Sheffield Wednesday's Daniel Pudil (L) and Keiren Westwood
Sheffield Wednesday found themselves on the wrong end of a derby defeat today – as Leeds United picked up a 2-0 win at Hillsborough.
It was another poor result from Wednesday, following on from defeat against Burton Albion.
There were some very poor performances from the Owls in the fixture. Ross Wallace for instance was not himself in a wasteful display.
Sheffield Wednesday's Daniel Pudil waves to fans
But it was the full-backs who were mostly to blame, at least in the eyes of the Wednesday faithful that is.
Daniel Pudil found himself constantly torn to shreds by the pace of Hadi Sacko on the Leeds right-wing.
Sheffield Wednesday's Jack Hunt in action with Hull City's Andrew Robertson
The Czech Republic international could not contend with his pace and power in a truly worrying performance.
Whilst his performance was bad, Jack Hunt on the other side could not hold his head much higher.
He struggled to deal with the marauding Charlie Taylor from left-back and was poor when he found himself in positive attacking positions.
On Twitter the feeling was fairly unanimous from the Sheffield Wednesday support. The pair need stronger competition if they are to improve their lacklustre performances ...
Desperately need full backs. Hunt and Pudil not good enough #SWFC— Julley (@Swfc_Jack) August 20, 2016
#Swfc Jack Hunt is a liability I'm afraid - Pudil is inconsistent - our tactics rely on energetic wing backs who can cross - not happening— martynware (@martynware) August 20, 2016
Abdi best creative midfielder in league but we stick him out on left and then sub him off AGAIN. Pudil and Hunt catastrophic #swfc— Matt Bardill (@MattBardill91) August 20, 2016
Not one for slagging our own normally but pudil for that 1st goal deary me, he got done all game. No competition there, need a new LB #swfc— Mark Younger (@markyoungerswfc) August 20, 2016
Don't see why hunt is getting so much hate, pudil was just as bad if not even worse! #swfc— Dan (@DCro94) August 20, 2016
Not good enough reality check needed! Daniel Pudil and Jack Hunt they are horrific! Can't tackle won't tackle! #swfc— jamie roper (@jamieroper3) August 20, 2016
