Well-earned point after Fernando no-show

A much-improved second-half display saw Wednesday take a deserved point from a Championship stalemate at Carrow Road on Saturday evening.

We found ourselves under the cosh for much of the first-half and didn’t help our cause by failing to keep possession of the ball for any length of time and consistently misplacing passes.

However, the second half was a different story with Wednesday the dominant side and well worth a point.

Barry Bannan saw his effort from the edge of the box turned away by substitute Michael McGovern in the Norwich goal and Lucas Joao should have done better after being sent clear.

When asked afterwards about the possible disruption to pre-match plans after Fernando Forestieri refused to travel to Norwich, Carvalhal stressed the excellent team spirit at the club, adding that he felt the person who had the problem was the player himself.

He also reiterated that chairman Dejphon Chansiri had told Carvalhal before kick off that they would not be selling any players … whether that remains the case with Forestieri in the days leading up to the transfer window deadline at the end of the month remains to be seen.
