Jos Luhukay said he understood the frustration of the fans – for the second time inside four days – as Wednesday slumped to defeat at Blackburn.
The under-pressure Owls boss made the same comment when the team was booed off at half time against Bolton in midweek and, with just four points from the last 24 after losing 4-2 at Ewood Park, many of the sizeable Wednesday following in the crowd called for him to be sacked, with Luhukay reflecting: “I understand the frustrations of the fans, I understand the irritations because we must be better.
“We now have one week to get together and work as a team before a big derby game against Rotherham next Saturday.”
Luhukay said that Wednesday just couldn’t handle the Blackburn strike pair of Bradley Dack and hat-trick man Danny Graham and criticised the defending after twice getting back into the game.
He added: “The expectations in this club are high. We are now not living in the past and fans maybe live in the past from the success, but last season it was also a direction where it was not good enough.
“That’s why I came in January and now we sit in the same situation so we must fight against that and we must believe that we can take us to a better period.
“Now we are in the worst period, I know that. But in my character, it is not that I will give up, but only solve why we didn’t get a good result, or why the fans aren’t happy with this.”
