Although Bolton have struggled for goals in recent months, Luhukay expects a stern test from Phil Parkinsons side.
“Bolton have their own structure, way to play and philosophy,” said Luhukay, whose team have gone six matches without victory. “We know they are a physical, strong team with a lot of experience.
It is a nice sentiment from Hector and there is no doubt that the players could be doing better. But the job of a manager is to make sure a side is picked and a squad is built that will not make those errors.
“They are a team who fight hard for 90 minutes to get a good result. They have also not been effective in offensive positions but they have quality.
Hector insists that it is the players’ fault that the club are where they are and that sloppy individual errors need to be cut out of their game for them to succeed.
Luhukay, who has conceded expectation levels were “maybe too high” heading into the 2018/19 season, has rejected claims that the Bolton fixture represents the biggest match of his Owls reign.
The Dutchman, appointed Wednesday boss last January, said: “We play a normal game in the Championship and we will try to do everything we can to win the game.
A 2-1 defeat to Derby County at the weekend means the Owls have now lost five of their last six matches and are edging closer and closer to the relegation zone.
“There are periods and moments in the season that are very positive and you have periods and moments that are not so positive so we must live with that.”
The Scotland striker, who continues to manage the knee issue which sidelined him last season, sat out the weekend defeat to Derby after returning late from international duty.
Dutch defender Joost van Aken will continue his comeback by turning out for the Under-23s at Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night. Sam Winnall (hamstring), Kieran Lee (knee) and Gary Hooper (groin) remain on the sidelines.
They currently sit on 20 points, just three more than Bolton Wanderers, who currently occupy the final spot in the relegation zone.
