Carlos Carvalhal gives his angry reaction to Fernando Forestieri's latest red card

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

Sheffield Wednesday drew 0-0 with Hull City on Friday evening.

Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal has told the club's official website that he thinks Fernando Forestieri's red card against Hull City was 'the wrong decision'.

The Owls had picked up just one point from games against Preston North End and Queens Park Rangers, before heading to the KC Stadium to take on Hull on Friday night.

Both teams have aspirations of promotion this season, and whilst Wednesday are mostly looking at the play-offs, Hull have their sights set firmly on automatic promotion to the Premier League - and the two teams cancelled each other out when they locked horns.

Hull had the majority of possession and by far the most chances, but couldn't make it count; yet the major talking point came in injury time.

Wednesday forward Fernando Forestieri was sent off against Preston last weekend for two yellow cards, given for diving and handball - and the former Watford man was red carded for the second time in just six days, as he was again booked for simulation in the dying seconds against Hull, handing him his marching orders.

Many believe that Forestieri was hard done by due to his reputation, and now his manager Carlos Carvalhal has moved to defend his star man.

Speaking to Wednesday's official website, Carvalhal was clearly angry, stating that it was 'a question of sense' over Forestieri's red card, suggesting that he will 'absolutely not accept' the decision to send him off, as he knows there was contact on Forestieri as he ran towards goal.

"For me it is a question of sense," said Carvalhal. "I accept the first yellow card because there was a push but for the second I absolutely do not accept because there is a foul, there is contact and the defender knew this situation.

"Even if there was no contact, what is Fernando supposed to do? Sometimes to be safe you must jump out of the way for what could be a broken leg. In my opinion this was the wrong decision and we have suffered three bad decisions in our last three games," he added.

Do you think Forestieri deserved to be sent off?
