Glenn Loovens: "Sheffield Wednesday are ready for the Premier League"

GFX FACT HUDDERSFIELD V SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY

Huddersfield dominated possession in this Championship play-off semi-final first leg, with Isaiah Brown striking the bar, but their winless run against these opponents is now eight matches, meaning that they face a challenging test at Hillsborough in the return match on Wednesday night.

The Terriers, who finished the regular season in fifth place, bossed the entire 90 minutes at the John Smith's Stadium but were unable to find an elusive goal. This has to be the best atmosphere in 45 years and then we have to make sure we take this energy and transform it into energy on the grass.

The same publication reported last week that Middlesbrough chairman Steve Gibson is having second thoughts about appointing Steve Agnew on a full-time basis, after the Boro caretaker won one of his 10 games in temporary charge - culminating in the Teessiders' relegation.

Carlos Carvalhal's Wednesday suffered play-off heartbreak a year ago, beaten 1-0 by Hull City at Wembley, and will profit from that experience, however hard it was at the time.

Right-back Hunt said: "The hurt from a year ago is still inside us and we want to put that out of our minds".

The German said: "We will not play them off the park.We played Sheffield Wednesday and no-one should forget it".

"It might have been a little off day for us with the ball on Sunday but the clean sheet was very important and we are confident going back home playing in front of our fans. We would go down as legends".

Gary Hooper could add to Wednesday's attacking options this evening if he can shake off the hamstring injury that kept him out of the first leg.

Carlos Carvalhal's men will be hoping to go one better than last season's 1-0 loss against Hull City last season in a heartbreaking Wembley final.

"But as players, we know what we need to do. We don't have to manage the result or something, for me a good result against Wednesday is a win and nothing else".

Wagner has faced Wednesday three times since taking over as boss of the Terriers and has yet to see his side pick up a point or even score a goal.

Carvalhal set up his side to contain Huddersfield and ensure the tie was still alive by the time they played in front of their fans.

"It's similar because it's two small clubs, no-one thinks that these clubs will play in the first division".
