Sheffield Wednesday winger Ross Wallace says he and his team mates are confident they can get a positive result when the Owls travel to Huddersfield Town on Sunday.

David Wagner's Terriers began the weekend on top of the Championship but have since slipped to third behind Newcastle United and Norwich City after respective wins against Blackburn Rovers and Barnsley.

It's been an impressive start to the campaign for Town, but though Wednesday went into the international break off the back of a defeat to Brighton, it's four wins from six for Carlos Carvalhal's side in the form table.

And Wallace says that while they know it's going to be a difficult game, the long period of working together as a squad in training has given Wednesday a lift.

"It's a good game for the players to go into," he said. "We know it's going to be a tough match, every away game in this league's tough. But we're confident, we've had a good week's training and work on our stuff, working on our own play so we've got a lot of time to work on team shape and how we are going to play against them."

Wallace has yet to score this season, though he has come close on occasion. Wednesday have been guilty of not scoring enough goal, to reflect their dominance in some games and the Scot says that is what they've been working on.

"I think everyone could chip in," he said. "We've had shots, the keeper has been making great saves, we've been getting into the right areas to score it's just needing that ruthlessness in front of goal. That's where we have come up short a little bit. We have been getting in good areas, playing good stuff up to the box, geetting in behind teams, it's just that final ball maybe.

"That's what we've been working on, a lot of finishing a lot of crosses, just trying to step up really and hopefully that final ball will be better."
