Sheffield Wednesday are equipped to bounce straight back to the npower Championship, according to summer signing Paul Heffernan.

The former Doncaster striker, one of eight new players drafted in by manager Alan Irvine since the Owls were relegated, is confident Wednesday will be ready to launch a promotion challenge.

Heffernan told the club's official website: "The squad we have here has experience, a lot of the lads have played at a higher level and hopefully that will stand us in good stead for the rest of the season. We have the players capable of getting promotion."

He added: "The squad is looking very strong and there's a lot of competition for places wherever you look.

"So it's up to us to go out there and pick up points wherever we can, but it's a long, tough season ahead."
