We deserved the win

27 November 2016

For Kieran Lee, three points in the bag and his fourth goal of the campaign made for an extremely pleasing afternoon in the West Midlands.

The Owls were deserved winners after a terrific performance at Molineux, defeating Wolves 2-0.

Fernando Forestieri set the ball rolling by converting his 15th minute penalty, before Lee applied a crisp finish after a heavy spell of pressure from the visitors on the half hour mark.

“We were delighted to get the goals early and we had a couple more chances after that,” Lee said.

“You can’t score every chance that you have but we’ll take the two goals, take the points and go on to build on that hopefully.

“We knew they would fly out of the traps, they kept their energy levels high, it was a tough game but we deserved to win.

“I think as a team we worked really hard. Obviously with them having a new manager and a big crowd, they wanted to impress, they pressed us well and made it difficult.

“But we battled hard, we got the two goals in the first half and it kind of set the tone for us and how we would play and we saw it through. We defended well and are happy with the points.”

Lee’s first half strike from Lucas Joao’s cutback was the midfielder’s first goal since Wednesday’s 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest at Hillsborough on 24 September.

He continued: “I was due one I think, it’s been a few weeks so obviously I’m delighted with that but the win was the most important.”
