All about the group

22 April 2017

The spirit, determination and togetherness in the group helped Wednesday over the line as they came from behind to beat Derby 2-1, according to assistant manager Lee Bullen.

After Darren Bent gave the visitors the lead the Owls hit back through Steven Fletcher and Gary Hooper to take the points.

And Bullen heaped praise on the collective as Wednesday closed in on a play-off finish with two games to go.

He said: “This group of players is fantastic. They push each other so hard in training every day and get the best out of each other.

“When it comes to the match day they are desperate to win and ready to go.

“To win five games in a row in any division is an achievement but in the Championship, it’s exceptional.

“We’ve seen today what they’re all about. They’ve dug in when we went a goal behind and come back with two great goals of our own.”

There were candidates aplenty for man of the match but Bullen repeated the mantra of focusing on the squad as a whole.

He added: “We can talk about individual performances all day because there were some outstanding displays today.

“All the way through and even in the last minute, we saw some moments that change games.

“And credit to them because this is such a hard division and that win came from the belief this group has.

“But are we there yet? Absolutely not, there are two games to go and until is mathematically impossible to be caught in the top six, of course we are not there.

“We have a huge game next week down at Ipswich and we will be 100% focused and absolutely prepared as always, don’t worry about that.”
