Sheffield Wednesday drew 1-1 with Birmingham City on Wednesday night and some fans have called on Garry Monk to make a change in attack against Charlton Athletic on Saturday, November 30.
How will Sheffield Wednesday fare against Charlton Athletic?
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.
Garry Monk cost us that game. Forestieri needs to start. If he wants to play one up top he plays him !!!!! Simple Forestieri needs to be first name on the team sheet play the team around him #swfc

If monk doesn’t start two up top and forrestieri on Saturday I’ll doubt him even more than I already do now! Shocking that #swfc

Monk's tactics are so dull and restrictive. Birmingham were there for the taking.
Surely after seeing the last 15 minutes, he can see that we need to play two strikers and make the most of Forestieri? #swfc

By the way, Monk was justly pleased with Forestieri’s impact from the bench having given him a prolonged opportunity. One player who can make the difference if he sustains that. Suspect he will have the chance on that showing. #SWFC

If Forestieri doesn’t start the next game it just confirms Garry Monks negativity. He transformed our play today but once again wasn’t on the pitch long enough. Reach is a guaranteed starter though 🤯🙃#swfc

You can tell that I don't know much about coaching because I honestly think we look much better with two up front, Forestieri buzzing around behind, and wingers playing on their strongest foot. #swfc

Just an opinion, but I think forestieri should start #swfc

Forestieri needs to be starting every game when fit. Best player at club by a mile #swfc

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.
