Relief was the prime emotion on the day for Owls fans but there was extra-special praise for matchwinner Kieran Lee as his double secured a comeback win for Sheffield Wednesday against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder, on his 150th appearance, hit the winner in injury time for the second home game in a row and drew plenty of plaudits from Wednesdayites.

"If there is a better midfielder in the Championship than @kieranlee1988 then I haven't seen him yet.Fantastic this afternoon," commented @mja_owl on twitter. Lee's team mates even got in on the act with @vincesasso stating: "@kieranlee1988 is the most underrated player of the championship. #fact"

@WOTMTPaul added: "Have to say @kieranlee1988 is in serious danger of being my second favourite ever at #swfc after Saint Roland. Brilliant today as always." While @Keegoswfc sounded a note of caution, with: "Anyone else think we should stop hyping @kieranlee1988 ??? We don't wanna lose him."

Lee's been proving people wrong for a while now and @MickyD80 is the latest to admit the boy who's touch is golden has won him around: "Hold my hands up, i said after the playoff final that Kieran Lee was the weak link in our midfield. But he's proving me so very wrong."

And then there was some common sense from @leejarvis1: "Just a thought but if everyone keeps saying Kieran Lee is underrated and talk about how good he is, surely that makes him rated?"

Away from Lee, @mattbarton79 indulges himself in a little schadenfreude: "Still have a little giggle to myself about all the fans that leave early. Will they ever learn?"

On the game itself, @JONATHA31283773 write: "Good comeback win today. Yes we shouldn't go 1 down all the time but it was a fluke goal. Onwards and upwards" and @punkchef41 made a similar point: "No clean sheet to be fair it was good strike but we do come back into games just need to tighten the defence and take chance."

And that was the general consensus as @supsterjnr added: "Superb 3 points today. 3 home wins on the bounce from losing positions. Need to start getting out of the blocks quicker."
