Garry Monk was delighted for his players following the 3-1 win at Charlton, insisting they got their rewards after recent frustration.
The Owls ran out worthy winners in the capital to post a first win from six games to get the campaign back on track.
Monk told swfc.co.uk: “They got their just desserts today and they have seen for themselves how they can come back from some frustrating results and perform like that.
“Charlton had injury problems but they are a difficult side no matter what and a confident side too with the momentum of promotion.
“But I thought we were very good today, very professional and we got the job done.
“A lot of things haven’t gone our way recently but sometimes you have to make your own luck and we’ve done that today with a very professional performance.”
