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.
Odubajo looked out of depth all night, Iorfa at right back with Lees and Börner with fox at left back could work! #swfc

Eurgh. Derby completely toothless for 80 minutes and we still don't pick up 3pts.
Someone other than Fletcher has got to start contributing goals in this team.
Odubajo poor again, silly mistakes, erratic on the ball, erratic off it. Not a bad thing he's suspended now. #swfc

Threw that away. In the bag, Odubajo a liability again. Take the point but what could have been! #swfc

Great 1st half performance. Bang average in 2nd. Soft penalty. Odubajo absolute liability. Poor changes from Monk, far too long left in the game to try and shut up shop when he did. #SWFC

Never seen a more indecisive and clumsy player than Odubajo for a long time. I don’t think the ref gives that pen if it’s not him. Most of us were saying this before game too #swfc

2 points dropped against a poor team…Odubajo’s a liability wether it’s a penalty or not #swfc

Odubajo does nothing but give fouls away and get caught in possession 😤 #swfc

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.
