Sheffield Wednesday defender Morgan Fox seems no closer to winning over a section of the Owls fan base following his performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the EFL Cup in midweek than he was in pre-season.

The 24-year-old made the switch from Charlton Athletic for a reported £700,000 back in the January transfer window of 2017 and he now has a total of 44 appearances to our name, but he has only been called upon twice so far in the season of 2018/19.

His most recent outing came on Tuesday evening and with the visitors to Hillsborough booking their place in the third round draw, it’s fair to say he struggled on the night with their wide players given the talent.

He wasn’t the only one to struggle and he, Dave Jones and George Boyd came in for easy criticism by fans on social media as they gave their thoughts on the match.

It appears our entire left-hand side stood out for many for all the wrong reasons.

With Fox, in particular, coming in for similar criticism during the pre-season tie with Mansfield Town, at least this time around it feels incredibly harsh given he was up against Adama Traore and with little protection in front of him, he was always going to be onto a loser against a man who caused Manchester City problems recently.
