Owls scoop LG Performance of the Week

6 May 2016


The League Managers Association five-man Performance of the Week panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, have awarded the LG Performance of the Week to Sheffield Wednesday.

The Owls secured sixth place with a 3-0 victory against Cardiff in the Sky Bet Championship last weekend.

The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,000 competitive matches in professional football.

Owls head coach Carlos Carvalhal, will receive a specially commissioned trophy made by world renowned silversmiths and LMA Partner, Thomas Lyte of London, in a presentation to commemorate the award.

With a point being enough to secure a play-off spot, Gary Hooper gave Wednesday the lead to calm the nerves before an own goal put the game out of Cardiff’s reach. 

Hooper added a second goal late in injury time to reinforce Wednesday’s promotion credentials.

 

Carlos said: "I said from the beginning that we were outsiders this season.

"We achieved this place because we have a fantastic group of players, they're acting like a team, we are one as a team.

"We feel strong at the moment, like at the beginning of the season and we saw that today.

"Getting to the play-offs is the work of a lot of people; the players, the chairman and the fans who come home and away."
