Jos Luhukay has called on his Wednesday players to show more belief and take more responsibility on the pitch after the 2-2 draw with Stoke.
Having seen Wednesday come back from two goals down early on to get a point, Luhukay said it felt like a win but added that we showed Stoke far too much respect during that opening period and delivered a strong message to the squad.
The Owls boss, who acknowledged that Stoke had more chances to score a third goal, said: “As a coach I am not happy. We can do a lot of things better. In the first 25 minutees we were not on the field … when the ref blows the whistle at the start of the game you must have 100 per cent in belief in what you are doing.
“I see the team every day and they can do more. They must believe in themselves and in each other.”
Luhukay said they have also discussed not relying so much on Barry Bannan during games but added: “Today we were looking too much to Barry again. We must look elsewhere as well.”
