Sheffield Wednesday's January signing from Wolverhampton Wanderers replaced Newcastle United's Achraf Lazaar on Tuesday, and impressed alongside Palmer.
Iorfa, who signed for Wednesday from Wolverhampton Wanderers on deadline day, replaced Achraf Lazaar 36 minutes into the Owls' 2-0 win against Brentford on Tuesday after the on-loan Newcastle United left-back was forced off with a hamstring problem.
But instead it was Palmer, the right-back who has been keeping Iorfa out of the Sheffield Wednesday starting 11, who switched on to the left.
And despite his unfamiliar surroundings, the Worksop native's performance did not drop as Wednesday proceeded to score both of their goals.
According to Steve Bruce, Lazaar, who was making only his second senior appearance of the season for Newcastle or the Owls, will miss his new club's next few fixtures, starting with Sheffield United.
But rather than bring back Morgan Fox, the left-back whose injury gave Lazaar his chance initially, the following Sheffield Wednesday fans want Bruce to stick with the pairing that ended Tuesday night.
If Lazaar isn't fit on Monday I'd play Palmer at LB and Iorfa at RB #swfc— Steve Turner (@Majortarantino) 26 February 2019
Yeah I'd go Palmer with iorfa on the right— ian chambers82 (@IChambers82) 27 February 2019
If Lazaar isn’t back i say we play Iorfa at RB & Palmer at LB he looks better in that position imo— Diving Duffy (@DivingDuffy21) 27 February 2019
Gutted. He’s made a huge difference the last 2 games. Palmer did well at LB though and should stay there ahead of Fox if Lazaaar ain’t fit. Iorfa needs to stay at RB. Very impressive again when he came on. #swfc— Matt Glossop (@Jinja_Owl) 27 February 2019
Liam Palmer at LB Monday night and Iorfa at RB and we’ll be sorted! #SWFC— Beth (@Bethany639) 26 February 2019
No way palmer LB Iorfa RB looked alright tonight— Matt (@_MLT92) 26 February 2019
Iorfa, who also played centre-back for Wolves, scored a stoppage-time equaliser on his Wednesday debut against Rotherham earlier this month.
The Owls' other January recruit, Rolando Aarons, who arrived with Lazaar from Newcastle, has also impressed since breaking into Bruce's side.
Should Sheffield Wednesday give the former Wolves man his first start for them against Sheffield United?
