We have won nothing yet warns Carvalhal

Carlos Carvalhal is taking nothing for granted as Wednesday go to Brighton for Monday night’s Championship play-off semi-final second leg with a two-goal lead.

Carvalhal rated the team’s performance in Friday’s first leg as one of the best of the season, on a tremendous night at Hillsborough, but was keeping his feet firmly on the ground as he also looked towards the second leg at the Amex.

The head coach said Wednesday will play their normal game, despite having the two-goal advantage.

He said: “At the end, we achieved 2-0 on Friday night. We are happy about the score but we know we have won absolutely nothing. The first part of the two games is finished. We have the advantage of the two goals but we have the second part to play.

“We can’t play the second leg thinking we are winning 2-0. It will start with nil nil and we will try to achieve our best to achieve the same result at Brighton on Monday.”

Carvalhal could name an unchanged side for Monday while Brighton boss Chris Hughton says all four players who left the field injured on Friday night – Tomer Hemed, Anthony Knockaert, Connor Goldson and Steve Sidwell – are rated doubtful.
