Wednesday have now won just once in their last 11 league games, however Pudil, who was superb at the back in Jos Luhukay's first match in charge believes victories are just around the corner if they build on what they did at Bramall Lane.

"It was a tough game, a very tough game but I think we did well all game," he said. "Defensively we were very, very strong, closing the spaces for United so they couldn't play.

"I wouldn't say we deserved to win but I think we had a few more chances than Sheffield United and if a few nice shots go in we could have got three points, But everyone is happy with a point."

He added: "A new manager came in, we didn't have time to prepare for the game but he did well. From the first minute we did well.

"We just tried to do our best and if we carry on like that then we are going to start get back to winning ways which is what we want and what the fans deserve as well."

Pudil went on to praise the backing the team received from more than 2000 Owls fans in the stadium.

"Big credit to our fans they were amazing the whole game and because of them we took the point," he said.
