'Big call putting Urhoghide in against Leeds' - Sheffield Wednesday fans react to team news for Yorkshire derby
Young right-back Osaze Urhoghide kept his place in Sheffield Wednesday’s starting line-up for the Yorkshire derby at Leeds United following his impressive debut in the FA Cup win at Brighton and Hove Albion last week.
However, former Leeds defender Tom Lees misses out through illness while winger Kadeem Harris is on the bench – the first time this season he has been left out of the starting 11 in the Championship.
Elsewhere, Wednesday manager Garry Monk – returning to one of his former clubs – has brought back Barry Bannan and Sam Winnall, replacing Joey Pelupessy and injured leading scorer Steven Fletcher respectively.
There is also a place among the substitutes for young winger, Ben Hughes.
Here’s what Wednesday fans have had to say about today’s team selection on Twitter.
@RussPhangan I can live with that! Shame no Lees
@ReganJay1 Harris on bench! Don’t get that one Monk
@PeterNaldrett Glad to see Urhoghide in again after his showing at Brighton. Winnall needs to make his mark.
@comeonWednesday Got to be the worse team we’ve had for a long time. Winnall wouldn’t get in a pub team, he’s useless.
@HerbertsGone We seriously need a centre forward.
@L0RD_H I hope I’m wrong but this team does have a little whiff of the Jos about it.
@jack231997 Think I would have rather started Pelupessy over Lee, but it’s gonna be a Luongo masterclass anyway #swfc
@YesWeCrann Big call from Monk to put 19-year-old Urhoghide in against Leeds today, but he earned it his performance v Brighton…
Ben Hughes, also 19, on the bench for the first time too. Big one, this.
@Lee_Turt You just know there is a bullet header from Urhoghide today straight in the top corner. #swfc
@gambler_cursed Winnall’s sort of game today, gritty player for a gritty Yorkshire derby! Hopefully #lufc play nothing like they did 1st half on Monday #LEESW #swfc #swfclive #twitterwhites
@johnrocknrolla That line up. Hopefully Leeds won’t repay the 6-0. #swfc
@DutchMcLovin I hope I’m wrong but BIG mistake not playing Sam Hutchinson today @swfc. I would have even sacrificed Bannan to play him !! #swfc #UTO
@danfowler09 Murphy looked sharp against Brighton, I'd play him off Winnall with that pace #swfc
