“I see the team is growing in confidence, we are working on that and we must try to win our home game on Saturday.”

Glenn Loovens is expected to be back in the squad for tomorrow’s visit of Steve Cotterill’s side who are just one point outside the Championship’s relegation zone.

The Owls skipper was rested in midweek but should be fit to face Birmingham.

Marco Matias, too, missed out at Middlesbrough with a thigh strain but the Portuguese forward could be in the 18 for a game which could see the Owls move up to 14th in the table if results go their way.
