Fernando Forestieri returns for Sheffield Wednesday

Fernando Forestieri returns for Sheffield Wednesday

The 0-0 draw in Sunday's first leg at the John Smith's Stadium was the first time Wagner has avoided defeat against Carvalhal.

Wednesday night's two play-off protagonists both boast long and distinguished histories and grand reputations within the game - it's just that quite a lot of people can't remember it.

He said: "The momentum is with us because we have done so well lately".

But the Dutch defender is still wary of the threat posed by a Huddersfield side which have defied expectations this season under David Wagner.

He played like a team worker against Huddersfield.

"I didn't use Leicester as an inspiration where I say to my players, 'Look, they've done it. They're a good team and that's why they are where they are".

The Owls suffered play-off final heartache last season after they fell to a 1-0 defeat to Hull, courtesy of a stunning long-range strike from Mohamed Diame to earn the Tigers a place in the top flight. When we played against them they didn't have too many opportunities so I think we can control them, especially at home when we play our game. Let us know below... Everyone was really disappointed past year and we just want to make sure it doesn't happen again.

He said: 'The hurt from past year is still inside us and we want to put that out of our minds.




When the work of a season comes down to two matches, there will always be vast pressure. We are pretty confident that we are able to put the ball into the net from 12 yards.

You imagine that Sheffield Wednesday would be the happier with that result but both teams will be looking to lift themselves for the most crucial game of the season so far.

Owls boss Carvalhal claimed last month that working with Forestieri was like receiving a mystery gift, saying: "You have a box, but you don't know what is inside".

"We fancy ourselves at home".

"I'm the oldest player and I'm the captain so I need to help wherever I can for the players that haven't experienced it before". However, the importance of the play-offs is not lost on him.

The same publication reported last week that Middlesbrough chairman Steve Gibson is having second thoughts about appointing Steve Agnew on a full-time basis, after the Boro caretaker won one of his 10 games in temporary charge - culminating in the Teessiders' relegation.

"We have to play to win this game".
