'˜We must not think we are better than what we are,' warns Sheffield Wednesday chief

As he conducted his post-match press duties pitchside following the Owls' victory over struggling Reading, Jos Luhukay was in good spirits.

And who could blame him?

Wednesday go into the international break on the back of three successive Championship victories.

Their 2-1 win at the Madejski Stadium was not always pleasing on the eye but the result lifted the Owls up to 11th.

It represents Wednesday's best start to a season since owner Dejphon Chansiri bought the club in 2015.

Luhukay told The Star: "I'm happy that we have 10 points. We have worked hard to achieve that.

"But we not must think we are better than what we are. We must work hard every game to be successful.

"We have six games in three weeks after the international break."

While Luhukay is satisfied with their start, he feels the Owls should be even higher in the table. The Dutchman points to the Hillsborough draw with Hull City where Wednesday missed a number of opportunities in front of goal.

"When I look back, I speak not about Wigan or Brentford but the two points at home against Hull City," he said. "We could have had more points. We had three, four, five chances to win the game but drew.

"If we had two points more, we stay more now with the clubs in the top position."

Luhukay is not the type of person to get too high when his team wins or too low when they lose.

So after seeing the Owls make their best start to a second-tier campaign in 28 years, Luhukay will be hoping his players can maintain their improved form when they return to action a week on Saturday against Stoke City.
