Sheffield Wednesday fans on Twitter were fuming with striker Atdhe Nuhiu’s performance in the 2-1 loss to Nottingham Forest on Wednesday evening.
Nuhiu thought he had put the Owls ahead in the first half, but his header was ruled out for offside. After that, goals from Forest new boys Lewis Grabban and Joao Carvalho put the home side into a comfortable lead.
With Nuhiu, who has been at the club since 2013, upfront on his own Wednesday lacked any attacking threat and barely created a chance until experienced striker Steven Fletcher was introduced to offer the 29-year-old some support.
Fletcher was then the one who pulled a goal back for Wednesday, albeit with the help of a huge deflection, but it was too late for any chance of a comeback. After the game, Owls fans took to Twitter to express their opinions on Nuhiu and his performance. Check out the best tweets below.
Awful all over tonight. Reach for some reason is undroppable but hasn’t got above 5/10 all season. Palmer has his critics but better than Baker. Fox is, well Fox. Matias ain’t good enough and neither is Nuhiu #Swfc

Nuhiu was awful, not once did he retain possession and in fact his inability to make a 20 yard pass led to their 2nd goal directly. Fox did ok considering he got no support from Joao

IMO I do not know what the Jos see’s in Matias and Nuhiu, wouldn’t even pick them for my U18’s Sunday league team. Sat Fletcher and Fessi have to start. If Jos doesn’t start picking his strongest squad against better teams, we are going to slowly start going towards relegation.

FAO anyone that shot me down last season when I said Atdhe Nuhiu was putting in half decent performances to earn a new contract and that he'd be back to the same Atdhe Nuhiu we'd seen for 4 and half years prior, listen to me next time will you… #swfc

Nuhiu and Fox are way below the required standard. Surely better to give Borukov some game time over Nuhiu, couldn't do any worse
