Wednesday could only pick up a 1-1 draw against the Clarets last night, but Nuhiu’s display has earned him a late of credit.
The target man often bears the brunt of supporters’ criticism, due to his lack of mobility while playing up front.
However, many Wednesday supporters have described his performance last night as ‘unmarkable’, as he used his strength to good impact.
Nuhiu’s powerful performance caused the Burnley defence no end of problems, and he helped Wednesday turn the match around.
The Owls fell behind early on when Andre Gray tapped in from close range for Burnley, but Kieran Lee levelled the scores in the second half - with Nuhiu playing a big part in the goal.
The Austrian international nodded the ball into Lee’s path, and the midfielder made no mistake with the finish.
Here is the best reaction from Wednesday fans on social media site Twitter to Nuhiu’s performance.
Our performance last night summed up by Atdhe Nuhiu. Woeful for 30 minutes, unmarkable for most of 2nd half. Tremendous contribution #swfc— Rick Crawley (@RickCrawley) February 3, 2016
The Nuhiu bashers have turned to attendance bashers #swfc— Wincobank Owl (@stevenowls) February 3, 2016

Big praise for Nuhiu last night.A constant nuisance for Burnley.Surprised when he got subbed.#swfc— Wendal (@waynethowl) February 3, 2016
Hear Nuhiu played well again and assisted yet another goal last night. Yes, missed some chances but if he was prolific, he'd be in PL. #swfc— Andy Parsons (@andypars) February 3, 2016
Very good game of football between 2 very good sides tonight. I've slated him but have to say Nuhiu played very well. Great point. #swfc— Claire Peart (@DonnyOwlClaire) February 2, 2016
