Vital Match Reaction - Carlos Pleased Returning Forestieri

Vital Match Reaction - Carlos Pleased Returning Forestieri

Following up a win against division highflyers Newcastle was always going to be a ask, but Owls fans and Carlos wanted that victory. Even better that it came against Colin's Cardiff City. The side from the Welsh Capital rarely threatened but did arrive at Hillsborough with the intent of sitting 10 behind the ball and try to hit the Owls on the counter attack.

It didn't work and the returning Fernando Forestieri`s late headed winner saw Wednesday stay in their play-off slot despite Fulham`s victory.

Carvalhal said to swfc.co.uk:

"This game was never going to be the same as Newcastle. This game was completely different because the opponent has different arguments.

"But we achieved the win and this was the most important thing. The players gave everything, they run and fight and were very patient to win this game."

Carlos went on to praise the impact of his substitutes, including match-winner Forestieri, who settled matters with six minutes to go, adding:

"The three substitutes all helped us win the game.

"Jordan Rhodes took a very good shot, the goalkeeper made the save, and Fernando scored the goal.

"Also, Atdhe Nuhiu made a very important contribution, he played very well with the ball at his feet and with the ball in the air.

"But I was pleased with all the players today. They did the job, which was to win the game."
