A hard competition

5 March 2016

Carlos Carvalhal insists the Owls will pick themselves up and dust themselves down following their 1-0 defeat to Rotherham.

Matt Derbyshire scored the winning goal in the first half and Wednesday couldn’t break the Millers down despite having most of the ball in the second half.

Carvalhal said: “I am disappointed with the result but I am proud of my players.

“They fight right until the end but the reason we lose is because we didn’t put the ball in the net.

“We were very strong in the second half but we did not get the goal and this is disappointing.

“It’s not just us, this is a hard competition in the Championship, and teams are difficult to beat.

“Other teams not just us will lose games against teams they are expected to beat.”

Carvalhal would not be drawn on the controversy following Wednesday’s first half disallowed goal.

Michael Turner flicked home an Aiden McGeady shot that was ruled out by the officials for offside.

The head coach added: “I do not like to talk about the referees.

“I love football and I want to focus on that.

“The last four games I have been talking about things other than the football and I am a coach, I want to get back to talking about the football.”
