Vital Pre-Match - Cup Matters To Carlos

Vital Pre-Match - Cup Matters To Carlos

The Owls host Chesterfield this evening in the Carabao (League) Cup with news emerging from Carlos` Monday lunchtime pre-match press conference that Wednesday will field a strong side against League 2 outfit.

The competition has been devalued in recent years with endless sponsorship changes and a shift in the calendar, but it goes without saying that progress in any cup competition is a sign of a strong season. With a 1 - 0 loss at Deepdale and tough games upcoming it's important to Carvalhal to see his side respond.
Speaking to, Carlos stated:

"We care about this game a lot, we will focus the players and let`s see what will happen tomorrow.

"We will put a strong team to play absolutely sure, it will be a strong team from Sheffield Wednesday.

"We will go with our first team and take the game very seriously."

And one thing is for sure, the Owls will not be taken their League Two opposition lightly as they did with Cambridge last season, Carlos explained:

"All the time when we were abroad, England was the country where anything can happen, especially in the cup.

"So the teams not in the level of another can do something and that is something fantastic. We talked about that often when we were abroad.

"There are no easy games in this country. Surprises appear in England a lot and we must focus and we must do our work."
