Kieran Dowell made his debut for Sheffield United in their 1-0 home defeat to Barnet in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.
Dowell is a new signing at the Championship club, having joined on loan from Everton.
The 21-year-old scored 10 times in 43 appearances whilst on loan at Nottingham Forest during the 2018-19 campaign.
However, the 5ft 9in midfielder’s Sheffield United career did not get off to the best possible start.
Dowell was actually named Sheffield United’s MOTM against Barnet, but the decision did not go down well with everyone.
Indeed, whilst there were plenty of Sheffield United fans pleased with Dowell’s performance on the afternoon, others were left underwhelmed.
There is no question that the third-round defeat will go down as a huge disappointment for the Championship club, but their focus will now switch to their home league match against Queens Park Rangers this weekend.

The only positive is dowell, been impressed so far especially his crosses. The rest of the team is league 2 at best, defensively poor and too slow in decisions. Poor

Watching this we need a few more players brought in, very poor with exception to Dowell who looks comfortable on the ball

Well you can see why the 1st 11 doesn’t get changed very often, no one pushing for a 1st team spot on that showing, Dowell did ok but you could tell he’s not been playing. Bryan grew into the game as it went on. Johnson was poor and didn’t look interested to me
