Carlos Carvalhal’s response when asked to address Sheffield Wednesday’s lack of goals

Sheffield Wednesday are playing well, but struggling to find the back of the net.

Speaking to the official Sheffield Wednesday website, Carlos Carvalhal has discussed the Owls’ struggles in front of goal, having seen them fail to hit the back of the net against Bolton Wanderers.

Speaking after the 0-0 draw with Bolton, Carvalhal said: “We could have scored very early on and if we had done so, the story of the game might have been very different. It is the part of the game we are missing at the moment but I am happy overall because we did a very good performance. The dynamic of our game is very good, we are getting better and better and if we carrying on playing like we are playing, I think our fans will be excited by the football they will see at our home of Hillsborough.”

Wednesday drew a blank on Tuesday evening, failing to find their way past Bolton, despite being the better team throughout the game.

Carvalhal’s men have scored seven times this season, in their opening seven games, and their have been times when they are dropping points in games they are dominating due to an inability to score consistently.

Marco Matias is the only player to have scored more than one goal this term, and even he only has two strikes to his name in the Championship.

However, Carvalhal believes there are no real issues with their play, and if they continue to perform as they did against Bolton, it will not be long before the Owls are moving their way up the league table with goals coming at a much better rate.

Against Bolton, Wednesday managed 10 shots - three of which were on target - and it is this latter statistic that needs to improve in the coming weeks for Carvalhal to continue on the Owls’ upward trend.
