Nine games into his tenure as Owls boss, Jos Luhukay believes his side are heading in a positive direction.
From those nine games, Wednesday have posted six clean sheets, advanced to the fifth round of the FA Cup and registered their maiden league victory under Jos against Derby at Hillsborough last week.
Following on from the goalless draw with Swansea in the fifth round of the FA Cup last weekend, the Owls head to Millwall this evening and the manager said:
“I think we are in a very good direction, with the team and with the players and we are enjoying it.
“We are giving our best every day and we are seeing the players’ intensive work in the games.
“The mentality and character is very high and also the discipline.”
But with a hectic fixture schedule in the Championship, combined with an FA Cup replay away at Swansea on the horizon, Jos has plenty to consider in terms of team selection.
“We must look to the intensity and the physical situation of every player,” he told swfc.co.uk.
“We look at the last games, how many minutes, how long each player plays and keep a close eye on that.
“We have a very intensive programme, in the FA Cup and Championship.
“Millwall is next, Saturday Aston Villa, then Swansea, then Bristol City so we have a lot of work ahead.
“But we look only to the next game and then we must have a very good regeneration for the next game to Aston Villa.”
