Hard work pays off

20 March 2016

Tom Lees says his goal against Charlton on Saturday was a product of hard work on the training pitch.

In the build-up to the clash with the Addicks, Lees says the Owls worked on ways in which they could make the all-important breakthrough.

It was particularly pleasing for the defender on a personal note, as Lees was the man on the spot to plant a firm header into the Kop net for the crucial first goal.

Now on three goals for the campaign, he said: “Goals are something I am trying to add to my game all the time.

“The manager has been saying to me all week he wanted me to get a goal, we worked on a few things at the back end of the week and luckily it paid off so I’m really happy.

“Charlton were very deep, there wasn’t much space to get in behind and explore and it made it difficult for us.

“But the timing of the goal was good because it forced Charlton to come out and when they attempted to bring men forward we could pick them off.

“At half time, we knew we needed to up it and I think we did that.”
