Glenn Loovens explains why Sheffield Wednesday can still be confident for Cardiff clash despite recent form

The Owls have not won any of their last four games in the Championship.

Sheffield Wednesday captain Glenn Loovens believes that the Owls can still go into their game with Cardiff City on Saturday with plenty of confidence despite their recent poor form, the Sheffield Star reports.

Carlos Carvalhal's men are sixth in the Championship and are in the driving seat to secure the final play-off spot in the table, but they have failed to win any of their last four games, and this weekend face the only side that can stop them securing a top six spot.

But despite the importance of the result from the game at Hillsborough, Loovens has insisted that there have been enough positives from their run of one defeat and three draws to give them the belief they need to do what they need to do against the Bluebirds.

"We should feel confident," he told the Star.

"I know the results have not gone so well lately but our style of football has been good.

"We have got to be positive and hopefully we will pick up a positive result."

It is safe to say that the 4-1 defeat to Bristol City that kick-started the run can be discarded as something of an anomaly based on how both sides have performed this season. 

And with two of the draws coming against two sides that have spent the majority of the season in the top half and have been fighting for the play-off spots, while the other came in a highly frustrating game against MK Dons where Wednesday hit the woodwork on several occasions, it is perhaps fair to say that they have deserved more in at least one of the fixtures.
