Players were fantastic says Carvalhal

Carlos Carvalhal was full of praise for his players after our 2-1 win at Villa.

The head coach talked of the pre-natch plan to “block the dynamic of Villa” but also of trying to win the game and said: “I think my players did fantastic work today.

“We played with quality and performed very well.”

Carvalhal felt Wednesday performed at the same level as in the previous three games and was pleased with the way the recently recalled Jordan Rhodes connected with the team, linking up well with Gary Hooper.
