Loved every minute

22 March 2015

Having tucked home a dramatic winner in Saturday’s South Yorkshire derby, Kieran Lee has said he loved every minute of the celebrations that followed.

The midfielder’s goal deep, deep into added time at The New York Stadium sparked scenes of sheer joy amongst the players, staff and supporters.

Having gone into stoppage time 2-1 down, coming home with a point seemed unlikely but Wednesday turned the game on its head with goals from Atdhe Nuhiu (93) and Lee (98).

Lee said: “It fell nicely for me. Stevie May played me through and my main thought was to hit the target and luckily it went in.

“The scenes after were crazy but I loved every minute.”

Caolan Lavery equalised for the Owls late in the game, only for Rotherham to march straight up the other end and regain their lead.

Lee has praised the character the Owls showed to bounce back against the odds.

The midfielder added: “It was a kick in the teeth, their second goal, but we showed our character, we believed we could keep going and we did.

“You could see what it meant to me, the fans and staff after the goal so I think that ranks as my most important goal.

“Rotherham are battling for their lives in the championship but we wanted the win just as much. We know how important these games are.

“We left it late but that makes for a better game!”
