Wednesday boss Tony Pulis said: "I haven’t seen it, but if that’s the case then that’s the case. "You're the first who's said that to me. "I’m sure with everybody on social media, and all the places that people look now, he’ll be up in flames now if he’s done that." Sports stars have been banned for this sort of behaviour before, with England rugby player Joe Marler suspended for 10 weeks after grabbing Alun Wyn Jones' privates during a Six Nations match against Wales earlier this year. It remains to be seen whether Fisher will face retrospective action from the Football Association. The Owls, meanwhile, left Lancashire empty handed in Pulis' first match in charge after a superb 48th minute strike from Tom Barkhuizen. Forward Josh Windass shown a straight red card in the 17th minute for a high tackle on Joe Rafferty. "I haven't seen it back yet but his foot was high," said Pulis. "We're not going to be able to appeal. I don't think we're going to be able to get away with it because they'll say it was dangerous play.
