Owls expect tough Wolves challenge

24 November 2016


Wednesday will have plenty to contend with this weekend at Wolves.

The Molineux side are expecting their biggest attendance of the season as a new chapter begins at the club under manager Paul Lambert.

It’s the second time this season the Owls will face opposition away from home with a newly installed boss in the hot seat.

Understanding the extra difficulties that go with this territory, Carlos Carvalhal said:

“We talk all the time about the games being tough in the Championship.

“It’s the second time we have played against a team – Cardiff being the first – where they have changed the coach and it’s the first home game.

“These kind of things can give a little more energy to the team, new behaviour to the players and the fans and make the game more difficult.

“Against Cardiff, in that game we performed really very well, we played very good football in the second half. We drew the game and achieved one point in that stadium.

“Against Wolves it will be a tough but we are looking more to ourselves than our opponents and looking to the process to see how the team is doing.”



The head coach highlighted the many positives to come from the 1-1 draw with Fulham last weekend and wants to see more progress this time out, particularly with the efficiency in front of goal.

“We come from a very interesting game at Fulham where we did a lot of positive things,” he added.

“The fans that followed us and saw the match, even though they were unhappy with the result, were proud of the performance.

“We are progressing, we did our best game in this season so far and it’s why we didn’t give many chances to Fulham.

“We had clear chances to kill the game but we didn’t do this and we must improve this part of our game.”
