Sheffield Wednesday gave another lacklustre account of themsleves on Saturday, during their 1-0 defeat at home to Ipswich Town.

The scoreline flattered Sheffield Wednesday. Ipswich Town could easily have ran out as 4-0, or 5-0 victors on the day, but for an impressive performance from Devis Vasquez in the Wednesday goal.

Xisco Munoz’s side failed to test the Ipswich Town goalkeeper though, with Munoz having to apologise to the fans after the game for his side’s poor performance.

The Owls are lacking any real bite or prowess in attack right now. The likes of Josh Windass and Michael Smith are thus far failing to give Wednesday any attacking intent, with Ashley Fletcher’s cameos doing likewise.

One player who could give Wednesday some much-needed energy in attack though is Djeidi Gassama. But the man signed from PSG this summer is barely playing.

The 20-year-old looked like a real coup when Wednesday brought him in. So far though, he’s played just 20 minutes of football under Munoz who’s left him out of the last three match day squads in the Championship.

He was spotted at the game on Saturday and there’s been no report of an injury, so it seems like he’s just not favoured at the moment.

Yes, he’s a very raw player, from what we’ve seen anyway, and he’ll need a lot of guidance going forward.

But he’s got good pedigree; he played for PSG’s youth sides for many years and has been tipped to go on and achieve big things. If he doesn’t get the exposure though, he’ll never develop as a player.

Right now, Wednesday have very little to lose. They have a crunch match coming up against Middlesbrough this week with both teams yet to win a game in the Championship; another defeat would surely put Munoz’s job into jeopardy.

Wednesday desperately need to do something. They need some kind of threat and Gassama, whilst he has a lot of room for improvement, could give Wednesday at least some threat going forward when they face Middlesbrough on Tuesday night.
