Wednesday skipper Martin Taylor has told swfc.co.uk of his desire to get back into the starting XI.
The experienced stopper has struggled to hold down a regular starting shirt since his arrival at Hillsborough from Watford.
But Taylor, who has bags full of Premier League and Championship experience, knows the only way to do that is by working hard on the training ground and producing the goods on the pitch.
He said: “It hasn’t gone as well as I would have hoped when I first arrived but on the other hand I am still enjoying being at the club.
“As a professional footballer you want to be in the team every Saturday and play football. That’s not happening at the moment but I know that all I need to do is give 100 per cent every day and show the manager that I am both physically and mentally ready to play.
“I’ve been in this situation before and I know that you have to get out of it and the only way to do that is to firstly perform in training and then perform on the pitch.”
Wednesday face a tough test this weekend against a Forest side that sit in mid-table and Taylor continued:
“We go out on the pitch always aiming to give 100 per cent and there’s only one way for us to correct mistakes we have been making and that’s to go out and do the business.
“You want to look at your goals against tally and keep it as low as possible and we have been working very, very hard on that in training.
“We will learn from these experiences and grow as a team I have no doubt of that. I’m sure we will improve as the season goes on.”
