Wednesday have won just six matches this season - all by a single goal margin.

Speaking before the departure of Luhukay was confirmed, Bullen said: "The nervousness is there and I'd be stupid to say anything less.

"It's understandable but it can change.

"The players have an opportunity to change it.

"It's down to belief in each other and your teammates around you.

"I've been there (as a player) when itHillsborough has been bouncing and when it's been tough.

"I was never the best player but I thought I had a strong enough character.

"One of the biggest frustrations for the fans is they know these players are a lot better than they've shown.

"We've got to continue to believe these players can turn things around."
