athletic on Saturday as they also won in midweek.

Hull’s goal came from good work by Eric Lichaj out on the flank as he beat Wednesday right-back Moses Odubajo to float a pin-point cross onto the head of summer arrival Eaves.

Several of the Hillsborough faithful have since taken to Twitter to criticise the 26-year-old.

One demanded Monk stop playing the right-back while another fan said Odubajo was at fault for the goal, hinting that it wasn’t the first time this season.

Can Monk make the playoffs with SWFC?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 5 foot 10 defender used to play for Hull before a severe injury put him out of action for nearly two years. He was signed for Wednesday this summer by former boss Steve Bruce having also played under him in east Yorkshire.

Another supporter called his performance a ‘stinker’ with a further member of the Owls crowd suggesting he wasn’t yet at his best.

Here’s the best of the reaction:
