  • The defender made his return from suspension on Tuesday
  • Loovens warns Owls will have to be at their best v Reading

Captain Glenn Loovens has hailed the Owls’ performance at St Andrew’s yesterday evening.

Wednesday continued their fine start to the campaign with an impressive 2-0 victory over Birmingham.

Goals from Stevie May and Jeremy Helan sealed the win and Loovens has said the three points were a just reward for another battling display on the road.

“It was a battle,” he said. “Especially the first half, but we kept playing as a team and defending as a team.

“In the second half we had a little bit more space, kept the ball better and hit them twice to take the three points home.

“Now we have to build on this and keep our foot on the pedal because we have another big game on Saturday.”

Loovens, who returned to the side following his one-match suspension on Saturday, was also delighted to play his part in Wednesday keeping their sixth clean sheet in nine games this season.

He added: “We’ve kept six clean sheets and that is not just down to the defence but everyone in the team. We are working well together and I’m sure we can continue on like this.

“Reading are a top side, so we will need to be at our best.”
