Bullen satisfied with Owls performance

29 September 2014

Lee Bullen was pleased on the whole following the Under-21s’ win on Sunday, but disappointed the Owls did not emerge with a clean sheet.

Wednesday beat Bristol City 3-1 in a game they dominated, with goals from Ryan Meadows, Paul Corry and Rhys McCabe.

Lewis Hall scored a late consolation for the Robins.

Bullen said: “The lads went about their business correctly. I thought we were the stronger team but I was frustrated in the first half because we could have really pushed on and raised the tempo and maybe got another couple of goals.

"I told them to take less touches at half time and to move the ball quicker. We got to three and put the brakes on and it was frustrating to concede a goal.

"I wanted the back four to get a clean sheet. I was disappointed for Joe Wildsmith because he had virtually nothing to do all game but ultimately it's a good victory and we move on.”

As well as the general performance, Bullen took the positives from giving valuable game time to the more senior pros.

Academy graduate Simon Hanna was also in the team.

Bullen added: "The overall team performance was very steady. We got the basics right.

“It was good to get Simon Hanna back out on the pitch and good to get 90 minutes out of Paul Corry and Rhys McCabe.

“It was great that Claude Dielna got some minutes under his belt too.”
