Carlos Carvalhal will receive the League Managers’ Association Performance of the Week award on Friday after our Boxing Day win at Newcastle.
The five-man panel, made up of chairman and former Owls boss Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, rated the 1-0 victory as the best display over the festive period.
Carlos will be presented with the trophy at the Middlewood Road training ground.
* Wednesday fans snapped up a further 1000 tickets – for the West Stand lower tier – for our home game with Wolves on January 2, after they were released for sale on Thursday morning.
The game was already a sellout for Wednesday fans before this extra, and final, allocation was allowed, following talks with the local authorities with regard to safety and segregation.
