Sheffield Wednesday player ratings v Huddersfield - New signing struggles, Westwood stars

Sheffield Wednesday

We rate Sheffield Wednesday's player performances during their 0-0 draw with Huddersfield Town in Saturday's early kick-off.

Keiren Westwood - 8/10

A couple of brilliant stops thwarted the Huddersfield Town attack late on to preserve Sheffield Wednesday's clean sheet. His reputation as the best goalkeeper in the Championship looks fully merited. 

Liam Palmer - 6/10

A solid performance, if an unspectacular one. Palmer did well with whatever Huddersfield threw at him. 

Tom Lees - 7/10

Commanding from the former Leeds United man. One block in the first half was particularly memorable. He has been a fine bit of summer business from Stuart Gray. 

Glenn Loovens - 6/10

Nearly made a costly error late on but got away with it thanks to Westwood's ability. Otherwise, a secure display. 

Jeremy Helan - 7/10

His work rate was admirable, as he provided a threat going forward and was very solid defensively. 

Royston Drenthe - 6/10

A typical Drenthe performance. Sometimes looked their biggest threat and at others frustrated. Missed a big chance at the end. 

Jose Semedo - 6/10

Offered decent protection for the back four but never really made a noticeable impression on the game. 

Lewis McGugan - 5/10

Perhaps played too deep by Gray, the loan signing wasn't able to influence the game as much as he would have been hoping. Looks like he will need games before getting up to speed. 

Jacques Maghoma - 6/10

Not as direct as Drenthe on the other side but his passing range was on full display and he posed a threat throughout. 

Gary Taylor Fletcher - 5/10

Didn't offer much in an attacking sense. The game rather passed him by. 

Stevie May - 6/10

On another day, May could have had a hat-trick. Looks like he will score goals if given service and was particularly unlucky not to hit the back of the net when his shot came off the bar and post in the closing stages.
