There have been no lack of talking points over the past two weeks for Wednesday.
A stunning victory away at Villa, two home draws with Championship high-flyers Leeds and West Brom, two stunning strikes from Adam Reach and five points collected from an immensely tricky period.
There was also a huge sense of disappointment at drawing 2-2 with the Baggies in midweek with Darren Moore’s side coming from two goals down in the late stages.
Now Jos Luhukay has underlined the importance of being mentally right for another tough encounter away at Bristol City on Sunday.
“This is the last game before the international break and we must come to 100% mentally,” he explained.
“The physical side is not a problem, it’s more that you must have a new focus for the game at Bristol.
“The winner on Sunday will move much closer to the play-off positions so for both teams it is a very important game.
“We are not disappointed with our performances and that gives us so much hope for Sunday and after the international.”
Heading to Ashton Gate with confidence and optimism, the Dutchman says there have been plenty of positives to build on and he added:
“Football is sometimes too unpredictable.
“We felt we had the control against West Brom and in two minutes we came from a very good feeling to big disappointment after the game.
“But we played two draws against two of the best teams in the division at this moment.
“What the team did against Leeds and West Brom, I have respect for that and we must go on in this way and believe in each other.
“From the period of the last eight Championship games, we win four, play three draws and lose just one.
“Whether we have brought new players into the team because of injury or suspension or changed the formation, the team have proved very flexible and really made a good job in the last period.”
