Stevie May’s second goal for Sheffield Wednesday came just at the right time in the 2-0 away win at Birmingham City.

Missed chances against Nottingham Forest and Bolton Wanderers had left the Owls without a goal in two and a half games.

Sheffield Wednesday: It's time for the Owls to go on a runThe recent win has propelled Wednesday back up to seventh place in the league table, just one point behind Charlton Athletic and Reading in fifth and sixth places respectively.

Stuart Gray’s side have got an interesting run of games ahead of them. In the league a home fixture against Reading is followed by a trip to Manchester City in the League Cup. The Owls then travel south to face a poor Cardiff City side before returning home to face Ipswich Town.

Of the next three league games, Gray’s side have no reason not to be picking up nine points. A good run of games takes the Owls into October and a trip up the M1 to face Leeds United.

May’s arrival at Sheffield 6 looks to be a promising one and there will be plenty of fans south of the border who are not yet familiar with his name. May and Atdhe Nuhiu have been knocking on the door with numerous efforts of late and a Reading team who have already conceded 10 goals this season (the most in the top 12) have every reason to be worried by the Wednesday front two. Reading themselves are in great form, winning their last three league games.

Ticket prices have been reduced for Reading’s visit and Saturday and on the back of the midweek win, a bumper crowd is expected at Hillsborough.

Morale seems to be very high at Wednesday and much of that has to go down to the way the gaffer has been handling the team. If results keep going Wednesday’s way, those that tipped them for relegation will be left to eat humble pie.
