Sheffield Wednesday fans react on Twitter to Michael Turner performance

The Owls fans were not impressed with the centre-back.

Sheffield Wednesday’s excellent form came to a crushing halt yesterday as The Owls were put to the sword at Bristol City.

The home side are battling relegation and Sheffield Wednesday are in the hunt for promotion, however today it would have been easy to confuse matters opposite.

An own goal from Liam Palmer and goals from Bobby Reid, Lee Tomlin and Jonathan Kodjia saw Bristol 4-0 up after 52 minutes. An own goal from Richard O’Donnell proved nothing but a consolation for Wednesday.

Sheffield Wednesday came into the game on the back of four consecutive wins. But it was squad rotation that had Sheffield Wednesday fans livid on social media.

One player who came in was centre-back Michael Turner.

The 32-year-old is behind the likes of Tom Lees, Glen Loovens and Vincent Sasso in the pecking order at Wednesday and the Owls fans like it that way.

But Carlos Carvalhal likes to rotate the squad and Turner came on for his first Championship start since the defeat to Rotherham United at the start of last month.

In fact, Turner has only played in three wins from his 10 appearances in the Championship this season.

Wednesday fans were clear on Twitter, they would not like to see him start again…
