Some Sheffield Wednesday fans on social media have been reacting to Neil Thompson’s injury update on Fisayo Dele-Bashiru.
Unfortunately, the Owls will be without Dele Bashiru for a number of weeks after Henrik Dalsgaard’s tackle against Brentford left him unable to complete Saturday’s game.
Indeed, Thompson confirmed that his scan had shown negative results and that he’d likely be out of action for up to six weeks.
This isn’t the biggest blow in the world for Wednesday as the youngster hasn’t been an instrumental first-team player, but it’s a blow nonetheless.
Understandably, Owls fans weren’t best pleased at hearing this news.
Some supporters were simply gutted that he would be out of action, while others took this as a chance to once again air their frustrations about the challenge on Saturday and the fact it wasn’t punished with a red card.
It’s fair to say Wednesday supporters weren’t happy with this update, and here’s what they’ve been saying on social media…
Get well soon Fizzy, gutted for you!

Was horrendous….he’s quite lucky he only rolled it. Could of snapped it. !! Players get away with tackles like that…… yet big Sam could blow on someone and get a yellow….

That challenge was abysmal and not punished

Shock… how he didn’t get a straight red card is beyond me. Didn’t even attempt to play the ball! I said at the time there’s a difference between cynical and dangerous play, that was 100% dangerous play! #swfc https://t.co/oKs0EWsEGE

@BrentfordFC The least you could do out of common courtesy was to make Henrik Dalsgaard contact Fizz and apologise – and, frankly, the @EFL ought to review the incident and issue a fine seeing as regulations prevent a retrospective suspension when a yellow card has been issued. https://t.co/s6zzZ328sl
