Sheffield Wednesday suffered late heartbreak against West Brom on Saturday, with the Baggies scoring an 88th minute winner at the Hawthorns (BBC Sport).
After going behind early on, the Owls had dragged themselves level thanks to a Steven Fletcher penalty, but West Brom netted a penalty of their own in the dying embers through Charlie Austin.
Wednesday goalkeeper Keiren Westwood gave away the spot kick and his performance has come in for criticism from several supporters.
The Republic of Ireland international is enduring a tough period at the moment and this isn’t the first error that he has made which has led to a goal.
Indeed, against Swansea City prior to the international break he was partially responsible for both goals conceded as he flapped at two corners.
Quite a few Owls fans are becoming fed up of Westwood costing the team points and are calling for him to be dropped from the team in favour of Cameron Dawson.
Here is what some have been saying about their goalkeeper on Twitter…
#swfc how long do we keep playing Westwood when he’s starting to cost us more and more goals. Never thought I’d say it but Dawson is the better keeper now, Westy is past it

@swfc bossed WBA for much of the game, created loads of chances & should have had 2 goals before we went 1 down. Fought back well and disappointed 3rd match on trot we concede late on.
Westwood is no longer the best keeper we have, time for Dawson to step up.

Can we drop Westwood for a bit. See how we do. #swfc

Same old once again. Now is the time to drop Westwood – last 3 games he has cost us. #swfc

#swfc 2/2 made the great save not long after pen decision … by narrowing the angle which is what he’s normally so good at. Sorry Westwood but you’ve cost us the points today. But not only that conceded far to many pens by charging. He needs dropping, Dawson would be crucified

Westwood straight down the tunnel at the end doesn’t even clap the away fans, Bannan telling him to come over. Quicker Westwood is out the 11 and out the club the better. Trouble making behind the scenes #swfc
