Carlos Carvalhal praises Sheffield Wednesday's amazing supporters, fans respond on Twitter

Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal has praised the club's fans.

Sheffield Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal has taken to Twitter in order to praise the club's 'amazing' supporters ahead of the play-offs.

The Owls lost 2-1 to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon, but whilst the Championship league season is over, the play-offs are beginning later this week.

Sixth-placed Wednesday will be taking on Brighton and Hove Albion in the semi-finals, which will be a difficult task given how the Seagulls only missed out on automatic promotion on goal difference.

With a place in the play-off final at Wembley Stadium up for grabs, Wednesday will need their fans behind them to create a magical night at Hillsborough, just like they did when Wednesday beat Arsenal 3-0 in the Capital One Cup back in October.

Now, manager Carlos Carvalhal has taken to Twitter, sending a message to supporters that they are 'amazing' having travelled to Molineux on Saturday.

After sending that tweet, the Portuguese boss received a number of responses from Wednesday fans, who were thanking him for a superb season so far.

Others simply can't wait for Friday's home leg against Brighton, and feel that there could be even better fortunes on the horizon under Carvalhal.

Do you think Wednesday will win the Championship play-offs?
