Wednesday boss Brian Laws insists he must pick his team up and 'get on with it' after Wednesday suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at home to lowly Hull City to get 2007 off on the wrong foot at Hillsborough on Monday.
A brace from the Owls bogey-man Nick Barmby ensured Phil Brown increased his chances of filling the manager's vacancy on a full-time basis, despite a neat Deon Burton solo effort giving Wednesday hope in the second-half.
But Laws told the official Owls site he could take positives from an improved second-half performance from his men in blue and white as they look t get back to winning ways with a a cup upset against Manchester City in the FA Cup 3d round next Sunday.
'We raised the tempo and it was one-way traffic but we couldn't finish them off. We created chances we could have done better with but couldn't get the ball in the back of the net.' he said.
He added: 'We have to pick ourselves up and get on with it. We have a fortnight to recover for the next league goal but first we have to prepare for a great Cup game next week.'
But Laws was left to rue the controversial goals from the Owls achilles-heel, Nick Barmby.
He told BBC Sport: 'I'm a little bit confused. If a player is offside, he's offside and he was a good 10 yards. Their player played it through, all right it's hit one of our players 10 yards further on, but I'm mystified as to why that was allowed. That's something I'll have a little chat about with the referee to see if he can clarify that with me.
'But the second one, I thought there was a possibility about handball, but I've heard maybe not, that it was more of a chest.'
