Dave Jones says his players are feeling hard done by but is calling for everyone to stay together if the Owls are to arrest their current slump.
Saturday’s defeat to Bolton was the fourth on the spin for Wednesday, who came out second best to Owen Coyle’s side.
Jones said: “The players are feeling hard done by at the moment because nothing is going right but it’s no use me getting on their backs or anyone else.
“The only way we will get out of this is by everyone sticking together and everyone staying strong.
“We knew the Championship was going to be a tough division this season and that’s the way it’s turning out.
“We had a good start and maybe some people got carried away but make no mistake, this is a hard division.
“But we have good players and we will get out of this slide. Today, if we had gone in at half time 0-0, that would have been a massive boost because we would have had something to build on.
“But again, we are chasing the game and then when we do get back into it, they go up the other end and score almost straight away.
“That’s because we started playing at 100 miles per hour, we take a throw-in, we lose the ball and Bolton go on and score.”
Jones made six changes for the game in a bid to halt the slide and was pleased with individual performances, adding:
“I thought the two young lads in midfield did really well in the first half, then we lost Rhys at half time with a thigh strain and that’s the way things are going for us at the moment.
“That was Kieran Lee’s first game for us and he grew into the game as it went on.
“But it doesn’t matter who I play at the moment because we are conceding goals and that has to stop.”
