Wednesday Manager Brian Laws looks at the positive side as compared to other season`s , the Owls have had a decent start.
"That (after the 10-game period) is when you start looking at the table and it gives you a guide on where you are, where you need to be and what you need to do to progress," he says.
"The coming week is going to be a big one for us. We want to be in that top 10. If we can be in the top 10 come the international break, it will be brilliant."
On the subject of Wednesday being higher than United, he adds: "I think the players should look on that as a positive; the supporters will.
"It gives us a bit of an edge. We are above them yet they have heavily invested."
He added: "We want to be above them when it's the derby game. That's something we can achieve. The performances in the next three games are going to be a major factor in it."
When asked about Mark Beevers and Franny Jeffers chances of starting against Charlton at The Valley , The Owls boss replied..
"We'll monitor Mark and decide whether to put him straight back in; we also need to bear in mind that we have three games coming up in a short space of time," he said.
"We'll see whether it's worth the risk (tomorrow) or not; certainly he's a player we want back in the side as quickly as possible."
Defensively we have been okay, apart from the Reading game," Laws reckoned.
"That's given me that time and thought on whether we force him back into the side or leave it a bit longer."
Though Franny Jeffers played 75 mins and scored a goal in the reserves this week he is more than likely to be on the bench tomorrow " He got 75 minutes under his belt and got himself a goal," said Laws.
"He has looked pretty sharp. I'm sure he's chomping at the bit, but we have to monitor him very carefully. We want him back for good; he's a player you want in your side.
"It gives me a lot of food for thought; that's good because it means I have options.
"He's very close. We're very pleased with his progress."
