Sheffield Wednesday fans react on Twitter to Tom Lees’ performance v Brighton

Sheffield Wednesday fans were thanking Leeds for selling them Tom Lees.

Sheffield Wednesday continued their strong run of form that sees them currently sitting in eighth place in the Championship table, having drawn 0-0 with undefeated Brighton.

It was a tight game, with no team reaching shot numbers in double figures, but it ensured that Wednesday remained within the hunt for a play-off place, or even automatic promotion.

One player who really stood out for the Owls was central defender Tom Lees, who lined up alongside Glen Loovens in the heart of the back-line.

Leeds, who started his career at Leeds United, made the move to Yorkshire rivals Wednesday in the summer of 2014. He impressed in his debut season with Wednesday, and many Leeds fans suggested that the club had made the wrong decision selling him to the Hillsborough club.

And once again, the 24-year-old proved himself as one of the most underrated and consistent defenders in the Championship, shielding the Wednesday goal from a Brighton side with a strong goal threat.

Following the game, Wednesday fans took to Twitter to praise Lees’ performance, with many claiming that they still cannot believe Leeds decided to sell the centre-half.
