Wednesday boss Brian Laws was left pleased after the Owls recorded their fifth win on the bounce against a battling Coventry City side at Hillsborough on Saturday.
Goals from Marcus Tudgay and Steve Maclean give Wednesday victory over the Sky Blues and saw the Owls move to within just two points of the Championship play-off spots with two league matches remaining this term.
And Laws was left pleased at picking up the three points against Iain Dowie's men - despite not playing the fluent football which has seen Wednesday pick up impressive victories in recent weeks.
'It was a scrappy fight today, it wasn't fluent football by any stretch of the imagination and I have got to be honest, I have sympathy with Coventry,' Laws told the official SWFC site.
'We rode our luck today, Coventry hit the post twice when they probably should have scored but sometimes you need that luck. We will take it gladly while it is with us. While you are on a run like this you go into games more and more confident that you are going to win it.'
Laws revealed before the match that he took confidence from the job that Dowie did at Crystal Palace when he lead the Eagles to promotion in similar circumstances to what the Owls are enjoying at the moment.
And he left the match knowing that Dowie's men made victory a difficult task for his Owls side at the weekend.
He continued: 'Although they had a disappointing result last week, Iain Dowie certainly got them fired up to prove a point that they are nod as bad as the defeat against Preston last week suggested.
'They (Coventry) worked very hard, got in our faces and made it very difficult for us. The fact that we had to make so many changes early on didn't make help the fluency of the football.'
'But I think everyone will agree that it is not really the performance we are looking at now at this stage of the season; we are just trying to get the win and then the next win after that and see where it takes.'
