The former Crewe midfielder was as helpless as anyone else when David Jones' stoppage-time free kick flew into Mark Crossley's net after Wednesday were outstanding in defeat at Pride Park.
But Lunt is keeping his fingers crossed that The Owls will be the beneficiary of a late winner later on in the campaign.
"What goes around comes around and hopefully we get a last-gasp winner later in the season," he told Footymad. "That's why Derby are joint top of the league because they play right until the end– they have had a bit of luck and scored late on but we have been unfortunate but I am sure the same will happen to us and the sooner the better.
"The team are starting to believe in ourselves more now, we believe we can go anywhere and win. Our recent away record speaks for itself so we will keep believing and keep doing our best and hopefully our best will be good enough."
Lunt is currently on top form and the Rochdale product says he has to keep it that way or the likes of Yoann Folly and Burton O'Brien could take his place.
He added: "I think we are playing well as a team and it's not about individuals. Football is a game about taking chances and when you get one you have to take it and hopefully I have done that recently.
"But I have to keep playing well to keep my place in the team because we have a really good squad here and it's hard to keep your place but if the team keeps playing as it currently is then we will all be heading in the right direction."
