Lee Bullen has told the Guardian that he believes he is up to being Sheffield Wednesday’s next permanent manager.

Bullen has been put in temporary charge at Hillsborough, following the departure of Steve Bruce to Newcastle United.

The 48-year-old is now in his third caretaker spell as Wednesday boss and he has got the Owls off to a great start.

Wednesday have won their first two Championship matches.

 

And Bullen now has eyes on the top job, as he thinks he is up for the task.

“I think I could do it going forward but I’m not going to put words in the mouth of anybody out there,” Bullen said.

“I will just carry on doing what we have been doing and hopefully the results can do the talking.”

Wednesday certainly appear in no hurry to change managers at this present moment.

The Owls have coped well with the disruption of Bruce’s departure and have made a very strong start to the campaign.

Bullen will be hoping Wednesday make it three wins out of three at the weekend, as if his side pick up a victory over Millwall it will strengthen his claim for the job even further.
