Tom Lees walked into a ‘buzzing’ dressing room after the 2-0 win against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
The Owls posted one of their most impressive performances of the season at The City Ground and duly enjoyed the scenes after the game.
Lees told swfc.co.uk: “The changing room is buzzing and all the lads are thrilled with the win and the clean sheet.
“I said to Glenn after the game that sometimes when we’ve had clean sheets, we’ve been under pressure, but today I felt we were comfortable.
“We’re all delighted and rightly so because that’s our third win in the league in a row and everyone knows we were really unlucky to come away from Manchester City last with nothing in the cup.”
Despite that last-gasp heartbreak at the Etihad, Lees outlined the positives the Owls took from Manchester and into the Midlands:
“We put a lot of sheer hard work into the Manchester City game and although we lost, we know we played really well against the Premier League champions.
“That confidence played a big part into how well we played against Nottingham Forest and long may it continue.”
