Sheffield Wednesday fans react to surprise debut for teenage defender in FA Cup clash
and live on Freeview channel 276
The 19-year-old, a centre-half by trade, is expected to line up at right-back while midfielders Kieran Lee, Massimo Luongo and Joey Pelupessy all return to the starting 11.
Manager Garry Monk has also recalled Jacob Murphy and top-scorer Steven Fletcher, who has been given the captain’s armband.
Here’s what you’ve been saying on Twitter about Monk’s team selection.
@willflower1867 When I see a cup tie I expect to see players who have hardly featured getting a run out, but today I am surprised not to see Bates, Odubajo and Wildsmith not getting a game. It’s great to see youngsters getting a run out though like Osaze. #swfc
@swfc_news97 Very interesting team selection. Good luck to Urhoghide, will be good to see how he fits in and a real chance for some fringe players #wawaw #swfc
@HuttonKeely I really hope he gives us something to smile about so good luck Osaze
@gravy_pod Depending on how long Palmer is out for there may be a gap, for him to grab, at right back. Best of luck Osaze!
@SteelTaylord So the #swfc teamsheet is out and the stupid people amongst us are losing their minds. Did you really expect us to play a full squad in a game that means absolutely nothing to us?
@RobertDrummondd Good luck mate. Play your game, hopefully you can break into the league WAWAW
@Tonester1985 With that line up I feel sorry for everyone who made the trip today. Should be free tickets. Ridiculous #swfc
@__JBH___ Adam Reach finally on the left and Murphy on the right. No Hutchinson, a balanced midfield. Good lineup.
@RocketOwl1986 Rather a kid play then Joey P. Absolutely no point in him playing as he won’t be here next season as well as being poor anyway
@IbbotsonShaun Good luck to the lad. WAWAW and behind all our players
