Jos Luhukay said he could understand the boos from the Hillsborough crowd as Wednesday crumbled to a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Norwich.
The Owls boss said: “I understand the reaction of the fans because this was a bad game for us.
“In the first half I thought it was an even game and again we had a chance to score the first goal. Then Cammy saves the penalty and we could have built on that.
“But in the second half Norwich came at us, scored very quickly and three times.
“So I understand why the fans reacted like they did because we all feel this hurt. From being in the top six we are now in the lower part of the table.
“We have to find the way to get back to the form we showed that got us into the play-offs.”
He added: “We have the same players, the same coach, so we know we are much better than the form we are producing at the moment. We must be very quick to bring our best performances back.
“Sometimes it looks like we don’t have the stability to clear at moments when you can clear. At this level and in this league that’s not possible and our opponents profited from the mistakes that we made.”
