Mikel’s Stoke City Held To Goalless Draw At Sheffield Wednesday

The impact of the former Nigerian captain was not enough to give the Potters maximum points in Sheffield

John Obi Mikel was in action when Stoke City settled for a goalless draw against Sheffield Wednesday in Saturday’s championship match.

The former Chelsea and Nigeria midfielder has started every Potter league game this season and made his 14th appearance at Hillsborough.

Mikel saw 76 minutes of action on Saturday before being replaced by Jordan Cousins ​​as Michael O’Neill’s men chased after a goal – it was the first time the 33-year-old was eliminated in a match this season. Odubajo was involved in the match and came on as a substitute in the 83rd minute for Sheffield Wednesday. Nigerian youth star Tom Dele-Bashiru and Elias Kachunga of the Democratic Republic of Congo were also part of Tony Pulis’ team of the day, but watched from the bench.

19-year-old Cameroonian goalkeeper Blondy Noukeu was an unused substitute for Stoke City as he awaits his Championship debut.

The single point at Hillsborough left the Potters in eighth place in the championship standings with 22 points from 14 starts, while Sheffield Wednesday languishes in the drop zone with just eight points.

Next up for Mikel’s Stoke City is a trip to Wycombe Wanderers on December 2 before hosting Middlesbrough at the bet365 Stadium next Saturday.
