Taking into account the Owls’ pattern of results this season and Ross Wallace feels the club can go another positive run with 12 games of the regular season remaining.
Rather than focus on the ultimate end of season target, the experienced midfielder has explained why it’s vital to concentrate on overcoming each hurdle as they come.
As well as combating each challenge, the Scot feels it is also important to take a step back and realise how far the group have come in such a short space of time.
He said: “Look how far we have come as a team and as a squad, it’s a long way.
“Sometimes you just need to take that step back and put everything into perspective.”
Wednesday head into Saturday’s South Yorkshire derby against Rotherham in sixth spot and victory over the struggling Millers would go some way to firm up that grip on a play-off spot.
Wallace explained why it’s important to focus only on the next challenge and added:
“It’s one game at a time. As players, it’s very hard to look two or three games ahead because you discuss tactics and look at who you are going to play against tactically and position-wise.
“There are that many things going on in your head for the next game that it is impossible to think about the one after that.
“I think at the start of the season everybody would have snapped your hands of for a top six finish but we will continue on and give the season everything we have.”
