Dig deep and stand up to be counted – that is the message from Dave Jones as the Owls continue their hunt for the first win of the new campaign.
Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Yeovil extended the Owls’ unbeaten run to four games but the team still await their maiden success.
He said: “We have to dig deep and see out games. We have been in front in four of our last five games and we have to make that advantage count.
“I don’t know whether there’s a bit of fear out there about playing in front of 20,000 of our supporters because we look a different side away from home.
“If that is the case we have to stop it and stop it fast because we have 20-odd home games to go.
“We played in front of 30,000 for our last home game last season and we were outstanding so something is not quite right.
“But no one wants to go out and not play to the best of their ability. It’s not happening for us at home at the moment and we have to address that.
“We have to stand up and be counted.”
The Owls head to Birmingham next week and the manager has no concerns over his side’s ability to gain a positive result in the Midlands.
He added: “When we go away we seem to be more relaxed, we get the ball down and play so I’m sure we will do the same thing at Birmingham.
“Whether the pressure gets to one or two at home I don’t know but as I say, we have to sort it.”
