Sheffield Wednesday fans make bold claims about Bannan, admit concern about Hooper

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

Sheffield Wednesday drew 1-1 with Derby County on Saturday afternoon.

Sheffield Wednesday's play-off place is far from secure just yet after a 1-1 draw with Derby County at the iPro Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Owls took a 69th minute lead through a stunning strike from midfielder Barry Bannna, who curled a long-range shot in to the net via the crossbar.

Derby did rally though and claimed a point when Darren Bent headed home Johnny Russell's cross, leaving the two play-off chasing teams with a point apiece - but Cardiff's late win over Bolton means that Wednesday are just four points clear of the seventh-placed Bluebirds, with the two teams set to meet next week.

After the final whistle against Derby, Wednesday fans took to Twitter to talk about two players in particular - Bannan and striker Garry Hooper.

Bannan lit the game up with his stunning goal, and fans weren't shy when it came to praising the Scot, with supporters suggesting that few midfielders in the Championship are quite as good as the player Wednesday snapped up from Crystal Palace last summer.

However, fans weren't quite so enthusiastic about striker Hooper. Signed from Norwich City in January following a successful loan deal at Hillsborough, it's now just one goal in the last 13 games for the former Celtic hitman - and fans suggested he was well off the pace against Derby.

What did you think of Bannan and Hooper's performances against Derby?
