Fans call for Luhukay to be sacked

Sections of the Wednesday travelling support called for Jos Luhukay to be sacked after we slumped to a 4-2 defeat at Blackburn on Saturday.

It takes our recent run to just one win and four points from eight games and, whilst we remain in 16th place and five points off the relegation zone, Wednesday were once again outplayed and outfought for almost the entire 90 minutes against moderate opposition.

Any hope of a fast start after the midweek win over Bolton, disappeared almost from the kick off with Blackburn having a goal disallowed before Danny Graham fired them ahead on 10 minutes after Cameron Dawson had pushed away an effort from Bradley Dack.

We failed to trouble the home defence in the first half and it got worse on 53 minutes when a sweeping Blackburn move ended with Graham crossing for Dack to make it 2-0.

With the first ‘Jos Out’ chants coming from the away end, we got back into the game just after the hour, Lucas Joao firing home a tremendous 30-yarder into the roof of the net.

However, hopes of a revival were dampened within five minutes and it was the Dack-Graham partnership causing more problems, the defence stood off Dack and when his shot came back off the post Graham reacted quickest to score from the rebound.

Even then, we gave ourselves a glimmer of hope again five minutes from time, Barry Bannan jinking his way through inside the penalty box and when his clip past keeper David Raya hit an upright, the home keeper could only knock the loose ball over the line to make it 3-2.

But, once again it was a false dawn, Graham completing his hat-trick a minute from time to round off another sorry day for the Owls and sparking more calls for Luhukay to leave the club.

Dawson, Palmer, Lees, Hector, Thorniley, Pelupessy, Bannan, Reach, Matias (Forestieri 46 (Onomah 90), Joao, Fletcher (Nuhiu 46).
