Another former Leeds man faced the Elland Road outfit on Saturday afternoon.
There was plenty of praise for Lees' performance against his former club Leeds despite difficult circumstances - and despite the fact the visitors went on to beat Wednesday 2-1. There was more praise for Lees generally, however, with several nominating him as one of Sheffield Wednesday's players of the season.
It's interesting to see how well some of the stars Leeds sold have fared this campaign. Ross McCormack, for instance, got a hat-trick against Middlesbrough this weekend. And Lees has certainly performed for Sheffield Wednesday this term - some fans even claiming the Championship side would have been relegated without him.
Saturday's result, though, leaves Wednesday 14th, four points above Leeds, who earned their first win after five straight defeats. Both sides will need a busy summer to ensure improved campaigns next time around and, of those Sheffield Wednesday fans want to keep, Lees is one of just several names...
Here's what Wednesday fans made of the 24-year-old's display as he faced up against his former side:
@joshgrainger16 best defender we've had in years. 17 cleans sheets this season. No josh, thank you for Tom Lees.— Reece Davies (@ReeceDaviesSWFC) April 25, 2015
Tom Lees is definitely up for this.. Winning almost everything #swfcLIVE— Owlsonline.com (@Owlsonline) April 25, 2015
Today's summed up our entire season at Hillsborough. Clueless going forward. We'd have been relegated without Lees, Loovens & Westwood #swfc— Nigel Short (@nigel_short) April 25, 2015
Things you don't need 140 characters for, Vol 1; #swfc players you would retain. Westwood, Lees, Lee, Loovens, er...— Paul Taylor (@WOTMTPaul) April 25, 2015
Felt sorry for Lees and Westwood having to play with two shocking fullbacks and a fullback playing cb, they were the only options we had— Daniel (@Daniel_Swfc) April 25, 2015
Positives this season. Westwood, Lees, Lee, Semedo, away form. And a higher league finish Negatives. Maghoma, our strikers, home form.— Terry Hibberd (@HoylandOwl) April 25, 2015
@swfc Westwood a deserving POTY but Lees must be a close second. Very impressive debut season.— Rob (@rjh19850) April 25, 2015
