Sheffield Wednesday: Fans slate Keiren Westwood’s performance against Swansea City

Sheffield Wednesday were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw against Swansea City at Hillsborough on Saturday (via BBC Sport).

After fighting back from 1-0 down, the Owls thought they had won it after goals from Fernando Forestieri in the 81st minute and Morgan Fox in the 91st minute.

Does Monk need to turn to Jordan Rhodes?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, the Swans managed to claim a share of the spoils with a dramatic 94th-minute equaliser from Ben Wilmot.

It was a huge blow for Garry Monk’s side to concede after thinking they had netted the winner, and many fans pointed the finger of blame towards Keiren Westwood.

The Republic of Ireland goalkeeper endured a poor afternoon at Hillsborough and was at fault for both of Swansea’s goals.

For Andre Ayew’s opener, he flapped at a corner and dropped the ball, which ultimately fell to the Ghanaian who finished (YouTube).

He then misjudged another corner in the dying minutes, trying to punch the ball clear only for it to fly over his head towards Wilmot who tapped home (YouTube).

As a result of his two mistakes, quite a few Sheffield Wednesday fans have been criticising his display on social media. Here is what some had to say about the goalkeeper’s display on Twitter…
