Carlos Carvalhal said his team played rock ‘n’ roll football in the second half after the Owls’ 3-2 win over Bolton at Hillsborough.
Fernando Forestieri scored a long range effort in the first half, and brace from Gary Hooper helped Wednesday earn three points against the Trotters who twice came from behind to equalise.
Carvalhal said: “In the first half we listened to the melody that Bolton were playing.
“They played very calm, quiet music, but in the second half we changed the music and played some rock ‘n’ roll.
“We wanted the win so we had to take risks, we played more open in the second half which meant anyone could have got the goals.”
Carvalhal was seen spurring the fans on after the Owls scored their second goal as the head coach felt the outside help was important.
He added: “It was difficult circumstances because we had some players who were tired after playing against Fulham.
“We needed the outside influence to give the players extra energy and our fans did that tonight.
“This win is not just for the players, but also for the fans as they were fantastic and gave the players a boost.”
