Carlos Carvalhal explains why Sheffield Wednesday fans must be happy with this season

Sheffield Wednesday are currently in sixth place in the Championship table.

Carlos Carvalhal has told the Sheffield Star that Sheffield Wednesday supporters should be happy with his side’s form this season, as they have never slipped to a run of defeats.

Wednesday have consistently reacted well to poor results, and even when their were struggling for victories in the early part of the campaign, many of their matches finished as a draw.

And Carvalhal insists that Wednesday’s consistency proves just how strong the character of his squad is.

“Our fans must be happy because they have never seen us go through a bad run," he said. 

“We have been one of the most consistent teams so far in the competition if you exclude the first seven games.

“We are in a good position. We are playing fantastic football. We play good, attractive football and score a lot of goals. People are enjoying our football. Five thousand six hundred fans followed us to Preston which shows they are happy with the team.”

The Owls started slowly under Carvalhal, but they have got progressively stronger throughout the campaign.

Wednesday have collected 23 points from their last 11 matches to move up into the play off spaces, and they are one of the most in-form teams in the second tier.

However, they will have to prove their resilience when they take on Queens Park Rangers later this evening - as Wednesday were beaten in their most recent outing.

The Yorkshire side lost 1-0 against Preston North End last weekend, bringing to an end an eight match unbeaten streak in the league.

If Carvalhal’s men do manage to beat QPR this evening, they could move up to fourth in the standings.
