Exciting and all to play for

2 March 2016

All is to play for in the remaining 12 games of the campaign and with Wednesday challenging at the top end of the Sky Bet Championship, Tom Lees believes the run-in promises to be an exciting one.

Only once before has Lees experienced the feeling of promotion and it is one the stopper is keen to experience again in the future.

That came back in the 2010/11 campaign when the defender spent the season on loan with Bury, as the Shakers finished second in League Two.

Drawing on that stage in his career, Lees said: “It will be a lot different if we could gain promotion to the Premier League but the spirit that we had when I was playing at Bury and the spirit in the dressing room is quite similar to what we have here.

“The boys are really enjoying it, working hard for each other and giving each game everything they have. I think the run-in will be really exciting.

“I don’t think any team is going to go from now until the end of the season unbeaten, teams are going to drop points at times.

“When it comes to the last five/ten games, there are going to be lots of twists.”

Last time out, the Owls emerged from a tough fixture at Hull with a merited point and the key thing for Lees is that the tally keeps ticking over and Wednesday keep the pressure up on their rivals at the top.

“People will go through dips in form so there is a long way go yet,” he added. “We have to make sure that when we are not at our best we pick up a point as a minimum.”
