Caolan Lavery will have another wish come true if Stuart Gray is appointed as Wednesday boss in the wake of the sensational 6-0 win against Leeds.

Lavery yearned for a fresh chance in the Owls team and when it came on Saturday he seized it, going on as a sub and scoring his first goals for the club.

The 21-year-old striker also hopes, like other players, that the caretaker boss stays in charge.

“Yes, of course, he has been brilliant all season; I don’t see why not,” he said.

“He’s been good with everyone, working hard with everyone. We went out like we do in every game, to get a result for him, ourselves and the fans. We did that.”

Chairman Milan Mandaric told The Star last night that there will be no announcement today but he is not interviewing anyone else - despite rumours about Paul Ince: “There is no pressure on us,” he said. “I like to be calm and collected, and I am very happy.”

The Owls are also in the market for a striker and have signed former QPR centre half Oguchi Onyewu for the rest of this season, but Lavery boosted his own prospects by adding Saturday’s two goals to the three he scored for Plymouth on loan.

“It’s always good competition for other players to come in but I don’t think scoring two goals did me any harm,” he said. It was only his fourth appearance for the Owls, all from the bench.

“They sent me on loan to Plymouth to see if I could prove myself,” he added. “I think I did it quite well, and it gave me the confidence that if I got a chance, hopefully I’d take it.”
