If the last two weeks show anything, it’s that a lot can change in football in a short space of time.
Four defeats on the bounce and three below par performances saw Wednesday endure a week to forget.
But that was partly put to bed on Tuesday evening when the Owls turned in an excellent display against high-flyers Bournemouth, inflicting a first defeat on the Cherries and returning to winning ways.
Then the news came on Wednesday night that our 12-point deduction has been reduced to six and the total points tally now up to five, just three from safety.
If ever there was an incentive to go out and build on a positive few days, now is that time as Garry Monk said earlier today:
“We would have preferred it if it was the full 12 but it’s better news than no news.
“I know the club have been working on it behind the scenes and to get six points taken off is a big positive for us and the club and the club feel rightly so.
“It should give everyone a boost. We said at the start that the aim was to get out of the negative as soon as possible but we’d have liked to have done it better.
“The reality is that we are still at the bottom of the league so there is still a lot of work to go, there’s a lot of work to get ourselves further up the league and it is not going to be easy.”
Ahead of the home clash with Millwall on Saturday, Monk continued: “If we can get three points, then potentially we could move out of the relegation places.
“It’s about getting our performance right and knowing what we delivered on Tuesday is exactly what we are capable of.”
