Keiren Westwood said he thought he’d played his last game for Wednesday before caretaker boss Lee Bullen recalled him for Saturday’s home clash with Preston.
Tweeting after our 1-0 victory, which saw the keeper make his first Championship start of the season, Westwood said: ‘I honestly thought I would never pull on the SWFC jersey again.
Whatever happens in the next month or over the course of the season, I will never forget the reception I received today by the fans. If I could personally thank everybody individually I would.
Thanks to Bully for throwing me in, it wasn’t a pretty game but we deserved the victory.
I thought the lads in front of me were magnificent’.
