Steve Bruce praised the resilience of his side following the goalless draw at Stoke that extended the Owls’ unbeaten run to 12 games.
A game of few chances saw Wednesday and the Potters share the majority of possession and ultimately the points.
Bruce said: “A point is not what we want but I’ll take it.
“We are playing players who are not 100% at the moment, so it’s a bit of a makeshift team.
“And we weren’t at our best today if I’m being honest, but hey, you have to praise the effort and resilience that we’ve shown today.
“Make no mistake, Stoke are a very good side with some very good players, so to come here which can be a very difficult place to come to and get a point is not too bad.”
The Owls now face back to back home games against Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest, contests that Bruce believes could prove pivotal on the home straight.
He added: “We go home now with two very, very big games.
“So, let’s see what we can do, we’ve still got a bit of a chance, we’ve put ourselves in there and fair play to the players.
“When I came into the club I think it was a case of Steve, make sure you keep us in this division.
“But we’ve gone on a remarkable run, it’s actually Championship form, so well done to everyone who has helped make that happen.”
