Moore also took time to praise their last-gasp hero, Michael Smith, who got his third goal in four games over the weekend, after he fought his way back to form after a tough start to the campaign due to his own injury concerns.

The Owls boss went on to say, "I'm pleased to have him back. What we are seeing is he's moving better… He was carrying a knock in pre-season and I'm glad we decided to bite the bullet and give him the time off to get him fit.

"He has been superb with his hold up play for us. I said to him when he joined us that he will score goals with his head and his feet and he has proven that so long may it continue.”

Wednesday face Burton at 7pm tomorrow evening.
