Jacob Murphy was handed his 12th start for Sheffield Wednesday at Wigan this afternoon. The 24-year-old scored his 4th goal of the season in the 32nd minute to put the Owls up 1-0. However, Wigan were able to snatch two second-half goals to get all three points.
BRILLIANT! The ball from Bannan to release Fox, then the ball in from the left back was inch-perfect for Murphy to head home!

Here is a clip of Murphy’s goal and it’s a wonderful header from the winger.

Watts played the entire game and was used in a defensive midfield role. The loss drops The Stags to 21st in League Two just 2 points above the relegation places.
