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 “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.”
