- Kieran Lee returned for Owls on Saturday
- Midfielder impressed in Yorkshire derby
- Lee comes through game unscathed
Kieran Lee returned to the Wednesday fold at the weekend against Leeds having missed the lion’s share of the season with a groin injury.
And the midfield man is just pleased to be back in the action after feeling frustration for much of the term to date.
He said: “It was great to be back out there, it’s what I have been aiming for. It’s been really frustrating but you can’t rush back because you could be out for even longer.
“I got through the whole game and there were no ill effects so I was pleased with that.
“I think a derby was the best kind of game to play because the pace of the game is so quick and you don’t get time to dwell.
“The adrenaline gets you through games like that anyway but when I came off, I felt absolutely fine.”
Like most players, Lee is not the best at watching from the sidelines given the desire to return to duty.
But from that vantage point, the 26-year-old has at least been able to assess the Owls’ early season form.
He said: “Of course, it’s been frustrating, no one wants to spend time in the treatment room, you just want to be out there on the pitch helping the lads.
“But I’ve seen all the games and you can see how far the team has come this season.
“We are picking up points, we are doing well and there’s no reason why we can’t continue where we left off after the international break.”
