Massimo Luongo says he will be going all out to stake a claim for a starting spot at his new club Sheffield Wednesday.
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."
