It may be Fernando Forestieri who earns the headlines after Sheffield Wednesday's 3-0 win over Reading at Hillsborough but Jos Luhukay wasn't concentrating on the Owls magician.

Instead, Luhukay declared himself 'proud' of the Wednesday team after a dominant display against the Championship strugglers.

Forestieri got things going in the first half when he opened the scoring after good work on the left by George Boyd and Daniel Pudil.

Boyd got the second soon after the restart after Forestieri raced to pick up a loose ball and play in Adam Reach for the assist.

And then late in the game, Forestieri capped off a great performance with an incredible show of tenacity and dedication to fight for the ball and then fire in a rocket of a shot from the edge of the box.

Luhukay, though, is particularly pleased by the spirit on the camp as Wednesday recorded their fifth win in the last seven games.

"I'm very proud of my team," he said. "In this last period, we gathered some important points to stay in the league. We won five out of the last seven games, so the team has its confidence back.

"We have a team that fights for each other. In the first half, we needed a lot of patience to create the chance and sometimes the last ball was not always in the right direction.

"The team had a very good inspiration and motivation to bring a good result to play a good game and bring the support from our fans."

On Forestieri, Luhukay added: "The team had a very good inspiration and motivation to bring a good result to play a good game and bring the support from our fans.

"I think Fernando was very inspirational and very motivating for a good game. He made the important moments, scored goals, he was dangerous and made opportunities for us.

"We are happy for Fernando, but we must also look at what the team has done over the last two months."
