Carlos Carvalhal said getting the second goal made a big difference for the Owls following their 2-0 win against Wolves at Molineux.
Wednesday took the lead in the first half when Fernando Forestieri converted a penalty after he was brought down by Matt Doherty in the area.
At times the Owls played some sublime football, and they grabbed a second when Forestieri fed Lucas Joao in the box, who in turn laid the ball back to Kieran Lee to tuck home.
Carvalhal said: “Today we deserved to win.
“Wolves made it difficult for us in the early stages but we were determined to create chances and we did this very well.
“We scored the first goal and deserved to be in front, but then we wanted to keep making chances and we did this and got the second.
“The second goal made a big difference for us today.
“We played very well, but there have been other games this season where we have played better and not scored the second goal, so it is important that we did this today.”
The Owls were solid throughout with Wolves creating few clear goalscoring opportunities and Carvalhal praised his team’s collective defensive display.
The head coach added: “The whole team was very compact and the defensive organisation was very good.
“Not just Keiren Westwood and the four defenders but the midfielders and attackers also.
“We are in a good way and playing very well, we have improved our efficiency and I hope this continues for the rest of the season.”
