The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

TOM Lees is pleas­antly sur­prised by the suc­cess of his de­fen­sive part­ner­ship with Glenn Loovens.

Lees, 24, joined Sh­effield Wed­nes­day from Leeds United in 2014 while Loovens had ar­rived from Zaragoza the pre­vi­ous year.

And their part­ner­ship at the back is re­ally start­ing to bear fruit this sea­son, with four clean sheets in the last five games in all com­pe­ti­tions and the Owls push­ing for a play-off spot.

“It’s weird, it just clicks,” said Lees .“Glenn is a good talker and great po­si­tion­ally but I wouldn’t say there is any real se­cret.

“We just read each other’s games quite well and help the boys either side of us.”
