‘Not your fault’: Some Owls fans react to Isaiah Brown's apology for Rotherham debacle

Some Sheffield Wednesday supporters have reacted on Twitter to Isaiah Brown’s apology following the 2-1 defeat at home to Rotherham United.

The Owls headed into the Yorkshire derby with aspirations of picking up all three points.

New Owls boss Darren Moore sensed victory, and both Jack Marriott and Jordan Rhodes entered the field as the hosts pushed for all three points against a weary looking Rotherham.

But with less than a minute left on the clock, Brown failed to beat the first man from a corner and Rotherham broke down the other end with Freddie Ladapo scoring a stunning 25-yard winner.

Brown apologised on social media after the game with some supporters reacting to his tweet.

Brown has struggled to get going at Hillsborough following his loan move last summer.

The 24-year-old attacker has made 18 Championship appearances but only four starts, posting just one assist in the opening day 2-0 win at Cardiff City.

Brown isn’t the only Owls player who has underachieved this season. Going forward, the team has struggled for creativity and goals despite a number of attacking options.

The defeat to Rotherham leaves Wednesday seven points adrift of safety.

It will now take some turn of events for the Owls to preserve their Championship status.
