Monk has rung the changes after the midweek FA Cup defeat against Manchester City with Steven Fletcher among those coming in for a start after proving his fitness.

However it’s the team selection elsewhere which has angered a number of supporters.

In particular, the decision not to start Wildsmith afetr his performance against City, plus dropping Fernando Forestieri, has left many Owls supporters shaking their heads.

Here’s a selection of reaction from fans on social media:

@charlieswfc_: Why drop Wildsmith after he played so well against city? That’s actually criminal

@WillTemple9: Hunt deserves a start over pelupessy

@MEGAN95465233: Bring Westwood and Wildsmith Back !!

@SergejOdstrom: Im trying to keep the faith here mr monk! Making it Hard!

@JamesOwl2006: Wildsmith has an amazing game against aguero, mahrez,Jesus and sterling but Dawson gets in the side????????????

@ads42: Monk as lost the plot.

@JaseRBennett: #monkout #swfc Monk trying to get the sack. Pelupessy, Dawson should not start. Tom Lees is an absolute car crash and dropping Forestieri! Clear your desk Monk you clown

@DeanMissere: WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING

@Lbriggs88: No wildsmith, no forestieri and pelupessy starts. Why am I not surprised

@wildy79: What exactly did wildsmith and Hunt do wrong one Wednesday to warranty being dropped!?! I suppose another 14 touches for Pelupessy in a game may help the cause.
