Carlos Carvalhal dedicated the 3-2 win over Fulham to the late Ron Springett.
The Wednesday legend and Fulham product passed away last weekend and the Cottagers clash served as a memorial game in Ron’s memory.
And the Owls responded in fitting style, emerging triumphant from a hugely entertaining Championship contest.
Carvalhal said: “First of all, I would like to dedicate this game to Ron Springett.
“He was a legend for this club and I am happy we got the win that we dedicate to him.
“We deserved to win. We all know that we have playing well but needed to score the goals and today we scored three times.
“We could have got more goals because we have created the chances but we are happy to score three times.”
The head coach added: “For those who saw us play at Burnley and Bolton, it is no surprise that we won the game because it has been coming.
“We played well at Burnley and even better at Bolton but got only one point. It should have been much more.
“After Burnley I wrote on the board in my office for the players that we lost the game but won as a team.
“Today, it was our day and we did it for Ron and Sheffield Wednesday.”
