Some fans have called for Sheffield Wednesday to sell Morgan Fox after the Owls lost to Cardiff City. Wednesday suffered consecutive defeats in the Championship for the first time since August and Fox was one of many players criticised for his performance.

Garry Monk’s men found themselves 2-0 down in eight minutes after two lapses in defending. None of the Wednesday backline came away with any credit from Sunday’s performance, with Dominic Iorfa making errors in both of Cardiff’s goals, but Fox didn’t crown himself in glory either and was called out.

The 26-year-old has been a regular at left-back this season, making 20 appearances in all competitions, but supporters want him replaced in the January transfer window. Adam Reach, Ash Baker, Moses Odubajo, Jordan Thorniley can play left-back, but none of the four players are natural options.

Wednesday next face Hull City on New Year’s Day and desperately need a result to ensure they don’t fall out of the playoff places. The Owls could line up a little differently to Sunday to end their losing run in the Championship.

How will Sheffield Wednesday fare against Hull City?

  • I will be the first to admit that after the loss at Stoke , in which i told my son in law 5 minutes from time that we would lose 3 – 2 that i wanted a mass clear out and Monk sacked , but patience is required , we are still in the play off places , but things must improve , the defence as a unit were asleep for the early goals , once behind against a physical side like the Warnock built Cardiff we were always going to struggle to break them down as they need not come out to attack while in front , add to this the fact that our only 2 proven goalscorers Fletcher and Forestieri were out , Rhodes , even taking his superb hat trick at Forest into account along with Winnall and Niuhu will never be prolific scorers at Hillsborough , the three attackers i have just mentioned need moving on in January and some young blood bringing in , Iorfa and Borner need to be first choice centre backs with Palmer and the improving Fox coached as to be awake at all times , January is the key to our season , time will tell if Monk has the same ability in the transfer dept as Steve Bruce
