Big striker Atdhe Nuhiu is adamant Sheffield Wednesday remain a work in progress despite their encouraging start to the 2014/15 season.

Nuhiu made the admission after the Owls’ 1-0 triumph at Burnley in the Capital One Cup, a result which extended their unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions.

The 25-year-old, who has notched four goals in six appearances, said: “We are winning but we are a learning team. We are working hard and you can see the improvement.

“We know what we can do and every day on the pitch we are trying to get better and the manager wants us to get better.

“We are going to lose games; this is what football is. But the most important thing is how you react and improve. Our improvement at the moment is fantastic and we have to keep going like this and look upwards. At the end of the season, we will see where it takes us.”

Of his goal-scoring exploits, the former Austrian Under-21 international added: “It’s still the beginning of the season. I hope there’s more to come.”

Table-topping Forest will be cheered on by just over 2,000 fans at Hillsborough on Saturday.

“It is going to be a special game for us,” acknowledged Nuhiu. “I hope a lot of supporters from our side come to the stadium. We want the stadium to be full. I hope the atmosphere is going to be great. We don’t fear anyone.”
