OWLS RISK MISS­ING OUT ON TOP SIX

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

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.
