Pleased with the performance

19 November 2016

Carlos Carvalhal was happy with his side’s performance following the Owls’ 1-1 draw against Fulham at Craven Cottage, but felt they deserved to win.

Wednesday took an early lead when a sublime passing move involving Barry Bannan and Gary Hooper was finished off by Fernando Forestieri.

It looked as though the Owls would come away with all three points, but after mounting pressure late in the game the home side grabbed an equaliser through Scott Malone in the last minute.

Carvalhal said: “The important thing today for us was the 3,900 fans that travel with us for this game, they were important for us.

“I am not happy with the result because I think we deserved more, but I am very happy with our performance.

“We played with personality and created chances.

“Fulham are a good team and I think we showed everyone in this stadium that we are a very tough opponent.

“I don’t remember our goalkeeper or defence having any real problems during the match.”

The head coach added: “I am told the Fulham coach says we were the better side and I think that also.

“Our goalkeeper did not have too much defending to do and we created more of the chances.

“But we have to kill games when we get the chance and that was the difference today.”
