Who is Sheffield Wednesday's Player of the Season?

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

With a long campaign drawing to a close, we look at the runners and riders for the accolade of top man in Stuart Gray's side?

It has been a steady season for the South Yorkshire club as they have avoided the annual battle with the relegation places and for a period over Christmas and New Year when they won five out of seven league games, a tussle for a play-off spot looked possible.

However, inconsistency and a season-long struggle to score goals has hampered any hopes of a top six spot in the Sky Bet Championship. But in an encouraging and stable campaign - which has also seen a takeover from Thai businessman Dejphon Chansiri - there are a number of names vying for the Owls' Player of the Season award.

Keiren Westwood

18 clean sheets this season tells its own story and the former Sunderland, Coventry and Carlisle shot-stopper is Wednesday's top appearance maker with 38 starts.

Tom Lees

Second behind Westwood in the appearance stakes is centre half Tom Lees with 37. Wednesday took advantage of financial strife and behind-the-scenes turmoil to steal Lees from Leeds United in the summer of 2014, and the 24-year-old has been a rock at the heart of a mean defensive unit. Steady if unspectacular, Lees epitomises what most fans want in a centre half.

Jose Semedo

The Portugese midfielder signed a one-year contract extension last summer and has celebrated it with an impressive season for Stuart Gray's men. Semedo won the fans' Player of the Month vote in January, as the 29-year-old was influential in the club's best run of the season.

Chris Maguire

26-year-old Scot Maguire has contributed some crucial goals from midfield in a campaign where the strikers have largely failed to deliver. Maguire has six goals to his name including decisive goals in wins against Blackpool and Nottingham Forest.

Lewis McGugan

Two loan spells in the 2014-15 season have brought McGugan 17 appearances and three goals. But it is the performances in the second half of the campaign that have brought McGugan to the fore, as the attacking midfielder has brought an extra dimension to the Owls and provided a cutting edge. The popular 26-year-old, on loan from Watford, has also expressed an interest in a permanent move to Hillsborough.
