Let's do this together

1 December 2017

Owls head coach Carlos Carvalhal has issued a passionate message to the fans as the club enters this next crucial phase of the Championship.

Wednesday have six fixtures to contend throughout December and the festive fixture schedule begins this weekend as the Owls host Hull at Hillsborough.

Carlos has called for everybody connected to Sheffield Wednesday to put negatives to one side and push together to achieve the right result on Saturday.

“It’s a crucial time of the season to put the team in our position,” the head coach said.

“I am absolutely sure that when everybody pushes each other, when the fans are with the team, when the fans understand the mistake of one player and push them to go again, then our team and our players will react with a good result and performance.

“Absolutely, this is what I expect. Let’s do that on Saturday, put everybody in the same way, everybody push to the players for a very good afternoon for Sheffield Wednesday.

“Push the boys for 90 minutes and let’s see the result. Put the negatives to the side and put everybody in a positive way, because it is then that we are really strong.”

The Owls are unbeaten in their past six games but with three draws last week and two clean sheets, Carlos believes there is a good balance in the team to push forward offensively, as he explained:

“When teams come down from the Premier it can take some time to adapt to the competition but we recognise the value Hull have in the team.

“But on the other side, they will face a team unbeaten in the last six games, with clean sheets and that’s something important to build the victories.

“I think we are in a good place to start building more things in the offensive part of the team.

“Because we are solid, we are compact, the team work of the players is good and the defensive organisation.

“Understanding it will not be an easy game, we have very good expectations.

“It has been a very good week in training, we have no fresh injuries, the attitude has been really very good and we have tried to move some things with a full week to prepare.”
