Glenn Loovens says it feels like things are finally beginning to click for Sheffield Wednesday’s new-look squad.

The Owls head to Brentford today without a defeat in three and on the back of two successive wins.

And Loovens says after a summer of great change, Wednesday are heading into autumn with plenty of confidence.

“A lot has happened of course,” Loovens said. “A lot of new players came in and it takes a bit of time.

“We’re trying to find the right balance at the moment.

“The manager changes it quite a lot with players coming in and out. But everyone is taking on their role quite well.”

Loovens feels things are also beginning to come together from him personally after the ankle injury which ended his last campaign early, plus the troubled recovery.

The 31-year-old confessed he was delighted to complete a full fortnight’s training for the first time in months.

He said: “The problem happened the first pre-season game and it lingered on quite a while so I said I need to take a bit of time off to get it sorted.

“I’ve been training the last two weeks now and I don’t think that has happened for the last seven months for me. That says it all.

“I got 90 minutes again at Newcastle. I’m feeling really good and getting stronger with every training session. I’m feeling confident.”
