Massimo Luongo says he is ready to start more games for Sheffield Wednesday after starring for the club in their win over Wigan Athletic.
Luongo, who joined Wednesday from QPR in August, scored his first goal for his new club against Wigan.
The midfielder hopes he is starting to win over Owls manager Gary Monk.
"I am buzzing that I got on the scoresheet," he told The Yorkshire Post. "I have not been part of the team as much as I thought I would have been when I signed.
"It gives the manager a headache now for the next game and that is all I want to do. If he has to take me out of the squad, I can go in and say I believe I should start.
"All I want to do is give him a problem with the starting line-up. I am 27-years-old and I have been playing for a long time in the Championship and all I want to do is help Sheffield Wednesday go as far as we can.
"I knew coming into the team, especially signing on deadline day, that I would have to be patient. The team had already started the season and I am away with the international team a lot, which doesn't help.
"It’s a new team, new players and nobody really knows me. I haven't got a relationship with the players on the pitch that comes after years. You look at the way Barry (Bannan) and Fletch (Steven Fletcher) combine; they have been playing together for years.
"That will come, I just need to be around it more and the only way to do that is to keep performing well and hopefully keep winning."
