- Lee Bullen full of praise for Caolan Lavery
- Striker scores fifth goal in five for Under-21s
- Watch the 22-year-old's goal below
Owls coach Lee Bullen was pleased with the performance of Caolan Lavery during the Under-21s’ clash with Nottingham Forest on Monday.
A knee injury during pre-season saw the striker miss the first four months of the campaign.
Lavery made his return from the bench back in November in the Owls’ 2-1 win over Wigan.
And as the 22-year-old steps up his progress back into the first team fold, Bullen was full of praise for the young Canadian, who scored his fifth goal in five for the Development Squad against Forest.
Following the 2-1 defeat, he said: “That performance was more like Caolan.
“He chased everything, harried the defenders and led by example.
“The goal he scored was a reward for his endeavours and he can take a lot of positives out of the game.
“It’s been a frustrating period for the young man but that’s more game-time under his belt and that can only bode well for everyone.
“He’s now playing catch-up, he wants to get back in the first team and fair play to him because he’s working hard.”
