A number of Sheffield Wednesday players came in for criticism after Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Reading, but some supporters singled out Dominic Iorfa for his countless errors over the 90 minutes.

The 24-year-old was caught out by a through ball to Yakou Meita for Reading’s opening goal and gave away a penalty late in the game that was converted. He’s not been in the best form for some time and fans have lost their patience.

Against Reading, Iorfa played for 90 minutes, made 58 touches, won four aerial duels, created one chance, completed 71.7% of his 46 passes, found a teammate with four of his 10 passes, made two tackles, gave away three fouls, made two interceptions, drew one foul and made one clearances.

The 24-year-old has made 32 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring and creating three goals. Iorfa has been a regular under Garry Monk, playing alongside Julian Borner and Tom Lees at times, but he may find his place at risk unless he can improve.

Wednesday have conceded 12 goals in their last six games and have only picked up five points since Boxing Day. They next face Birmingham City on Saturday.
