Luongo left QPR and London in the transfer window to join Wednesday in south Yorkshire.

The Socceroo, who spent four years with the R's, has yet to start a game for the Owls but the 26-year-old has come off the bench in three Championship fixtures so far.

Luongo is battling the likes of Sam Hutchinson, Kieran Lee, Barry Bannan and Adam Reach for a starting midield berth, but is determined to prove his worth to manager Lee Bullen.

"It’s a big challenge and I haven’t had that for a long time," he admitted to The Sheffield Star.

"The depth is incredible and I think initially it’s a bit frustrating, but there are 46 games in the league season, you’re going to be used.

"It’s up to myself, when I do get used, to make sure I’m prepared and ready and I give it my all and hopefully continue and keep my spot.

"There won’t be many opportunities. We’ve got such a big squad and there are only so many positions on the bench. These games are so important."
