Fernando Forestieri was a second-half substitute for Kieran Lee and impressed from the bench, creating numerous opportunities for his teammates and having chances for himself. His performance has led to supporters demanding he starts against the Addicks next weekend.

Against Birmingham, Forestieri played for 35 minutes, made 44 touches, won one aerial duel, had three shots, created five chances, completed 95.8% of his 24 passes, whipped in four crosses with 50% accuracy, made two successful dribbles, drew three fouls and made one interception.

The 29-year-old has made nine appearances in all competitions this season, scoring and creating two goals. He’d featured only three times in the Championship between August and mid-October but has played in five of the seven league games that followed.

With Wednesday enduring a five-game run without a win, scoring just one or less goals in eight of their last nine, Monk could consider giving Forestieri a chance to inject goals into the side.
