Wednesday have picked up 15 points from a possible 21 since Alan Irvine took charge, something which has lifted us out of the bottom three and, hopefully, en route to safety this season.
At times it hasn't been pretty, at times it's been ugly, desperate and with a pinch of good fortune thrown in there - how we'd have loved some of that earlier in the season.
But, following our victory over Blackpool last night, performances should mean very little compared to the prize that's at stake - staying in the Championship.
We wouldn't have deemed it as a success story at the start of the season, but it'll be Alan Irvine's own success story and one that will hopefully lead into another next season, on a different level.
A number of Wednesdayites were moaning at the performance at a cold Hillsborough against the Seasiders.
I'll be honest and say that, a few times in the first half at least, I was one of them.
It was more frustration than anything else, the fact we weren't extending our advantage against a side there for the taking.
But the three points are all that matter, staying in the league is the priority.
I'd take dull, drab, boring 1-0 victories all day long if it meant us achieving our current aim of staying in the Championship.
Hopefully other Wednesdayites will take that stance too, until the end of the season at least, and not expect any Arsenal-style play at S6.
When Irvine first came to take charge of the club he expressed his love of watching the 'beautiful game', teams such as Arsenal and Barcelona.
And although not expecting the Owls to play like that anytime soon, or in my lifetime in fact (we can but hope), it's something that Irvine probably won't even be considering this season.
In an ideal world, maybe.
Irvine himself came out and said that he'll just be looking to win games and fight tooth and nail to do that, and isn't really interested in how we do it.
Points win prizes for Wednesday this season, not the way that we get them.
No doubt, the Owls boss will try to up the quality in the style of football should Wednesday remain in the Championship.
But until then, we should just be happy that he's doing a superb job of turning round a team that looked destined for League 1 only two months ago.
UP THE OWLS!
