- Tom Lees proud of positive start
- Six clean sheets in nine games for Wednesday
- Owls face Reading at Hillsborough on Saturday
Tom Lees has said the Owls can be proud of their start to the campaign on all fronts but the defender will not be getting carried away.
Defensively, Wednesday have one of the meanest records in the Championship having kept six clean sheets from nine in all competitions.
Lees, who has been an ever-present, believes the clean sheets have been down to the whole team and not just the back four and goalkeeper.
The ex-Leeds man said: “A clean sheet is a good foundation to build from in any game, especially when you have the strikers that we have who can punish teams.
“The one against Birmingham was probably our most hard fought clean sheet of the season.
“It’s credit to everyone really, you can’t say it’s just the back four and the goalkeeper, it’s down to everyone.
“It’s also down to the attitude we have. Each time we go out, we’re determined first and foremost to keep a clean sheet.”
Wednesday face a stern test this weekend against a Reading side that have won four games on the bounce.
Both sides are riding high in the early throes of the season with just a point separating the two.
And with tickets at just £10 and £5, the Owls are expecting their biggest attendance of the season.
Lees continued: “We can’t get carried away with it, we’ve done well so far but we’ve got some tough games coming up.
“If we can pick up a few more clean sheets and results this month, then we’ll be over the moon.”
