Moses Odubajo has come in for criticism from Sheffield Wednesday supporters.

Wednesday fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Forest on Tuesday evening, with goals at either end of the game ensuring that they would spend even more time at the foot of the Championship table.

Odubajo came under fire from fans following his reaction to Forest’s second goal, but he says that the video was ‘misconstrued’ by those watching without context.

He said in a series of tweets after the game, “The loss is frustrating for myself and the team. I would never high 5 another player for scoring against us. I said to Grabban no way is that a goal because of the foul and laughed it off thinking the goal wouldn’t stand.

“We’re bottom of the league. No one at the club wants relegation and there’s no chance I would celebrate a goal that keeps us at the bottom.

“Out of context, videos can be misconstrued. I hope I’ve cleared it up with the fans who doubted my commitment to the team.”

Meanwhile, in his press conference, when The Star asked Pulis about the situation, he said that he’d been told about it and would be dealing it.

Odubajo is suspended for this weekend’s trip to Coventry City after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season at the City Ground, opening up a space for somebody else to come in and stake their claim for a place.
