Carlos Carvalhal was in good spirits following his side’s best win of the campaign so far.
The head coach stated after the win at Wigan last week that the game was the ‘start of the rest of our season’ and the Owls duly beat Birmingham on Friday night to post their second successive win.
The Blues were on the end of a 3-0 defeat as goals from Jordan Rhodes, Sam Winnall and Adam Reach cemented Wednesday’s play-off berth.
Carvalhal said: “We are in a good place. We have a good win, we are sixth in the table, we have another clean sheet – our 13th of the season – and we scored three goals.
“We are higher in the table with more points, so I am happy. We started and finished this game very well.
“Birmingham had some good spells because this is normal. If a side from League One or League Two comes to Hillsborough, they will have chances – this is football.
“But we defended very well, we attacked very well and so I am very happy.”
Carvalhal was also pleased with the impact of new strike recruits Rhodes and Winnall, both of whom opened their S6 accounts.
And the head coach insisted that the best is yet to come.
“They did very well, they showed good signals but they are only starting at Sheffield Wednesday.
“So they will get better as individuals for us and I am happy with the options that we have.
“If one striker drops out, another one comes in, it is important to have that kind of strength.”
