MIGUEL Llera believes that scoring should be only a sideline for a centre-half such as himself.

But that does not stop the Owls’ loan centre half from targeting his first goal of the season and hopefully more after that.

Wednesday fans may have thought that he could be a likely scorer from set pieces, judging by the way he got in a powerful header that hit the bar when he played for Brentford at Hillsborough.

But the Spaniard has not scored since a 1-1 draw for Charlton against Tranmere in March - one of only two he netted last season.

Six goals from 38 games in total for the London club is, however, a respectable tally for a centre-half.

“Hopefully I will score from a free-kick or with a header,” he said.

“But I knew when I arrived at the club that we have wonderful players up front.

“The target of me and the back four is a clean sheet.

“In my 14 games for Brentford we kept seven clean sheets- and now we have got one [on his debut last Saturday against Leyton Orient]. Hopefully we will get more.”

The defender believes that Wednesday have a stronger squad than the Bees and are capable of finishing in the top two. “Maybe we can be one of the two best clubs in League One,” he says.

“Maybe the club did not start well this season and maybe it is for this reason that we are not at the top.

“Now we are on course, and against Leyton Orient it was a very important win.”

Llera, who is cup-tied for Saturday’s game against Aldershot, has now seen from both sides of the fence how ‘lesser’ clubs visit Hillsborough and are determined to raise their game, now he has played there for Brentford and for the Owls against Orient:

“All the teams who play Sheffield Wednesday give 200 per cent. There are no easy games for Wednesday,” he said.

“We know for that reason that we must play 200 per cent.”
