Captain Glenn Loovens says the current Owls squad is the strongest he has known during his time at Hillsborough.
Now into his third season with Wednesday, the 32-year-old has high hopes for the season and the first step is to keep the current unbeaten run going.
Discussing the strength of the squad, he said: “I’ve been here for three seasons now and this is the strongest squad I’ve been involved in here.
“I think we can have a good go this season. Touch wood we can steer clear of injuries and if that happens I think we can have a really good go at it.
“Because of the quality of players and size of the squad, everybody can play in the first XI and that’s what you need if you want to be successful.”
Wednesday head into tomorrow’s South Yorkshire derby against Rotherham in fine form.
After drawing consecutive games with Hull and QPR, Loovens expects Friday’s televised clash to be every bit as difficult, and added:
“This is a big local derby and it will be tough but if you want to have a go at the Championship, you need to win these games.
“We’ve just had two really tough games against two teams that were in the Premier League last season and this one will be equally as difficult.”
