Buzzing for the boys!

7 February 2016


Tom Lees has spoken of his delight in the S6 camp following the dramatic win over Birmingham on Saturday.


Trailing 1-0 late in the game, Wednesday turned the St Andrew’s contest on its head through a quickfire Gary Hooper brace to seal victory.

And Lees – returning to duty following a nine-week spell on the sidelines – summed up the feeling in the dressing room post-match.

He told swfc.co.uk: “I think that performance summed up the form of the last few weeks and the character we have in the squad.

“There were great scenes at the end because Birmingham is a difficult place to come to and get a result but we got the win and we are now firmly in the play-offs.

“I’m absolutely buzzing for the boys.”



Typically magnanimous, Lees steered the spotlight away from himself when probed after posting a valuable 90 minutes in the Midlands.

The defender, skipper for the day, made his first appearance since sustaining a hamstring injury in the Capital One Cup clash at Stoke on the first day of December.

He explained: “I don’t want to concentrate on me because it was such a fantastic result.

“All I will say is that it’s been a long nine weeks and I’ve worked as hard as possible with the phyios to get back as soon as I can.

“It was mixed emotions for me because of the goal but these things happen.

“The most important thing was the team performance and the result and we got both.”
