Chris Maguire is aiming to play a part in helping Wednesday successfully negotiate the battle against the drop and maintain Championship status.
The 24-year-old striker has been limited to just two substitute league appearances for the Owls this season but is out to make an impact in the remaining nine games.
With a huge derby against Barnsley at Hillsborough next-up, Maguire is keen to show what he can do with all still to play for in the run-in.
He said: “There are nine left and as much as it’s been a disappointing season for me, it could end well. That would put me in good stead to kick on next season.
“Hopefully I’ll get a run of games. I think a lot of people would like to see what I can do and I’m enthusiastic about showing people what I can do.”
The ex-Portsmouth man has also featured four times in cup competition for Dave Jones’ side this term and believes he is ready for action if called upon.
“It’s been a long season for me,” Maguire said. “I didn’t expect to go this long and not play in the league. I’ve only made two league appearances and they’ve both come off the bench.
“I’ve been working hard in training and I’m hoping I can get that breakthrough.
“It’s tough but you have to keep going and push for a starting place because you never know when you might get an opportunity.”
