In a very good moment

9 May 2016

From the outset, Carlos Carvalhal has said the Owls are underdogs in the Sky Bet Championship to mount a promotion challenge and secure a play-off berth.

But with a number of key factors working in tandem to make the club strong on and off the pitch including, hard work, team spirit, togetherness, quality of players and support, Wednesday will head into the play-offs in good shape.

The Owls face Brighton in the play-off semi final first leg on Friday. Both league meetings finished 0-0 but Carlos believes his side now are in a better moment and said:

“We have given some rest to the players and have done specific work with the players that have been playing often.

“Now, we will prepare for the game very well and we know we have a difficult opponent. We played before with them and we draw the both games.

“But I think we are in a better way in this moment than we were then so we have expectations.”

The head coach is now looking for a repeat performance of the Cardiff clash on Friday.

That day, over 30,000 Owls fans roared the team on to victory and into the play-offs in one of the club’s best displays of the season.

“Our fans will give a very strong answer I am absolutely sure,” he said. “Like in the Cardiff game, if the players make mistakes, the fans will give strength and we will be strong on Friday.

“We understand the opponent is strong but as I have said from the beginning, we are outsiders in the competition but at the same time we are in a very good moment so let’s see what will happen.”
