Scoring and taking

1 January 2016

Carlos Carvalhal hinted towards an exciting encounter in the capital as the Owls welcome 2016 with a Championship clash at Fulham.

The Cottagers are the most converse outfit in the division, with status as the highest scorers throughout – but just one side has conceded more goals at the other end.

With Wednesday bettered only by three teams in the final third, Craven Cottage could serve as the place to be in the second tier on Saturday.

Carvalhal said: “Fulham can score goals and take goals, this is clear, so we know what we must do to win this game.

“We score a lot of goals also, so we must build on that positive and correct our accidents.

“We have a fantastic dynamic, of this I am sure, and now we must take that dynamic into the environment at Fulham.

“I also know we will be backed by thousands of our massive fans in London and at this expensive time of the year, we say thank you to them all and we want those points for you and everyone at Sheffield Wednesday.”

The Owls’ head coach would not be drawn on the prospects of recovering players featuring in West London.

Wednesday have sustained a number of injuries over the hectic festive period and Carvalhal added:

“I do not know the full squad of players who will be available to play at this moment but this is normal, we have to give everyone every chance.

“We have some injuries right now, mainly muscles, which is to be expected at this time of the season.

“But we would rather play games, we do not want to break.

“What I know is that no matter the team I play, this will be a good team, a confident team, and a team that can win this football match.”
