Following an enforced break over the festive period and the disruption caused due to a COVID outbreak in the squad, Darren Moore says Wednesday must work towards regaining their rhythm.
Prior to the home postponements against Accrington and Burton, Wednesday held the longest unbeaten run in the top four tiers and the fewest defeats in League One.
But the Owls have stumbled since the restart with back-to-back defeats at Sunderland and Shrewsbury.
Wednesday next face Plymouth on Saturday 15 January.
“You have to find that rhythm again,” the gaffer said.
“There were stages at the start of the season where I saw similarities with that and we have worked incredibly hard to find that consistency and that the team is difficult to beat and is relentless.
“We have to look at what has happened over the course of the last two games.
“We have lost two games in four days and when you are connected to a club like Sheffield Wednesday, we know that isn’t acceptable.
“The break has definitely damaged our rhythm without a doubt. How do you get it back? You get it back by working, there is no special formula, you can't hide or duck away from it.
“It is only us that is going to get that rhythm back.”
