Carlos Carvalhal believes the competition in the Championship is stronger this season with more teams equipped to fight for a top six position.
The top of the Sky Bet Championship is finely balanced and Tuesday’s round of fixtures will certainly see teams change positions in the table.
Wednesday will be aiming to jump back into a coveted top six berth and Carlos explained:
“You must progress and you must win points. We are not far away from third, but at the same time there are teams close behind us with big value also.
“It’s simple, the more points you achieve, the better position you will be. It’s why I don’t think too much ahead.
“I must just focus on the next game - that is the most important. Take each game as it comes, try to win as many points as possible and see where you can go.
“There are teams more ready to fight for the play-offs for sure, comparing with last season.”
Tuesday’s opposition Barnsley represent another tough test for Wednesday on home soil and the head coach added:
“The competition is better this season, it is improving. The quality of the players, quality of the coaches, the way that the teams are playing.
“I think this year, the competition is more hard for sure.”
