Resilient Owls equal club record

3 May 2016

For the second successive season, the Owls have equalled a club record of clean sheets in a single league campaign.

The record of 17 shutouts – first set back by Jack Charlton’s side of 1978/79 – was equalled in the 2014/15 season.

And following Wednesday’s 3-0 win over Cardiff on Saturday, Carlos Carvalhal’s men have too gone level with the long-standing record.

Wednesday posted three clean sheets during April with wins over Huddersfield (1-0) and Cardiff and the 0-0 draw with MK Dons at Hillsborough.

Carlos Carvalhal said: “We have a fantastic balance between scoring goals and keeping clean sheets.

“This is something we appreciate because it is a balance within the team. We are not taking goals but we are scoring goals.

“We’re not a team that doesn’t take goals because we play defensive, no. Our team is very balanced and there is a very good distribution of goals in the team.”
