Carlos Carvalhal comments on the players who are supporting Gary Hooper and Fernando Forestieri

Sheffield Wednesday

Wednesday picked up a big win v Brentford today.

Sheffield Wednesday carried on their push toward the automatic promotion places in the Championship today with a comfortable 4-0 win over Brentford at Hillsborough.

The result came courtesy of goals from the club's two dangermen, Fernando Forestieri and Gary Hooper, before Kieran Lee and Lucas Joao finished things off against Brentford, who saw Yoann Barbet sent off for denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity just five minutes into the game.

The result was well deserved for Carlos Carvalhal's men and the fact that Forestieri and Hooper hit the back of the net again was a huge boost.

The two forwards have been in excellent form in recent weeks and their antics in front of goal are undoubtedly helping to push Wednesday up the Championship table.

But in his post-match press conference the Portuguese boss was quick to point out that the pair are only scoring regularly because of the able assistance of their team-mates.

Carvalhal stated:

Indeed Wednesday have excellent creative players behind their goal-getters such as Barry Bannan, Ross Wallace and the link up play of Atde Nuhiu - all of which help Wednesday find the back of the net on a regular basis.

If they can continue to do so than promotion will become a real possibility for The Owls.
