Giles Coke insists that the best is yet to come from him and Wednesday.

The midfield player is also targeting the same kind of renaissance that he experienced last season.

He returned to the team with a shock recall at Hull in January, contributed to a brilliant 3-1 win and never looked back.

With almost two years left on his new Hillsborough contract, the 27-year-old is convinced that both he and the club can make big strides despite the slow start to the season.

“I’m still learning. I really think I can kick on again,” he said, seeing “no reason” why the team cannot climb the table again and believing a challenge for the play-offs still cannot be ruled out.

“Hopefully we can put in some good performances,” he added.

“There are teams in this league who have lost more games than us. So we’re not panicking. We’re still confident that when the win comes, we’re going to start picking up more wins.

“I’ve been here four years. I’ve loved it. There was a spell where I went out on loan and was out of the picture. But I’ve come back, I never wanted to leave. I don’t think any player who ever plays for Sheffield Wednesday wants to leave this club, unless you’re going to the Premier League, obviously.

“This club is amazing - a great fan base, and a club that really should be in the Premier League.

“I’m really delighted to be here. The more games you play, you mature and learn more. I’m still learning now. I’m really enjoying myself, and glad to be back in the picture.”
