A strong end to the season has sent everyone associated with Sheffield Wednesday into the break with a spring in their collective steps and renewed hope for next year's challenge.
It was expected that this campaign, which has just ended with the Owls in 15th would reap another promotion push after two successive play-off finishes under Carlos Carvalhal.
However, a poor start, a series of very poor performances and a raft of injuries killed off those dreams pretty early and when Carvalhal left for Swansea, Jos Luhukay was brought in to at the very least, steady an increasingly rocky ship.
It took him a little while, but the return to action of some very important players like Tom Lees, Barry Bannan and Fernando Forestieri, coupled with the new-found confidence of others who had been cast aside under the previous boss saw a big lift in performance and results for Wednesday.
That decent end, which saw the Owls pick up six wins and two draws in their last 10 games, has seen bookmakers place Luhukay's side as potential challengers for next season.
Before all of the relegated teams from the Premier League have been confirmed, Wednesday are currently joint-third favourites to win promotion according to EFL sponsors SkyBet.
You can get odds of 11/2 for the Owls to go up. Leeds United and Norwich City are beside them in that respect.
Relegated Stoke City and West Brom are the early favourites on 11/4, with Brentford next up on 9/2.
