Sheffield Wednesday defender has this warning ahead of play-off run-in

Tom Lees has insisted that there will be plenty of twists and turns at the top of the Championship table between now and the end of the season.

Sheffield Wednesday defender Tom Lees has admitted to the club's official website that there will be plenty of twists to come in the remaining months of the Championship play-off race, but insisted that he has got a 'promotion feeling' at the club this season.

The Owls are sixth in the table, occupying the final play-off spot, with a three-point cushion with 12 matches of the campaign to go after holding second-place Hull City to a 0-0 draw last Friday.

Lees, who experienced promotion from League Two whilst on loan at Bury in 2011, says that the feeling in the Wednesday camp is similar to the one at the Shakers five years ago.

However, he warned that with such high stakes for all the promotion-chasing teams, the race will take plenty of turns during the run-in.

He told swfc.co.uk: "It will be a lot different if we could gain promotion to the Premier League but the spirit that we had when I was playing at Bury and the spirit in the dressing room is quite similar to what we have here.

"The boys are really enjoying it, working hard for each other and giving each game everything they have. I think the run-in will be really exciting.

"I don’t think any team is going to go from now until the end of the season unbeaten, teams are going to drop points at times. When it comes to the last five/ten games, there are going to be lots of twists."

Wednesday have lost just once in the Championship in 2016, but have stuttered somewhat of late, failing to win any of last three matches.

If they were to finish in the play-off places this season, it would be the club's highest league finish since they were relegated from the Premier League in 2000, having not finished higher than ninth in the second tier in the last 16 years.
