SHEFFIELD Wednesday boss Jos Luhukay admits his side are suffering a crisis of confidence going into Saturday’s clash with Wanderers.

Beaten 2-1 at home by Ipswich Town on Tuesday night, the Owls risk being sucked right into the relegation battle if their poor form continues.

Wednesday are currently two points ahead of Wanderers, who have already beaten them twice this season, and on a run of five successive defeats.

“I think over 90 minutes we have a team that has no belief in themselves,” said Luhukay after his team’s defeat at Hillsborough.

“They don’t have the confidence to play offensive and create chances and over the 90 minutes I think we only had three chances and scored from one of them.

“It was not enough to get a result at the end, Ipswich also had three chances and scored twice. It was a fantastic free-kick the second goal.

“When you don’t get results, lose two days ago and have two days to forget that, we had a new chance at home with home fans, you think you will win, but we didn’t have the confidence to do that.

“When you win it changes the situation. In this period we are in you must win games to get belief back. This team can play better, we have seen that but the results mean they lose belief to win the game.”
