Was at no fault for the goal after being completely unsighted by the players in front of him, and made a number of strong saves to keep the score down - his stop from Harry Clarke was the pick of the bunch.
Conor Chaplin’s goal proved to be the difference at S6 as the Tractor Boys headed home with a narrow victory, but it could’ve been much more if it hadn’t been for Colombian goalkeeper, Devis Vasquez.
The shot-stopper was the best performer on a tough afternoon for the Owls that saw them fail to create a single decent opportunity, and the international break didn’t prove to be the catalyst that many had hoped it would.
Here are our ratings after another rough afternoon for Xisco’s Wednesday:
As tireless a performance as you’d expect from the Scot, who bust a gut on numerous occasions in order to try and make things happen. Sadly, though, to no avail. Playing on the right side of defence, and captain in the absence of Bannan, Palmer was steady for the most part and tried to get forward on occasion, too. Had a steady start to the game in Wednesday’s defence and helped keep the visitors at bay before his early substitution due to injury before the half-hour mark. The best performer in Wednesday’s defence on the day - looked good on the ball, timed his interventions well and won plenty of aerial duels, too. A bit of a hot and cold performance from the Chilean on his return from international duty, there were some nice parts to his play but he also couldn’t really make much of a mark going forward. Not a debut to remember for the new Wednesday signing, who didn’t have much of a say in matters at Hillsborough in his midfield role. You’d expect him to improve with time. Probably Wednesday’s best midfielder on another tough day at the office - got stuck in as you’d expect, and picked a couple of nice passes too. Another difficult afternoon for the Owls attacker, who put himself about all over the park in an attempt to make something happen, but didn’t have much joy. Delivered a couple of decent balls into the box but nobody got onto the end of them. Kept himself busy and chased plenty down, but battled to have a real impact on the game in what was a largely isolated attacking role. Really struggled to get into the game, and like Gregory couldn’t get on the ball much given how little the Owls were creating - had one header from a set piece go over. Not much more he could have done. Had a couple of good moments and also a couple of hairy ones in what was a mixed bag of a performance from the young centre back. Looked lively when he came on and tried to make things happen, but was unable to help turn things around in the second half. Similarly to Smith before him, Fletcher wasn’t able to impact the game at all during his time leading the line. Starved of service and barely had a touch. Came on for the final 15 minutes, replacing debutant Hendrick. Sheffield Wednesday faced Ipswich Town on Saturday afternoon.
