Sheffield Wednesday lost 1-0 at Stoke City in the Championship tonight, owing to a late goal from Steven Fletcher.
Sheffield Wednesday endured a cold midweek trip to Stoke City tonight. But they held their own in the first-half despite a bland display of football from both, but Stoke City would steal the win late on.
Going into the game, Wednesday fans would’ve been cautious of Fletcher coming back to haunt them – and he did just that. He scored in the 83rd minute to seal the victory.
Caretaker manager Neil Thompson has proved a shrewd appointment so far. His side conceded a late goal in typical fashion tonight but for the most part, they defended well.
One defender who stood out as having a particularly impressive game tonight was Osaze Urhoghide.
The 20-year-old joined Sheffield Wednesday ahead of last season and made his fifth Championship appearance of the season tonight.

Urhoghide has been an absolute rock in this first half. Dunkley and Lees are very solid as well. A little bit more composure and sharpness in the attacking third, and we can win this easily.
COME ON WEDNESDAY! #swfc
