Sheffield Wednesday: Fans can’t understand why Fernando Forestieri isn’t playing - Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday fans were left questioning why Garry Monk has not been playing Fernando Forestieri on Twitter following their encounter with Championship leaders West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon.

The Owls were on the wrong end of a 2-1 result against the Baggies at The Hawthorns in what proved to be a rather eventful game on the pitch (BBC).

A penalty to each side was awarded, with both being converted, whilst the Hillsborough outfit saw themselves reduced to ten men in the final moments of the fixture when Liam Palmer was shown a straight red card.

Whilst the defeat put a dent in Sheffield Wednesday’s aspirations for promotion, many of the club’s faithful took to social media following the conclusion of the game to ask why Forestieri had not been selected or even been brought onto the field of play.

Indeed, the 29-year-old has been having a rather difficult campaign so far as he has been forced to watch on from the outside.

Of course, the Argentine-Italian was hit with a six-game ban at the beginning of the season, however since then, he has featured in just seven Championship matches for Monk, in which he has started just one game (per TransferMarkt).

Forestieri did manage to score a goal against Swansea City prior to the international break, although it does not appear to have given his manager any further desire to include him from the off.
