Lee celebrates in style with winner

Another Wednesday late show, another crucial goal from Kieran Lee and another win to lift us to within touching distance of the play-off places.

Lee, celebrating his 150th appearance for the Owls against Forest at S6, marked the occasion in style – heading a leveller on 68 minutes and then firing the winner in the 90th minute … less than a fortnight after his injury time clincher against Bristol City.

Carlos Carvalhal said: “If the plan of the team is to kill me, they are very near, I must tell you. One more game like this and they will kill me.

“We created a lot of chances to win the game. Nottingham Forest were very difficult and organised opponents and they had some chances also.

“When questions are put to us, we must give the correct answers and I felt we did that so we are happy.”

Wednesday dominated the first half but most of our efforts were from long range and Forest took the lead seven minutes before the break when Henri Lansbury’s 25-yarder deflected off Barry Bannan and into the roof of the net.

An excellent full-length save from Keiren Westwood prevented Apostolos Vellios heading Forest further ahead after the interval before we began to take charge again in the second part of the second half.

Lee stole in at the far post to head the equaliser and Ross Wallace saw his chip beat the keeper but cleared off the line by Chris Cohen before Lee struck again, turning the ball home from close range to seal all three points in the closing moments.

Victory lifts us to 11th place, just two points off the play-off positions.
