The best feeling

14 September 2016

Barry Bannan says there’s no better feeling in football than celebrating a last minute winner.

Wednesday incredibly battled back from two goals down to win 3-2 with Kieran Lee striking in the 96th minute.

Bannan played a major part in the Owls’ fightback against the Robins and scored his first goal of season from range to level the score on the night.

He told “Luckily enough they missed the penalty and we grew and grew into the game and deserved the win.

“I got the ball a lot of the time in the second half with no one around me, I felt like the opportunity was there and it felt right to have a shot.

“I caught it well and if you don’t shoot, you don’t score. It was a great moment for me, I love scoring goals and want to chip in whenever I can.”

Lee’s calm finish in stoppage time sparked dramatic celebrations at Hillsborough and Bannan continued:

“You can’t explain it. It’s the best feeling you can have in football. We had done so well to get back in the game at 2-2, I think it’s massive for us.

“The way the crowd, players and staff reacted - you could see it was a big moment.

“It was a great three points in the end.”
