The Owls extended their run of resistance to seven games with the 0-0 draw at QPR and Carlos Carvalhal was satisfied with the performance at Loftus Road.
The head coach made seven changes to the team that drew with Hull last Saturday and took pride from how the new-look side gave as good as they got at Loftus Road:
“We saw two strong teams here going to battle and it was a hard game, with both sides giving everything.
“I think we played a good game and it shows we can make changes, no problem, we have good players and a good squad.
“The players who came in did very well and I think we gave Queens Park Rangers a very good game.”
One player who came back into the fold was Modou Sougou – but the Frenchman’s involvement was cut short by a Clint Hill challenge on the stroke of half time.
Sougou was carried off with a shoulder injury and Carvalhal would not be drawn on the contentious nature of the decision – which went the way of Hill.
He added: “I do not want to talk about the referee, I never talk about the referee.
“If there is any incident in any game, anyone who sees that game can make their own mind up.
“I prefer to talk about my players and the game and we did well. We will now be ready for the derby on Friday.”
