Sheffield Wednesday fans laud Julian Borner after another superb showing

Sheffield Wednesday got back to winning ways after defeating Wigan Athletic 1-0 at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon.

Massimo Luongo, who was given his first league start for the club, scored the only goal of the game just before the hour mark to move the Owls to within one point of the playoffs.

The Australian international directed Adam Reach’s cut-back pass accurately past the visiting goalkeeper.

It means Garry Monk has amassed ten points from a possible 15 to start his reign in south Yorkshire.

The 1-0 victory also sees Wednesday pick up their fourth clean sheet of the season, and one man has been central to all of them – Julian Borner.

The 28-year-old joined the club in the summer on a free transfer from Arminia Bielefeld and won August’s Player of the Month award.

Borner has played every single minute in the league so far this campaign, per WhoScored.

His performances have clearly continued to catch the eye of many a Wednesday supporter as they took to Twitter to laud Borner following the victory.

One fan claimed the German was the biggest asset they’ve had in 20 years, and that he was head and shoulders above any other defender in the division while another praised the club for being able to secure him on a free.

A further member of the Hillsborough faithful believed the defender should be the club captain with one more calling him a ‘beast.’
