As the Owls head down to Millwall sitting pretty at the top of the Championship table, Lee Bullen has lauded the importance of efficiency of defence as well as attack.
Wednesday have struck five goals in their two games so far and conceded just one – which would have been two but for the awareness of Julian Borner against Barnsley last Saturday.
The German read a threatening situation perfectly and dropped back to hoof a Mamadou Thiam shot off the line and preserve his team’s clean sheet.
And in a powerful image captured by fledgling Owls photographer Harriet Massey, Borner celebrating his key intervention resonated with Bullen, who said:
“I’ve seen the photograph of Julian and I love to see that kind of thing. It’s just as important for the lads at the back to be right on top of their game as it is the ones up top.
“Julian saw the danger, he was alert to the situation and he’s saved us a goal and the clean sheet.
“Credit to him, the lads love him and you can see why. He’s come in, he’s an infectious character who does his job very well.”
Harriet studies photography at the Hillsborough campus of The Sheffield College whilst gaining experience out in the field as it were with the Owls.
She is currently in her third year with Wednesday we are delighted to see both parties maximise the benefits of the latest season-long loan!
