Ross Wallace is desperate for an opportunity to fire Sheffield Wednesday into the play-off final after a frustrating period on the sidelines.
The experienced Scottish winger hasn't pulled on an Owls shirt since being sent off in the 0-0 draw with MK Dons at Hillsborough on April 19 and has admitted that he's not much of a spectator.
Now the 30 year old with play-off pedigree is itching to get back onto the pitch for Friday's clash with Brighton.
"It has been hard for me in these three games sitting and watching it but the lads have done absolutely fantastic to get to this stage and we are looking forward to it," he said.
Wallace added: "Everything has been exactly the same this week. It has been the same build up and prepared in the same way. We know what Brighton are about so I can't see them making too many changes. They have got players who can hurt you so we have to be careful. We are confident and want to get the fans behind us."
Wallace isn't the only one who has had a break with the majority of the team sitting out last week's defeat to Wolves. Head coach Carlos Carvalhal also rotated players throughout the campaign, meaning everyone is fit and ready for action.
"The manager has chopped and changed the team all season," Wallace said. "It's not something new to us as the players. He did it more so at the start of the season. We have had a settled team in the last few months."
