Sheffield Wednesday fans haven’t had much to shout about in recent weeks, winning just one of their previous 11 league games.
However, the Owls’ U23 outfit have been getting the job done, winning their most recent game 2-0 against Yorkshire rivals Barnsley.
Wednesday’s youngsters’ win was spearheaded by one man as Fraser Preston netted a brace to secure the victory for his side.
The 23-year-old striker showed exactly what he’s capable of against the Tykes’ U23 outfit, and as you can imagine some fans were quite impressed by what they were seeing.
One fan even stated that Preston is Premier League-bound.

Of course, an impressive performance for the U23s led to some fans calling for him to get a shot in the first-team.
To be fair, he’d find it hard to be much worse than the Owls’ current strike force as they’ve failed to score a home goal since the turn of the year.
Whether or not he gets a run in the side remains to be seen, but he already has a little bit of experience at senior level, appearing in three Championship games in the 2018/19 season.
Get him in the first team. Can’t be any worse than what we’ve got.

Others think that although Preston is a talented player it’s the wrong time to give him a shot in the first-team.
He performed well last time he was in the first team IMO. I’d give him a go in a 433 but not with the current side until monk gone

Couldnt be a worse time to put a young player in with how negative the fans are atm, could potentially ruin him.

In other news, Chansiri can’t be too hasty with one huge decision.
