Sheffield Wednesday captain Glenn Loovens claims helping Owls get promoted would mean the world to him

Carlos Carvalhal's men are currently sixth in the Championship with five games to go.

Glenn Loovens has claimed that helping Sheffield Wednesday get promoted to the Premier League would mean the world to him, according to the Sheffield Star.

The Owls go into the final five games of the season in sixth place, and while their slim automatic-promotion hopes were dealt a huge blow in their last game as they fell to a 4-1 defeat to Bristol City, they are in with a very good chance of securing a play-off spot.

And the 32-year-old admitted that he is dreaming of leading the club back to the top flight.

"It would mean the world to me to help the club get promoted. This is a big club. We have got some great fans who deserve the best. This club should be playing at the highest level and hopefully we can realise that for all of them," he told the Star.

"There is still a long way to go but it is good to have dreams. We are so close so let's go all the way."

With the Dutchman heading towards the twilight of his career, it could be argued that this may be his last opportunity to help a side secure promotion and then be a part of the subsequent Premier League campaign. 

And while Wednesday were well beaten by the Robins in their most recent fixture, they still boast a comfortable cushion to the chasing pack and have put in enough good performances this season to believe that the defeat was just a blip.

And with their next opponents, Ipswich, being one of the sides that are still trying to break into a coveted top six spot, they will have the perfect opportunity to get their promotion charge back on track and send a message out to those also trying to get to Wembley.
