Sheffield Wednesday: Joe Crann criticises Sam Hutchinson’s mistake

Sheffield Wednesday: Joe Crann criticises Sam Hutchinson’s mistake -Sheffield Wednesday News

Sheffield Star journalist Joe Crann criticised Sam Hutchinson’s error in Sheffield Wednesday‘s 1-0 defeat away to Sunderland in their League One semi-final first leg clash.

The Lowdown: Owls beaten at Sunderland

The Owls took on the Black Cats at the Stadium of Light on Friday evening, in what was their biggest game of the season to date.

Wednesday fell behind through Ross Stewart’s goal just before half-time, following Hutchinson’s mistake in his own half, as he allowed the striker to nick the ball off him and score.

Darren Moore’s side failed to find an equaliser in the second half, in what was a hugely disappointing performance overall by the team.

Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?

Yes, of course!

No, not good enough!

The Latest: Crann critical of Hutchinson

Taking to Twitter during the game, Crann made his feelings known about Hutchinson’s key moment, in what he also described as a ‘huge mistake’ and particularly infuriating due to his good display up to that point:

“So frustrating, that… Sam Hutchinson had been SWFC’s best player on the pitch up until that mistake.”

The Verdict: Bad moment for dependable figure

Hutchinson has been such a dependable figure over the years, putting his experience and quality to good use, but this was a night to forget for him.

His error was so uncharacteristic, with the 32-year-old dawdling in possession, and he eventually lost four out of six individual duels (66%) when all was said and done, according to Sofascore.

Hutchinson is a mentally strong figure who won’t let the mistake affect him, however, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him produce a big performance in the second leg at Hillsborough on Monday night.

In other news, Wednesday have reportedly opened talks with one player over a deal. Read more here.
