OWLS RISK MISSING OUT ON TOP SIX
BOSS Carlos Carvalhal was sent off and his team are in danger of falling off the pace.
Sheffield Wednesday will be shoved out of the top six if Fulham beat Blackburn on Tuesday.
With all their attacking options, Wednesday still failed to frighten Villa who look as if they are moulding into a decent team, despite all their current injury problems.
Being knocked out of the play-off places by Fulham, who are as freescoring and adventurous as Wednesday would like to be, would be a big blow to Carvalhal at this stage of the season.
He will have the opportunity to repair the damage on Friday at home to Reading before the weekend’s fixtures, but having held a play-off place for so long Wednesday are looking vulnerable.
While Fulham won at Newcastle, Wednesday went back up the M1 with a few worries.
They have lost three of their last ten league games and though that’s no disaster, it is gnawing away at their confidence.
