What a difference a year makes.

This time 12 months ago the Owls embarked on a Championship season that saw them kick-off without a victory in their first 17 matches. Fast forward to this season and Stuart Gray and his team have managed to match that in just one game.

With Dave Jones in charge last season, the Owls had arguably a tougher game in facing QPR, a side relegated from the Premier League, at Loftus Road and went down 2-1 despite leading through Atdhe Nuhiu on the opening day of the campaign.

That defeat set the ball rolling for an agonising first few months, however, and a run of matches without a win that ultimately saw Jones relieved of his duties and replaced by Gray. Wednesday didn't get their first win on the board until early November, and in emphatic fashion with a 5-2 win over Reading. Owls fans didn't have to wait as long this time.

It may still be very early days in the season but the win at the Amex Stadium already gets that weight off the players' shoulders. Most were at the club last season when the unwanted run took place and they will have be keen to avoid a repeat. Job done.

The Owls now have a run of three matches at Hillsborough, one in the League Cup and two in the Championship, and will hope to secure the points that will leave a much brighter feeling amongst fan and players from the one felt 12 months ago.
