Striker Stevie May is convinced Sheffield Wednesday are a match for any team in the Championship as they gear up for tonight’s trip to Birmingham City.

The Owls have lost just one of their opening eight matches in all competitions, conceding a miserly four goals.

Stuart Gray’s troops lie in 12th position and May says the belief in the squad is growing that they possess the quality to beat anyone in the second tier of English football.

The Scotland Under-21 international told The Star: “We’ve started unbelievably well in terms of our performances but maybe aren’t where we feel we deserve to be in the table.

“With a little bit more luck, we could be higher up but it’s been a solid start. It will be tough at Birmingham but we have got high expectations. We want to get the three points. If we are on our game, I think we are a match for anyone.”

The diminutive forward conceded the Owls dropped two points at Bolton Wanderers last weekend.

“We did a lot of things right but we weren’t clinical enough,” said May. “It’s another away point which should not be under-estimated and we are still unbeaten away from home so we can take that into the Birmingham game.

“We’ve got a fighting spirit and the morale is high in the team. We are not conceding many goals, which is half of the battle. If we take a few more of our chances, we will be okay.”

May has bagged one goal in six appearances for Wednesday since arriving from St Johnstone in an £800,000 deal last month.

He said: “As a striker, you want to nick a couple of goals and with that comes confidence.

“When one comes, they can be like London buses, as the saying goes, but it’s more important as a team that we keep picking up points.

“I’ve not had too many clear-cut chances but I’m enjoying my football.”
