Wednesday's disappointing 1-0 defeat at Huddersfield Town on Monday continued a worrying trend for the Owls against their promotion rivals this season.
The Owls form against the current League One top-six leaves a lot to be desired, and will need to be improved if Alan Irvine is to guide his troops back into the Championship.
The slender loss at the Galpharm Stadium saw the Owls slide down to six in the league table at the start of the new year.
It left Wednesday with just the one victory in six matches against the five sides above them this season.
That win came against current leaders Brigthon & Hove Albion at Hillsborough at the start of the campaign - alhough Gus Poyet's side did leave S6 feeling hard done by.
Defeats against Southampton and Charlton Athletic, at home and away respectively, have followed, while a late Neil Mellor goal was required to rescue a point at home against Bournemouth.
The defeat against the Terriers yesterday was Wednesday's second agaisnt Town this season, with Lee Clark's men being comfortable 2-0 winners at Hillsborough in the reverse clash.
It's worrying for Alan Irvine and Wednesdayites alike - especially if the Owls miss out on automatic promotion and have to make do with a play-off spot.
The Owls still face tough return trips to Brighton and Southampton respectively, which will no doubt be their toughest remaining fixtures this season, while a trip to Bournemouth also lies in wait.
Charlton Athletic will also provide stiff opposition when they make the trip tup to South Yorkshire.
Of course, there's always room for improvement, and Irvine will be looking to improve his squad in this month's transfer window, but the Owls will need to start picking points up against their promotion rivals if they're to achieve their goal of promotion this season.
