Some Sheffield Wednesday fans have been left to slam the decision-making of Cameron Dawson for a piece of action against Millwall recently.
The Owls were held to a goalless draw by the London-based side at the weekend. The game saw Garry Monk’s men register 15 shots, while Millwall had seven attempts on goal for themselves. The result meant that Wednesday have only won a single game out of their last seven Championship fixtures.
Do you think Dawson should leave Wednesday?
Yes, he's not good enough
Keep him as back-up
One moment from the game went viral on social media recently. A Wednesday supporter posted a passage of play from the match on Twitter and many Wednesday fans made it clear that Dawson is error-prone and he needs to do better.
It’s just Dawson’s kicking for me it’s awful

Because he can’t kick a ball properly…doesn’t matter it’s not his job or owt…

Dawson distribution is terrible. Westwood is still the best keeper

Absolutely incredible. Odubajo isn’t out of position. He’s giving Cam the angle to play it short. I cannot believe some people.

90% Dawson poor decision.
10% zero challenge in midfield.
0% Moses fault and I think he’s poor but this is absolutely nothing to do with him.

Yep shocking kick by Dawson under very little pressure. Has the chance to play it back to Odubajo in a good position to bring the ball forward. But fans will blame Odubajo for it. New scapegoat.

24-year-old Dawson has made a total of 21 appearances in all competitions this season. In the Championship, he has made 17 appearances for the side. During this time, he has kept seven clean sheets while letting in 18 goals for Monk’s men.
What do we think?
Stats show that Dawson’s passing does need to improve. His passing accuracy stands at a poor 44% even when he plays an average of 30.6 passes per game. Wednesday fans are right to point out this weakness in his approach to the game.
