Jos Luhukay has explained why Keiren Westwood made a surprise appearance for the under-23s at Crewe on Monday.
The out-of-favour keeper had not featured in any competitive game for the Owls this season until he turned out for the academy side and Luhukay said on Friday: “Keiren asked to play and we gave him the chance. It was a good situation for him to come to practice. He played 45 minutes.”
Luhukay added that it was the first time Westwood had asked to play for the under-23s.
