Owls goalkeeper Keiren Westwood has had a fine maiden season at Hillsborough.

Having scooped three Player of the Month awards along with the SODA and Wise Old Owls Player of the Year gongs, the 30-year-old can reflect positively on 2014/15.

Add to that the equalling of a long-standing clean sheet club record (17) set in 1978/79 and there is plenty to build on for the future.

During Thursday’s pre-match press conference ahead of the Leeds clash, Westwood has praised the entire squad for their achievements this season and said:

“It’s not just down to one person, it’s down to a whole number of people and a whole host of reasons why we’ve kept each clean sheet.

“Clean sheets don’t just come from the goalkeeper, they come from everywhere.

“We’ve not had a settled backline in the second half of the season and have missed Loovens and Semedo big time and Palmer, who has had a fantastic season at right back.

“But everybody deserves a good mention because they have put in a real shift.”

Westwood was absent for the trip to Bournemouth last time out as a precaution with a calf injury but has trained today and is expected to feature against Leeds on Saturday.

He added: “I’m ready to go, I trained today and I’ll train tomorrow. It’s a big game and one I’m looking forward to.

“The gaffer is having no let-up, you read in the media about the flip flops coming on but nobody can throw that at us.

“We pushed Bournemouth all the way and thoroughly deserved the point. We have worked really hard as a team.”
