Sheffield Wednesday didn’t set the place alight in Tuesday’s 0-0 draw with Huddersfield Town, but Moses Odubajo was one of a handful of players that came away with praise from supporters for his performance at Hillsborough. The 26-year-old started as a makeshift wing-back on the right and provided an attacking threat while also being busy defensively.

Who did Sheffield Wednesday sign Josh Windass on loan from?

Against Huddersfield, Odubajo played for 90 minutes, had 43 touches, completed 52.4% of his 21 passes, created one chance, had one shot which hit the target, made one clearance, whipped in three crosses, made two tackles, played five long balls, won one free-kick, made three dribbles and made one interception.

The 26-year-old has made 23 appearances in all competitions this season and has been a regular under Garry Monk since football returned in England. Odubajo featured only twice in the Championship between mid-December and mid-March, but he has played in six of Wednesday’s last seven games.

Odubajo had an uncertain future earlier in the season after being told he could leave in January, but the £720k-rated man is now an important part in the starting eleven and repaying his manager’s faith too. Wednesday next face Fulham on Saturday.
