Togetherness has been the main reason for Wednesday’s upturn in form, according to winger Adam Reach.

Carlos Carvalhal’s men received plenty of criticism after a poor run of one victory in seven Championship matches.

But the Owls are heading in the right direction again after back-to-back wins over Millwall and promotion-chasing Aston Villa.

“You try and zone out of it (the criticism),” said Reach, who broke the deadlock after 18 seconds at Villa Park. “I try not to look at them things and let it affect you but you do hear it.

“You can’t hide from what fans are saying. There was a lot of negative feedback from other sources on how we have been playing.

“But in the dressing room, the coaching staff and players knew together how good we can be.

“We have shown a great togetherness over the last couple of weeks, blocked all that negativity out and got a couple of positive results. Now there will be positive opinions from fans and journalists etc.

“I thought Villa, in terms of a Championship away performance, was just about as good as it gets.

“We were disappointed to concede at the end because we felt the performance merited a clean sheet but, all in all, it was a good day’s work.

“We, as a team, won’t get carried away. It’s two wins on the bounce and we will enjoy some rest over the international break and get prepared for another busy period.”
