‘Sold down the river’ ‘Forgettable night’ - Player ratings as Sheffield Wednesday collapse at Plymouth Argyle
The Owls haven’t won away at Plymouth since 2009, but a first half display showed signs of promise at Home Park as Danny Röhl’s side took it to the hosts and were the better of the two sides for sustained periods.
But they contrived to find themselves 2-0 down after a nightmarish end to the first stanza, Mustapha Bundu rifling home a freekick before Pol Valentin’s mistake let Morgan Whittaker double their lead.
The second half saw Plymouth take control, and another Owls error in midfield led to Ryan Hardie making it three, and now the rock bottom Owls find themselves 11 points adrift of safety - it’s not even November yet.
Here’s how we rated the players on a torrid, wet night in Devon:
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are an “impatient” couple who “ran hot” while negotiating their exit from the Royal family, biographer Omid Scobie has said as he attempts to distance himself from the label of “Meg’s pal”.
How charming of Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to tweet of his “enormous joy and relief” that nine-year-old Irish-Israeli girl Emily Hand has been reunited with her family. “An innocent child who was lost has now been found and returned, and we breathe a massive sigh of relief. Our prayers have been answered.”
