After heading home the Owls’ first of the afternoon against the Bees and his 12th of the season, Forestieri thanked his fellow Owls and said:

“I want to say thank you to my team because they have helped me to get the goals.

“Now I have scored 12 and I hope for more but for me, it doesn’t matter who scores.

“Everyone is important, everyone is working hard for the team and that is the most important.

“Who scores the goals doesn’t matter, the important thing is the next game and that you get the three points.”



Wednesday remain undefeated in the Championship in 2016 and will take their impressive form to Preston next weekend.

“Everyone is happy because we win and stay in the play-offs and now we focus on Preston.
