CARLOS: IT’S NOT THE TIME TO PANIC
SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY manager Carlos Carvalhal has called for calm from supporters amid concerns that the Owls’ poor recent run could see them blow their play-off hopes.
The Yorkshire club failed to win any of the five Championship games that preceded yesterday’s trip to Nottingham Forest, including a goalless draw on Tuesday against Brighton, prompting stinging criticism from the travelling supporters of Carvalhal and his team.
With ten matches remaining, the pressure is on to turn round their dip in form as they look to hang on to the final play-off berth.
“We don’t have any crisis. We know exactly why we lose points,” said Carvalhal.
“We are working as normal. I don’t feel any change between now and three months ago.
“We are focused on the next game all the time. Everybody is showing in training that they want to play.
“We don’t have any player who is out of the team thinking ‘I don’t play and I don’t have any chance’.
All of them believe they can play. The big pressure that our players have is with themselves over whether they play or not.
They know they have to play to their maximum to play.”
