Liam Palmer and Sheffield in 2-0 loss

Liam Palmer, sponsored by MightyTips, was one of the better performers in a losing side as Sheffield Wednesday lost 2-0 to Coventry. Dimitrios Goutas’ side Cardiff shared points with Plymouth, Lewis Travis played his part in a 3-0 loss in which Jacob Chapman was an unused sub.

Coventry 2-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Despite a 2-0 loss, Liam Palmer performed at a good level. With 79 minutes on the pitch, he was taken off to rest. 71% accurate passes were recorded and five into the final third - creating a few chances for Sheffield which were unfortunately not taken well.

A double from Coventry’s central midfielder Sakamoto sealed Sheffield’s unfortunate outcome. Wednesday sits second last in the league table after a good streak of results saw them leapfrog Rotherham.

Cardiff 2-0 Plymouth Argyle

A bad day at the office for Goutas as his defense concedes a double. Despite a shaky defensive performance, Goutas managed to chip in with eight balls into the final third. 83% aerial duels won is also another statistic to note.

Plymouth’s savior Whittaker scored a brace to match an own goal from Butcher, and later a Karlan Grant strike. This draw sees Cardiff succumb to their shaky form, now sitting 11th in a very competitive league.

A whole half for playing time for Travis, he recorded 94% accurate passing and was accounted for actions both in defense and attack.

Blackburn were on the backfoot most of the match, with Headley opening the scoring before Thomas and Burgzorg strikes bagged Huddersfield all three points.
