Sheffield Wednesday are hoping to secure their Wembley date as they take on David Wagner’s Huddersfield Town later tonight.
“Our fans are fantastic, it will be sold out and they will play a very important role, but we must do our job of course”.
Wagner has faced Wednesday three times since taking over as boss of the Terriers and has yet to see his side pick up a point or even score a goal.
“If we come back into the game very strong like we did yesterday, I think the supporters will not be happy from Sheffield Wednesday“.
Forestieri has been used sparingly since his return from a knee injury, but Carvalhal feels the forward can be the difference as they push for a place in the Premier League.
“I didn’t use Leicester as an inspiration where I say to my players, ‘Look, they’ve done it. It’s only about timing to be there at the right moment”.
Huddersfield fans – can you keep Wagner if you stay down? We will feel it from the stands on Sunday.
The Huddersfield Town boss is said to want out of the Yorkshire side if they fail to win promotion this season, and he could feature on the radar of both Middlesbrough and Norwich City.
Huddersfield’s Tommy Smith fired over before Wells had another chance when a loose ball fell to him eight yards from goal but Westwood was out quickly to deflect it wide.
Here is everything you need to know ahead of the Yorkshire clash.
He said: “We all know Sheffield Wednesday is a big club and has a massive support so there is only one place where everyone involved with Sheffield Wednesday wants to go and that is the Premier League. At the end of the day, the most important thing is the semi-final is open, we must now play at Hillsborough and we have good expectations”.
This saw both teams go into the break with neither managing to muster a shot on target, just like in yesterday’s other play-off semi-final first leg which saw Fulham come back from behind to draw 1-1 with Reading at Craven Cottage. We were a bit unlucky with some decisions from the referee or we were not clinical enough in front of the goal.
A 2-1 win over Newcastle in the second game of the season was the only time the visitors have won at a fellow top six side.
It may be the biggest game some players will have played so far in their footballing careers.. “We are massively better at home”.
