Bullen pleased with Owls response

26 December 2017

Lee Bullen is looking no further than the next game having been placed in temporary charge of the Owls.

Bullen oversaw an impressive 3-0 win at Nottingham Forest as Wednesday ended a six-game winless run in the Midlands.

The Scot has confirmed he will be in the dugout for Saturday’s trip to Brentford but is in the dark what the future holds.

He said: “I’m taking everything one day and one game at a time.

“I was asked by the chairman to take charge of today’s game, Brentford and maybe the FA Cup-tie at Carlisle.

“After that, who knows? The likelihood is there will be a new coach coming in and I would love to stay and be a part of that, everyone knows what I think about this football club.

“But hey, we all know what football is and how it can change very quickly.

“We’ve won very well today and if we win again at Brentford and in the cup, maybe it gives the chairman something else to think about.”

Bullen praised the players following the emphatic triumph at Forest, where the Owls took an early lead through Adam Reach before further goals from Jordan Rhodes and Lucas Joao.

He added: “They did very well today, particularly in the second half when we were very disciplined with our football.

“In the first half I thought we maybe overplayed it at times and that allowed Forest the chance to get on the ball themselves and push forward.

“Joe Wildsmith did really well in the early stages of that first half, he kept them at bay, and from there we grew in confidence and went on to win the game.”
