Liam Palmer has taken the positives from Tuesday’s trip to Brentford.
Wednesday kept their eighth clean sheet of the campaign in all competitions and were unfortunate not to bring three points back to S6.
Stevie May struck the post in the first half but Palmer believes Wednesday can take plenty from the game and says the squad are not down on their luck.
“You make your own luck at the end of the day and you have to keep plugging away,” he said.
“We were happy to come away with a point in the end, we had our chances but had to defend well and it’s always pleasing to get a clean sheet.
“It was a fast pace and I thought we worked the ball in good areas, put in some good crosses and were unlucky on a number of occasions.
“Maybe we do need that bit of luck with the ball going in off the post rather than coming back out to safety.”
Following defeat to Watford on Saturday, Palmer was pleased to respond in a positive manner and added:
“The way to respond to a set back like Saturday is to go to Brentford, be solid, be resilient and I think we did that.
“We have got to keep doing the basics well and stay compact as a unit. When you go down to an early goal, it can make life difficult.
“But if you can have that mentality of being tough to beat from the start.”
