A number of Sheffield Wednesday fans have been commenting on Twitter regarding their side's performance in the 1-1 draw at Cardiff and one Owls player who came under some criticism was Liam Palmer.

The 28-year-old defender was named at his favoured position of right-back for the first time since the QPR game at Hillsborough back in August but his display did not impress many fans as he looked somewhat lethargic and gave away several free kicks.

Wednesday came close to victory nonetheless as they led from the 19th minute, Julian Borner scoring his first goal for the Owls when he connected with Kadeem Harris' shot and flicked the ball beyond Neil Etheridge.

 

However, the Owls relinquished their lead late on as Lee Tomlin came off the bench to win a contentious free kick, after he appeared to foul Massimo Luongo, which he rifled around the wall and into the back of the net.

The Owls felt that Cardiff teammate Aden Flint was lurking in an offside position - and interfering with their keeper's view - as the dead ball was struck, but the officials were not interested and in the end the spoils were shared.

Here is some of the Wednesday fans' reaction to the display from Garry Monk's side, with focus on the £675,000-valued (Transfermarkt) defender's performance:

Victory by a two-goal margin would have sent Wednesday top of the Championship table, but instead the draw sees Monk's charges move up to sixth in the standings.
