- Paul Corry praises Caolan Lavery
- Midfield man influential as Owls defeat Chesterfield
- Mani Dieseruvwe also on target for Wednesday
Paul Corry was a key figure in the engine room as the Owls’ Development Squad defeated Chesterfield 4-1 on Tuesday.
The Irishman turned in an accomplished display in central midfield but was quick to praise his team mate and close friend Caolan Lavery after the game.
Lavery has fought back from injury in pre-season and scored twice yesterday as the Under-21s impressed at Middlewood Road.
“I’m delighted Caolan got his two goals,” said Corry.
“He gives us something different. He stretches teams by running in behind and causes defenders problems.
“He was maybe a bit rusty against Middlesbrough but you could see from his two goals he is slowly but surely getting there.
“Caolan is like a new signing for us. When there are more people available for selection, there is more competition for places and that pushes everyone along a bit.
“I’m good friends with Caolan; he got a good pre-season under his belt and it looked like he was ready to kick on and it was just unfortunate he got the injury.
"But these things happen in football and you have to roll with the punches.”
Two goals from Lavery and a double from Mani Dieservuwe settled the midweek clash with Chesterfield and Corry continued:
“We played really well for 85% of the game.
“There were a few times where we gave the ball away but that happens with young players.
“When we moved the ball quickly, we looked a good side.
“There were some really good moves. I thought Jack Stobbs came on and did really well. He gave Caolan and Mani some good service.”
