Sheffield Wednesday manager Gary Megson felt his side played some impressive football as they thrashed fellow strugglers Tranmere 4-0 at Hillsborough.
Tommy Miller scored twice while strikers Gary Madine and Neil Mellor chipped in with a goal apiece as the Owls recorded back-to-back home league wins for the first time in five months to move onto the magical 50-point mark.
Megson said: "There was some really good stuff I thought. It is a strange thing because the game is not over at 3-0 but everyone has an assumption it more or less is.
"Then you get a few players who stop doing what we had done to enable us to get into that position and we are trying to keep the ball with maybe only seven or eight players looking for it, so that's something we need to improve upon.
"Certainly though the goals we got, the clean sheet and most of all the effort, commitment and desire that we are going to need were all there to see. I don't think they had a shot until the last five minutes.
"I was also pleased for Neil Mellor who I thought played better than on Saturday against Colchester, even though then he got two goals and played quite well."
