It would have been a long summer!

15 April 2015

Tom Lees has revealed his delight following the 1-0 win over Brentford, as Wednesday equalled a club record of clean sheets.

The Owls overcame the Bees under the floodlights at Hillsborough and posted their 17th league shut out of the term.

The record was equalled at the seventh attempt after the 1-0 win over Blackpool at Bloomfield Road in early March.

Lees, who has played a crucial role at the heart of the Owls’ backline, said: “It would have been a long summer had we not got that clean sheet to equal the club record.

“It would have been so frustrating because we’ve had so many games to get that one clean sheet.”

With three games remaining, naturally, the defender is aiming to go one better.

He added: “Now it would be nice to set a new record. That is our target so we’ll have to see how it goes.

“The boys who have come in to the back four have done well.

“Our problem recently has been that we haven’t taken our chances, kept clean sheets and seen out games but we did all that against Brentford.”
