Ben Osborn’s performance against Reading has seriously split opinions in the fanbase.

While some are calling for Jack Robinson to be selected ahead of the 24-year-old for the next league game, others backed the left-sided player to keep his place and build on his display against the Royals.

Fans on Twitter gave very different views on our no.11’s performance:

Osborn was named in the Whoscored.com Championship Team of the Week which prompted more debate:

There’s no doubting that Ben is a makeshift left-back. His strengths lie further up the pitch, and he was caught out on a number of occasions positionally on Saturday.

With all that being said though, we still came out with a clean sheet, and while there is a case to be made for bringing in Robinson, I think Aitor Karanka will keep faith with the player for the next league encounter versus Wigan.

It will be interesting to see how the Spaniard changes things up against Bury tomorrow though.
