Adam Reach has reflected positively on a busy period for the Owls.
Wednesday enjoyed a productive October and sit three points off top spot heading into this weekend’s clash with Blackburn.
The Owls’ mettle was put to the test last week with three tough fixtures, starting away at Cardiff, before facing back to back home games with Stoke and Leeds.
A trip to Rovers is next up on Saturday and full of praise for the squad, Reach said:
“We’ve got to kick on now after a busy period, we’ve had three tough games and we’ve taken some good points.
“The games come thick and fast, you have a couple of days where you can get your rest in before another busy period again.
“But we’ll be ready for it. I think we’ve proven to everybody that we can be right up there come the end of the season.
“The players themselves have got to take a big amount of credit and I think we’ve done brilliantly to be where we are in the league.”
The 26-year-old added: “We’ve stuck in there, we’ve got ourselves in a good position, the manager has come in and he is someone who is improving every player - everyone can say they’ve improved in some area under him.
“We need to keep that going, there is plenty more work to do and plenty of positives so far but there are areas that we can improve and we are always striving to get better.”
