Claude Dielna says the Owls must forget their FA Cup heartbreak and swiftly move on to Saturday’s league clash at Nottingham Forest.
Wednesday were edged out by Manchester City right at the last on Sunday and having taken stock overnight, Dielna insists the only way is up.
He told swfc.co.uk: “We did ourselves proud but it was not to be. As far as we are concerned, we now look ahead to Nottingham Forest and try to get a good result there.
“The cups are nice but the Championship is the most important for the club.
“We are in good form, we have won two games from two in the league and we only just lost to a big club such as Manchester City in the cup.
“We have plenty to feel good about and we will focus on the positives.”
In the bigger picture, Dielna feels his transition to English football is on the home straight as he stores more and more first team football under the belt.
The tough-tackling Frenchman accedes to a bedding-in process that has served him well.
Dielna added: “It has been hard work but this is a new country and a new way of playing football.
“But I feel I have done well. All I want to do is play well and help the club and right now that is what I am doing.
“There is more to come from me and I hope more from us as a team.”
