A victory of quality

16 October 2016


Carlos Carvalhal said the Owls executed their game plan to perfection as they beat Huddersfield 1-0 at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The game was fairly even until midway in the second half, when mounting pressure from Wednesday ended with Terriers midfielder Rajiv Van La Parra handballing in his own area from a Tom Lees shot.

Fernando Forestieri stepped up and calmly struck the ball past goalkeeper Danny Ward into the top corner to give the away side the lead.

Wednesday saw the game out to get three crucial points in what was Huddersfield’s first home defeat of the season.

Carvalhal said: “Today we played against a very strong team.

“They have a good dynamic and they cause a lot of problems to all the teams they play.



“However, we had plenty of time to prepare the game and learn how to play against Huddersfield.

“We worked very hard and everybody defended, including the strikers, and we blocked their dynamic.

“We put in a lot of work in the training so that we didn’t come up against any surprises today.

“Today was a victory of quality.

“People ask me a lot about the partnerships in our team, but I don’t agree with this, because there’s only one partnership that matters, and that is Sheffield Wednesday as a whole.”
