Wilder explained in detail why Sharp didn't make the bench for the day.
He said, "Rhian Brewster is the future of the football club. I usually have three forwards on the bench, but with John Egan having had concussion and John Fleck back from injury I needed to cover those positions.
"Had to go with Robinson, Lundstram and Osborn to cover positions. Unfortunate for the skipper, but as I said to him he now gets judged as a skipper than at any time. It's quite easy when you are playing and everything is going fine.
"Now he has to lead as captain. He's disappointed, I get that, but we needed to have pace on the bench in Burke in case we were leading and wanted to stretch the game and Rhian is the future, so I went with two on the bench instead of three."
