Wednesday boss Brian Laws revealed his delight at his sides performance in the 3-2 win over Leeds United on Saturday - but admitted it shouldn't have been so close.
The Owls raced in to a 3-0 lead thanks to goals from Marcus Tudgay, Chris Brunt and a second-half Jermaine Johnson strike - but the 5,000 travelling wednesdayites had to bite their nails late on after two Leeds goals in the last two minutes.
'It should have been all over really, we were looking comfortable at 3-0, even with ten men,' Laws told the official SWFC site.
'I couldn't see them scoring a goal but then we have given them an OG and Lee Bullen is obviously gutted because we wanted a clean sheet today. They were dead and buried but goals change games and that goal gave them a lift and it needed some solid defending and a little bit of luck to save it because with ten men we were always going to sit a bit deep and soak up pressure.'
Wednesday are one of the most exciting teas to watch in the divison at the moment - with their last three matches ending up as five-goal thrillers - and the Owls gaffer revealed the team should carry a health warning.
He continued: 'In that last ten minutes, if you had a heart rate monitor on me it would have been going through the roof because in those situations it is on the toss of a coin what could happen. But I think it would have been an absolute travesty for us to concede another goal because I thought we were the best team.'
And Laws reserved all credit for the players on the pitch after describing the performace as the Owls 'at their best'.
'Our supporters were absolutely lapping it up, they were loving it and rightly so. It's a local derby, a damned exciting one at that and one I have been thoroughly looking forward to. That was us performing to the best of our ability and getting the result so credit is due to the players.' he added.
