Stevie May enjoyed his taste of life in the big league and wants even more.

The Scottish said playing at the Etihad against Manchester City on Wednesday night was a big moment in his career.

And he is hoping the Owls will continue their strong start to the league campaign in order to ensure trips to the biggest stadiums in the country become a regular occurrence.

“Hopefully what we’ve done so far is just the start,” May said. “We need to kick on from this and hopefully get a bit more of a taste for it.

“It’s nice to be able to go to places like that.

“Coming down from Scotland, this is all new for me, a new stadium every week that I’ve never been to.

“I had a look and it would have been Kilmarnock away for me on Tuesday night rather than Manchester City if I’d not made the move to Wednesday in the summer.”

May says Wednesday must quickly put to one side their 7-0 defeat at the hands of City and is confident they can do so at Cardiff on Saturday.

He said: “It was a nothing-to-lose game for us so we went there without any pressure.

“Obviously we’d have liked to have not had the scoreline like that but in the first half there were a lot of positives to take.

“We just need to put it to one side.”

Saturday’s hosts Cardiff City look set to appoint former Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade as their new manager.

But it seems unlikely Slade will be in charge on Saturday as legal wrangling continues between City and Orient.
