Keiren Westwood says he is 'desperate' for Fernando Forestieri to build on his superb goal which helped Sheffield Wednesday to a 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

The Owls keeper was delighted to see his team mate pop up with an effort of impressive ingenuity, doubling the lead after Almen Abdi had put Wednesday in front with another great strike, albeit completely different to Forestieri's.

"Love it," said Westwood afterwards. "We're on at him because you are desperate for him to do well. He scored a fantastic goal and he was straight in the crowd and I'm delighted for him. I'm buzzing for him."

The victory over Forest, who had seen a Ross McCormack penalty saved by Westwood just moments before Abdi opened the scoring, placed the Owls seven points clear of seventh-placed Norwich City in that race for promotion to the Premier League.

Crucially, Wednesday have a game in hand over the Canaries, with Brentford making the trip to Hillsborough on Tuesday night.

"Every game is huge now," said Westwood. "No matter how many games you win or lose, the next game always turns into the next big one. We go into that game looking to try and get a win again. It's what everyone tries to do in the Championship. If we keep on grinding out these wins, we will be in a good position."

He added: "We are running out of games which is good in a way because we keep winning. I think that's the key to it all."
