The 36-year-old forward opted to swap a League One relegation battle with parent club Hartlepool for one in the Championship at the end of last month and, although yet to score for the Owls, has made five appearances already since arriving at Hillsborough.

"There are three games left and we've just got to go until the end and see where we can get to and then we'll take it from there," Howard told the club's official website.

"It's so tight and everybody is beating everybody, but with the form we've been in of late, and with the crowd fully behind us, I'm sure we'll be ok."

Wednesday, who are three points above the drop zone, could take a giant leap towards safety with victory over Ipswich on Saturday.

Howard added: "We've played well over the last five or six games, obviously we had the one blip against Leeds, but we've had some cracking results of late."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
