Sheffield Wednesday drew 1-1 with Derby County on Wednesday and Moses Odubajo was one of many players hammered for his overall performance.

The 26-year-old had an eventful evening at the iPro Stadium, giving away a penalty and being sent off in injury time, so it wasn’t a surprise that he was subject to criticism on social media.

Against the Rams, Odubajo played for 90 minutes, made 38 touches, won one aerial duel, created one chance, completed 62.5% of his 16 passes, whipped in one cross, made one interception, gave away three fouls, made one clearance, drew five fouls and picked up two yellow cards.

Wednesday will now be without the right-back against Nottingham Forest (December 14), however. Odubajo had made 14 appearances in all competitions prior to his sending off, but he’ll be sitting out over the weekend.

The Owls now currently sit eighth in the Championship with 33 points from 21 games, just one point adrift of the playoffs.

Whether Odubajo’s performance against Derby leads Garry Monk to drop him permanently remains to be seen. He initially came in for the previously-suspended Liam Palmer, but his form has been disappointing ever since. Monk could turn to Palmer or Dominic Iorfa to fill the right-back slot as a result.

Should Liam Palmer return to Sheffield Wednesday's starting XI after serving his suspension?
