We like these games

10 March 2017

Carlos Carvalhal says his players will relish the Villa Park environment on Saturday.

Wednesday face an Aston Villa side, whose form has picked up of late with three successive victories prior to defeat last time out against Huddersfield.

Steve Bruce’s side have triumphed in their last two outings on home soil and although wary of the threat they will pose, Carlos says his players are ready to go and fight for the three points on offer.

“It will be a difficult game,” he said during Friday’s pre-match press conference. “Before the last game they won three in a row.

“Playing at Villa Park is a big motivation for the players and managers and we know all the time that Villa are a tough team.

“They are a massive club that are not in a good position at the moment but the value is there.

“Understanding this, we expect a tough game but we will be ready.”

With an average crowd of 32,000 this season at Villa Park and tickets sold out to Wednesdayites, the head coach believes his players can thrive in that kind of atmosphere.

He continued: “We like these kind of games, our players like these kind of games and we will be ready.

“All the time, these kind of teams are a big threat but we are fully focused and with motivation.

“We didn’t finish the last game in a poor situation, we had 70% possession, a lot of crosses, a lot of shots, we are in a good position and have every reason to feel positive ahead of the next game.”
