MATCH FO­CUS

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

Good day: Kieran Lee

Since Jan­uary 2, the Owls mid­fielder has only fea­tured in a five-game spell at the end of last sea­son. He missed all pre-sea­son, and Satur­day was his first taste of foot­ball in four months. One goal, one as­sist, plenty of plau­dits.

Bad day: Joost van Aken

Hardly a ‘bad day’ but the Dutch cen­tre-half spoiled an al­most per­fect Owls de­but, by not get­ting close enough to Ben Os­born, who skipped his chal­lenge to go for­ward and score for Not­ting­ham For­est.

Key mo­ment: 63rd minute

With the game locked at 1-1, Kieran Lee’s left-wing cor­ner was de­liv­ered to per­fec­tion, al­low­ing Steven Fletcher to rise high­est and head in at the Lep­pings Lane end.

Ref watch: An­drew Madley

Strangely kept his card in his pocket for qute a few ro­bust tack­les. No ma­jor de­ci­sions to make though.

Ver­dict

This vic­tory was vital for Wed­nes­day, af­ter fail­ing to win ei­ther of their open­ing two Cham­pi­onship games at Hills­bor­ough. Need to keep a set­tled side now for September.
