Liam Palmer discusses Carlos Carvalhal's rotation policy at Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday

Carlos Carvalhal has rotated his Sheffield Wednesday team throughout the season so far.

Liam Palmer has told the Sheffield Star that everyone at Sheffield Wednesday is still trying to get used to Carlos Carvalhal's rotation policy.

The Portuguese boss has consistently tinkered with his team throughout the campaign so far, with a large number of players being used.

The Owls are yet to settle on a regular starting line-up, but Palmer says that all of the players are buying into the ethos of their new boss. 

“It’s new," the defender said. “The other boys, we say to each other that we’re all in it together.

“If Hunty [Jack Hunt] is playing instead of me, I wish him all the best to try and pick up the win. And he does the same when I’m playing.

“That’s the dynamic the staff and the manager want. That’s what you’ve all got to buy into."

Palmer has been one of the biggest losers of Carvalhal's rotation policy, with the versatile defender failing to nail down a place in the starting XI.

The 24-year-old was a regular in Wednesday's line-up last term, but he has found chances hard to come by this time around and has only started two Championship matches to date. 

He can have few complaints about not being in the starting line-up at the moment, though, as Wednesday are in such good form.

The Owls have won their last four matches on the bounce, and currently lurk just outside the play-off places in the Championship table.
