As the Owls continue to claw back the deficit towards the Championship safety zone, Danny Röhl says the ‘high performance culture’ he is creating will keep his side on track.
Wednesday beat Hull 3-1 on Monday evening in front of the Sky TV cameras, turning in an impressive all-round performance at Hillsborough.
It's now five wins in eight for Röhl's men and just three points from the line.
Röhl told swfc.co.uk: “We still have a long way to go and for me it is about a high performance culture on a consistent basis.
“The players know what I demand from them and what I will continue to demand.
“Today, the performance was fantastic. Even with 11 v 11 I thought we were the better side. After that with the red card, it can be difficult to play against 10 men.
“You have a lot of possession and the opponent will be very tight so you must find new ways to break through and new angles.
“We did that today and the goals we scored were different goals from different places.”
Röhl is combatting a lengthy injury and suspension list while producing back-to-back wins having overcome Preston last Friday.
Cardiff are next in the FA Cup before league battle resumes at Southampton.
The boss added: “Everyone is working so hard in difficult moments with injuries and suspensions.
“We have everyone pushing in the same direction, the individual and team performance was outstanding.
“We have a small break from the league now, then we go to Southampton.
“I am looking forward to returning to Southampton which was my first club in the UK, I know this will be a tough game against a very good opponent and this will be a big test for us.
“But for now, we rest, we recover and we prepare for Cardiff in the cup on Saturday.”
