Sheffield Wednesday have already scored more open-play goals at home than they did in the whole of last season

Sheffield Wednesday have scored six goals from open play at Hillsborough this season.

Sheffield Wednesday have already scored more goals from open play at Hillsborough this season than they did during the entirety of the 2014/15 campaign.

The Owls took their total to six open-play goals in-front of their own supporters on Saturday, during their 3-1 win over Preston North End.

And that is a figure which has already surpassed the total which they achieved last season, when they only scored five times from open-play at their home ground.

Wednesday were a side who struggled to score under Stuart Gray last term, with their success generally built around being solid defensively. 

When they did score, the bulk of their goals went in via set-pieces, and Carlos Carvalhal has quickly worked on improving his side's attacking threat.

Wednesday brought in the likes of Lucas Joao and Fernando Forestieri during the summer transfer window, and the increased talent in their forward line is already paying dividends.

Wednesday have scored a total of 15 goals this season, in their first 10 matches, and they will be looking to continue to hit the back of the net when they return to action after the international break.
