Sheffield Wednesday are due to face Huddersfield Town at the weekend.
Wednesday go into the match against their Yorkshire rivals as the heavy favourites to win, but Carvalhal is anticipating it to be very hard for his side to get the three points.
The Portuguese boss admits that every game in the Championship is tough, but he is encouraged about the mentality of his squad.

Huddersfield go into their match against Wednesday full of confidence, after beating Leeds United 4-1 in their last outing.
The Terriers are still stuck in the bottom half of the Championship table, but they have turned into a very dangerous side under David Wagner’s stewardship.
Wednesday are under pressure to get the three points against Huddersfield, as they look to book their place in the play offs.
The Owls are currently in sixth place in the Championship table, but they need to keep adding points to their total as the likes of Cardiff City and Ipswich Town are hot on their heels.
