Sheffield Wednesday’s poor form continued on Saturday as they were absolutely battered by Brentford.
The Bees outplayed the Owls in almost every department, rushing into a 3-0 win before half-time.
The London club didn’t take their foot off the gas either, netting two more times in the second half to run out 5-0 winners.
Wednesday’s woes were evident early on, going 1-0 down within 10 minutes, and there was only one man to blame for the opener.
Unfortunately, Cameron Dawson once again found himself red-faced, failing to catch an initial shot from a Brentford forward, before Josh Dasilva converted the rebound.
The goalkeeper should have done a lot better with the initial save as it looked like he could have either kept hold of it or parried it away from danger.
Understandably, fans were far from happy with the stopper after this mistake and they took to social media to vent their frustrations.
Say what you want, Dawson is Not good enough #swfc

Cameron Dawson is a joke. Barely league 1 standard. Why can’t the manager see this? Unbelievable #swfc

Dawson worst keeper in league.

For one section of supporters, this was the final straw for them when Dawson is concerned.
Indeed, there were plenty of calls for the stopper to be taken out of the side in the near future, with a number of fans imploring Garry Monk to drop him in favour of Joe Wildsmith.
It’s not nice to say it about any player, but perhaps Dawson could do with a spell on the sidelines to recompose himself after this latest mistake.

Think Wildsmith needs a run in goal, Dawson’s confidence is shot #swfc

Dawson needs a break for now, this cannot help his confidence! #swfc
We have other options!

Case closed regarding wildsmith starting….. sounds like a very long 90 mins at this rate…. #swfc

Wildsmith should have kept his place. Dawson is a complete liability. No one ever looks comfortable playing in front of him.
