The Argentine striker did his bit against the Seagulls.
Sheffield Wednesday held Brighton & Hove Albion to a 1-1 draw at the Amex Stadium on Monday night to progress into the playoff final with a 3-1 aggregate win.
Courtesy of their 2-0 win at Hillsborough on Friday, Carlos Carvalhal's side went into the second leg with a huge advantage in their efforts to reach Wembley on Saturday.
And they did just that, with Ross Wallace - who scored in the first leg - cancelling out Lewis Dunk's 19th-minute opener as the Owls kept Brighton at arms length.
The Argentine clocked a 93% passing accuracy, completing 15 of the 16 that he attempted, while he also managed to win a massive 13 duels with his opponents.
|Position||Team||Duel Won||Total Tackle||Won Tackle||Dispossessed||Total Pass||Accurate Pass||Ball Recovery||Total Scoring Att||Appearances||Mins Played|
|Fernando Forestieri||FW||Sheff Wed||13||4||4||1||16||15||2||1||1||90|
In addition to that, Forestieri, who has netted 15 Championship goals this season, won all four of his tackles, and only lost possession for Wednesday once - impressive over the course of a 90-minute stint.
The 26-year-old, who also claimed two ball recoveries, only managed one shot at goal, but in a team defending a two-goal lead, a striker's chances of scoring is always going to be limited.
Wednesday's lack of possession (33%) was by design as Carvalhal's troops confidently took everything that Brighton threw at them, but Forestieri certainly did his bit and they are 90 minutes away from a Premier League berth.
They will most probably face Hull City in the final, with the Tigers smashing Derby County 3-0 at the iPro Stadium in the first leg.
