Sheffield Wednesday earned a share of the spoils against Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon, scoring late to level the game at Hillsborough. There were many players who put in good performances, but Alex Hunt was singled out by some for his impressive cameo appearance.

The 20-year-old was introduced from the bench in the 82nd minute and came away with a lot of praise from supporters on social media. Hunt has already been tipped for a bright future, but fans are already calling for him to start in Wednesday’s next game after getting a glimpse of his talent.

Who did Sheffield Wednesday sign Josh Windass on loan from?

Against Forest, Hunt played for eight minutes, had 14 touches, completed 100% of his 12 passes, attempted two long balls with 100% accuracy and had one dribble. Kieran Lee wasn’t at his best on Saturday, so Monk may have a decision to make whether to swap the 31-year-old for the 20-year-old against Bristol City (June 28).

Hunt has made four appearances for the first-team this season and could make his fifth after Saturday. With Sam Hutchinson and Kieran Lee out of contract at the end of June, the Sheffield-borm midfielder may be in line for a permanent spot next season.
