For the second successive time in just under a month, the Dutchman enters into a South Yorkshire derby under heavy pressure – in a game where a bad result could have significant ramifications for his 11-month tenure.
Luhukay said: “Now we have a home game and we must try to get our supporters behind us and beat Rotherham.
“We showed that fight three weeks ago against Sheffield United. We were also in a difficult situation and the team gave everything to get a good result and in the end, we got a draw.
“It will be a game with a lot of expectation, emotion and passion. We must show passion. When you have that, you always have a chance to win.”
The Owls chief, whose side have won just once in their past eight outings and who went down 4-2 at Blackburn Rovers last weekend, added: “We are inconsistent and that is very frustrating.
“We must try to improve internally and in the training sessions do it better, so that we can have a better result than what we got against Blackburn.”
