‘Untouchable’: Some Watford fans reserve special praise for Owls ace Barry Bannan

Some Watford fans have taken to Twitter to praise Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan following the Hornet’s 1-0 win at Vicarage Road on Friday.

Watford took another step towards promotion after sealing all three points against the Owls.

An unfortunately own goal by Tom Lees was the difference between the sides.

But following the final whistle, several Watford fans praised Wednesday’s performance and singled out midfielder Barry Bannan as being the best player on the park.

Bannan is without doubt Wednesday’s most creative spark.

The midfielder tops the assist charts with four, while his average of 1.6 key passes per Championship encounter is twice as good as Wednesday next highest – Kadeem Harris with 0.8.

Bannan was Wednesday’s best player at Watford, taking 86 touches and playing two key passes while averaging an impressive 85.5% pass accuracy rate.

The Owls have managed to extend the former Aston Villa man’s contract beyond this season, but a relegation to League One could put his future at Hillsborough in jeopardy.

Darren Moore’s side remain six points adrift of Birmingham City and safety.
