‘Job well done’ for Sheffield Wednesday man after rare start in Plymouth Argyle win

Sheffield Wednesday made it five wins in six games with a 1-0 victory over an out-of-form Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday night.

Sheffield Wednesday continued their impressive fight for Championship survival with yet another win last night. They defeated Plymouth Argyle 1-0 at Hillsborough, making it four wins in a row and five in their last six games.

Djeidii Gassama scored the decisive goal on the hour-mark, turning home an Ike Ugbo cross to secure the three points. Despite the impressive run, the form of those around them means the Owls are still 23rd in the Championship table.

However, Danny Rohl’s side are level on 38 points with the three teams directly above them and only two points separate them and last night’s opponents Plymouth, who are up in 16th.

There were strong displays across the board from Sheffield Wednesday, with defender Dominic Iorfa among those to put in a good performance at the back. It marked his first start of 2024 after substitute appearances in the last two games and his efforts earned praise from The Star reporter Alex Miller.

He scored Iorfa’s display an 8/10, writing this:

“Making his first start in 94 days, Iorfa offered legs and progression up the pitch. He mucked in defensively, too, making a number of important interventions. One second half slip-up in possession went unpunished. Off with 15 to go. Job well done.”

Who is this?

Back in the team

Iorfa had found a place in Danny Rohl’s starting XI before injury cast him to the sidelines in December. Now that he’s fit again, the former Wolves man will be keen to lock down that spot in the team once more, and his Tuesday night efforts should help things.

He helped Sheffield Wednesday keep a third clean sheet in four games and, as highlighted by Miller, wasn’t afraid to carry the ball forward and venture up the pitch on occasions either. It was that eagerness to move forward that saw him notch an assist off the pitch against Rotherham United at the weekend too.

Time will tell if Iorfa can hold onto his starting spot with Akin Famewo sure to be keen on getting his starting spot back. However, Iorfa has shown he can be a reliable presence at the back as the Owls look to climb out of the relegation zone and retain their Championship status.
