Wednesday’s all-action midfielder Sam Hutchinson feels the side have hit the right form ahead of the Boxing Day meeting against league leaders Newcastle.
The Owls have won four and lost just once in the last five, securing a top-six spot prior to the trip to St James’ Park.
Hutchinson says the Magpies pose a difficult opposition - but they can be overcome:
He said: “It is probably the biggest challenge we’ve faced all season – Newcastle in their backyard, and they are top of the league.
“But we concentrate on ourselves. That’s what we do with every team. If we are ourselves and play well, we can beat any team in this league.
“We are never going to give up, and try and go as hard as possible.”
Highlighting the Owls’ recent strong run of results, Hutchinson added: “If you look now, Newcastle have got a much stronger squad than they had last year.
“But we’re stronger as well. In the last few months, we have got the results, and it is a results business.
“We are learning how to grind out performances, and we want to keep improving.”
