Glenn Loovens: "Sheffield Wednesday are ready for the Premier League"

The Terriers face a make-or-break Championship play-off semi-final, second leg at Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday after a goalless first leg in West Yorkshire, with the victors set to face Reading at Wembley on May 29.

"Our fans are incredible, it will be sold out and they will play a very important role, but we must do our job of course".

The Terriers boss believes the prospect of extra-time would be "more of an advantage than a disadvantage" for a Huddersfield side that pride themselves on high fitness levels, while Wagner was quick to note the dreaded shoot-out scenario is not so daunting back in his homeland.

And their striker Elias Kachunga says the Premier League is bigger than the Bundesliga as he looks to draw on his previous promotion experience to take them back there. We have a final at Hillsborough, we will be ready. "It's only about timing to be there at the right moment". We will feel it from the stands on Sunday.

"The pressure has been on them since they have got in the play-offs".

It was all Huddersfield and Tommy Smith fired over before Wells had another chance when a loose ball fell kindly to him eight yards out but Westwood was out quickly to deflect it wide.

The Owls fielded a much-weakened line-up in their 2-1 defeat to fellow play-off hopefuls Fulham on the final day of the season to end a six-match winning run.

Fernando Forestieri was a peripheral figure on his return to the starting XI but their solid, if uninspiring, performance did allow Wednesday's hosts to record a 17th clean sheet of the campaign as goalkeeper Keiren Westwood produced two vital second-half saves to keep the game scoreless. We were a bit unlucky with some decisions from the referee or we were not clinical enough in front of the goal.

"They like to play with the ball and score goals, we have played them four times in the last two years so we know what to expect".

"The boss has a clear idea how to beat them". When we played against them they didn't have too many opportunities so I think we can control them, especially at home when we play our game. "We don't have to manage the result or something, for me a good result against Wednesday is a win and nothing else".

Carlos Carvalhal has continued his dominance over Wagner this season, with a 1-0 away win and 2-0 home win.
