Striker Atdhe Nuhiu says Sheffield Wednesday must remain united as they look to start moving up the Championship table.

Stuart Gray’s troops have gone six league matches without a victory, failing to score in their last three outings.

Some sections of the Owls fans booed the team off after Saturday’s goalless Hillsborough draw with Norwich City but Nuhiu, the Owls goal-scorer, is confident the players will learn from the recent difficult run of results.

He told The Star: “It’s very important we stick together. We haven’t won for a few games but it will come. It’s not a big problem.

“We train very hard. Everybody is giving their best and working really hard for each other. You could see that against Brentford and Norwich.

“We will come out of this run a stronger team. I have full faith in the team.

“During a season, this will not be the last time we don’t pick up results. We have to remain positive.”

Wednesday travel to ninth-placed Charlton Athletic on Saturday aiming to maintain their fine away form. Gray’s men have lost just once on the road in the league.

Five-goal forward Nuhiu said: “We will go to Charlton looking to take the three points.

“We have shown in the away games we have played that we are really confident and bright. We aren’t scared of Charlton and will go there and show no fear. We know we have good players and that we can get a good result.”

Hallam Hope, meanwhile, was recalled from Wednesday by parent club Everton yesterday. The young striker was set to stay Hillsborough until January 1.

But Hope, who has previously had loan stints with with Northampton Town and Bury in League Two, has returned to Goodison Park, having made only four first-team appearances for the Owls.
