Saturday's defeat against Q.P.R. meant that Wednesday have won just once in seven outings, which is worryingly the form of a side battling relegation.
There are no excuses - if we carry on how we are doing at the moment we'll be going back down to League 1.
Stats don't lie.
The current form guide, taken from the official Football League website and looking at our last six games, leaves us 22nd in the Championship and taking up the last of the relegation spots.
We've bagged just four points from those six games, one win, one draw and four defeats.
Even more worrying is that those matches were against teams that Wednesday would be expected to take more points from this season.
They're the more favourable teams in this division.
Derby County (L), Coventry City (W), Preston North End (L), Watford (L), Bristol City (D), Q.P.R. (L).
Say what you want about Preston and Q.P.R., they're decent teams but they're teams we should be looking at getting points off at home.
The excuses have come - we've played well but not got anything to show from it - we've had a long list of injuries - we've not got the funds to compete with the teams at the top.
We can play as well as we want for the rest of the season, but if we don't get the points, we'll be going down.
We can also moan about the wage bill, but then again so can teams such as Blackpool and Swansea who are both in and around the top six.
The injury and 'virus' excuses don't wash either, we got one of out better results (Bristol away) when we were down with numbers.
Things need to change - and fast.
There's nothing worse than going into the hectic Christmas schedule, with a relatively small squad, needing to win games to pull away from the bottom three.
The next few games don't make comfortable reading either.
Ipswich away on Sky, and we all know how badly we do on Sky, followed by the visit of West Brom.
It's probably too early to push the panic button just yet, but things are far from ideal down at S6 and people need to start realising that anything above the top three might just be a bit more realistic than a top half finish.
THe only thing we can take comfort from is that the Blades are doing just as badly, or at least they are doing until tonight...
