Wednesday boss Brian Laws was left delighted with his troops after they came out 3-1 winners against Leicester City at the weekend, but insists the Owls aren't safe just yet.
The three points from the crucial Walkers Stadium clash saw Wednesday leapfrog the Foxes and Southampton going in to the last game of the season, and although they'll now be hot favourites to avoid the drop, the Owls gaffer insists the job is only half done.
'The first thing I said to the players was: 'Don't think we have done it, that's half the job.' We are not taking our eye off the ball at any stage,' Laws told the official Owls' website.
'We trained all week on how we were going to play and now we have to prepare them again for another massive game against Norwich.
'If anybody tells me football is not stressful I think I will have to knock them out. What a game! I said to the players at full time: 'I don't know if I could take much more of that.' It was incredible. We had left ourselves in a position where we needed to win two games to get out of this and this is only half the job, but what a job we have done!'
The Owls have made a bad habit of conceding early goals in recent clashes against Plymouth Arglye and Blackpool, but showed the spirit to come from behind and level, with the same happening on Saturday.
And Laws was full of praise for another fightback from his troops on Saturday.
He continued: 'The start did not surprise me, we have conceded too many early goals but we are one of the most consistent teams in replying to going a goal down. What a way to reply too, it was a great finish by Slusarski for the equaliser.'
