It has been a disappointing campaign for the Owls, who were much-fancied at the beginning of the year to mount a third consecutive promotion tilt.

But Wednesday have failed to live up to expectations and are languishing in 16th position.

Luhukay has called on the Owls to finish the season on a high note and his team will entertain high-flying Fulham on Saturday aiming to secure a fourth straight win. Victories over Leeds United, Preston North End and Sunderland mean it is highly likely Wednesday will avoid being sucked into a late relegation battle. The Owls are 13 points clear of the drop zone with six matches left to play.

Holding midfielder Pelupessy, recruited in the January transfer window, told The Star: “I think Jos arrived two or three weeks before me and the start was difficult because we had a lot of injuries and players were coming in from the youth team.

“Now the team is getting better and everybody is back and also the young players are doing well. The team is getting bigger and better.

“We are feeling very good, which is normal when you win three times in a row.

“They were important points and we can look a little bit upwards now so it is a good feeling of course.”
