Stuart Gray is welcoming tonight’s clash against Brighton and views the game as a good chance to hit back after defeat to Doncaster on Saturday.
The Owls head coach has said one of the benefits of a busy schedule is having the opportunity to respond soon after a setback.
Given Wednesday’s good run of form on home soil, with wins over Middlesbrough, Birmingham and QPR, Gray has challenged his players to continue on the winning path at Hillsborough and said:
“We are back on our own patch this evening where we have been very good in our last three games so I am expecting a good performance.
“The good thing about having such a busy schedule of games is that if you lose, you get straight back on the bike as it were and go again.
"Brighton will be fired up because that sixth spot is up for grabs but it’s important we impose our game on them and be on the front foot from the first minute."
During the pre-match press conference ahead of tonight’s clash, Gray has dismissed comments that there is nothing left to play for this season, with the Owls now 13 points clear of danger and amongst the mid-table pack.
Far from it in fact, the head coach is expecting a strong fight to the finish from his troops with the aim to finish as high up the Championship as possible, adding:
“As far as I’m concerned, whenever we have points to play for, there is something to play for.
“Every time they pull on a shirt for Sheffield Wednesday, there is something to play for.
“That continues this evening because we have nine games remaining and 27 points to play for and we want to finish as high up the table as possible.”
