Although it will go down in history as just a consolation, Gary Hooper’s late strike at Stadium:mk is an important moment, says Carlos Carvalhal.
The hitman came off the bench for the second half and gave the Owls a glimmer of hope by scoring his first goal for the club.
Having now opened his account, the head coach said it was important for the 27-year-old.
“It’s important to the motivation and to confidence,” he explained.
“He is a goalscorer and up until this moment he hasn’t had too many chances.
“On Tuesday, he had a chance and scored and that is good for the confidence.
“That is very important to him, of course.”
