Wildsmith to start cup clash

28 November 2015

Carlos Carvalhal has confirmed that Joe Wildsmith will start in goal for the Owls’ Capital One Cup trip to Stoke on Tuesday.

Wildsmith has played a key role in aiding Wednesday’s march to the quarter finals and will extend his cup run between the sticks at the Britannia Stadium.

Head coach Carvalhal said: “Joe will play against Stoke and I have every confidence in him as always.

“He has done very, very well this season and will be my goalkeeper on Tuesday.

Keiren Westwood felt his Achilles during the Blackburn game but he is OK and he will have one full week to recover completely.

“We will assess the rest of the players and then decide the squad for the game, where we want to do our supporters proud.

“Stoke will be the favourites as the Premier side but we will go there, we will do the best we can, and we want to get to the next round.

“You never know.”
