A number of Sheffield Wednesday players can hold their heads high from the game last weekend against Aston Villa.
Heading to Villa Park for the Championship clash, Wednesday took a 2-1 victory with goals coming from Marco Matias and Steven Fletcher, but young left-back Matt Penney saw his own stock rise in the game given his individual performance and wasn’t just Owls fans who reacted positively to him on social media – there was also the claret and blue view and from the comments I’ve scanned, they were just as positive about his potential future in the game.
Taking to Twitter as he often does following the full-time whistles, Penney sent the following to fans.
Enjoyed that today, unbelievable result! Away fans… wow!!????????????

It’ll come as no surprise for me to say that the simple message from the 20-year-old went over extremely well within the fanbase.
One of the best players on that pitch today! Please sign a 5 year contract immediately!
