How it happened…

17 October 2016


The Owls posted their second successive victory away from home on Sunday, defeating Huddersfield 1-0 with Fernando Forestieri on target from the spot.

As Wednesday became the first side to take points off the Terriers at The John Smith’s Stadium, here’s how events unfolded…

PRE-MATCH

Carlos Carvalhal said: “Huddersfield are in a good level, they are in first place and deserve that at this moment.

“They haven’t lost any points at home so it’s a good challenge for us.”

Ross Wallace said: “We are happy with how we are going but I think we can still go through the gears. We’ve still got levels to go and it’s a positive that we’ve not hit full throttle.”



David Wagner said: “I have a lot of respect for them and their manager and his philosophy.

“They did well last season and if we are to be successful, we have to reach our best performance level and have every supporter behind us.”

POST-MATCH

Carlos Carvalhal: “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 was a victory of quality.”

David Wagner said: “It's a disappointing result but I don't have any complaints about the performance, the effort, the attitude, the fighting attitude. If two strong sides play against each other then it's even - it's tight like it was today.”
