Sheffield Wednesday succumbed to a second successive defeat in the space of just three days after Cardiff City defeated them at Hillsborough on Sunday afternoon.
The Owls drop down to sixth in the table as they picked up their first home defeat since August.
Garry Monk’s side were set back very early doors when the visitors scored two goals inside three minutes through Robert Glatzel and Junior Hoilett.
Wednesday were able to hit one back through skipper Tom Lees before the 20th minute had even passed, but neither side would score again despite the home side going close through Adam Reach and Jacob Murphy.
Following the match, several members of the Hillsborough crowd took a swipe at winger Kadeem Harris for his disappointing showing.
Yet he still offered more than the headless chicken Harris who has zero end product

Clear to see now why Harris couldn’t get into Cardiff’s team and Murphy spends every season on loan. #swfc

‘Headless chicken,’ ‘horrendous’ and ‘awful’ were three phrases used to describe how the winger played against his old club while one supporter went as far as suggesting it was why he was playing in the blue and white colours of Wednesday this season rather than their Welsh opponents.
Others pointed out Harris’ major faults, hinting at his passing, ability to beat a man as well as being far too predictable…
Harris don’t know how to pass #swfc

Far too predictable for me, does same thing every single time.

Needs to be played on the right hand side

The 26-year-old picked up a measly 6.2 rating by SofaScore having failed to provide an accurate cross from four attempts, won less than 35% of his ground duels and lost possession 12 times, so those above may have been onto something based on this showing alone.
It has led to one supporter suggesting that the wide man needs a rest while another blamed others, claiming they weren’t pulling their weight and that Monk was without several key players through injury such as top goalscorer Steven Fletcher.
He is getting worst, I am wondering if he just needs a rest, maybe the Brighton game

Your not wrong mate. He isn’t consistent enough to carry us when other players aren’t pulling there weight or we’re missing key players.

It’s not the perfect way to enter a new year and the new decade for the south Yorkshiremen, especially with the looming uncertainty hanging over their head in regards to the punishment the EFL could hand them following their charge several months ago.
