Goal hero Adam Reach is urging his Wednesday teammates to stay grounded despite their three-match winning run in the Championship.

Jos Luhukay's charges defeated Reading on Saturday to seal their first away win of the campaign and go into the first international break on a high.

Victory lifted them into the top half of the division and within touching distance of the top-six.

But Reach, who expertly opened the scoring at the Madejski Stadium, is refusing to get carried away.

"I'm not going to stand here and say we are going to be pushing for play-offs because I think that's what the club have done in previous years," he said. 

"We are now just going to enjoy our rest and concentrate on the first game after the international break.

"If we concentrate like that, be disciplined, keep plugging away and getting wins, hopefully we can go on a nice little run.

"But in this league, if you start looking too far ahead, then you are going to shoot yourself in the foot and we are not going to make that mistake again."

Beating Reading, Ipswich Town and Millwall has raised spirits at Hillsborough after lacklustre display against Brentford. Luhukay branded their 2-0 loss at Griffin Park as "unacceptable".

Reach conceded: "I think it was a reality check. We realised as a team that we can't turn up and be so far away from 100 per cent. We have to be all at it. All 11 of you and the three subs who might come on.

"It woke us all up a little bit and showed that we need to be 100 per cent all the time and I think since then - take away the Wolves game which was in the cup - we have done that.

"We have been very disciplined. We have won three games in this league which is very, very tough."
