A point and a clean sheet from Saturday’s home clash with Huddersfield has given the Owls a base from which to build, according to defender Di’Shon Bernard.
The youngster was a standout performer at the back for Wednesday, who were resolute throughout the 90 minutes to post a first shutout on home soil this season.
Although much work is required to overturn our start to the season, Bernard believes the performance is a platform and said:
“We needed the clean sheet as a team. I thought we were hard to beat, nice and aggressive and it’s something we need to build on with plenty more clean sheets to come.
“We needed the positive energy around us from the crowd, it really helped. We definitely need them.”
Heading into the international break, Bernard now joins up with Jamaica for their two 2023/24 CONCACAF Nations League fixtures against Granada and Haiti.
The former Manchester United man will then link back up with the Owls squad at Middlewood Road next week as the boys prepare for a trip to Watford.
He continued: “The games before have been our mistakes that have cost us really so it’s just about being hard to beat. I can’t take my foot off the gas, I’m trying to set a good point for me to hit and keep building game by game.
“Saturday was a point to build on and hopefully we can go out and get that win in our next game.”
