It was play-off heartache for Carlos Carvalhal’s team twelve months ago after losing in the Wembley final against Hull City, although Sheffield Wednesday could be about to get another bite of the cherry.

A goalless draw at the John Smith’s Stadium puts the Owls in pole position to book their place in the Championship play-off final, with Wednesday containing their Yorkshire rivals and they now simply need to win on Wednesday night.

Last season, Carvalhal’s men met Brighton at this stage of the play-offs and enjoyed a 2-0 win at Hillsborough, with a packed stadium likely to cheer them home on this occasion, especially with the Terriers having stumbled towards the end of the campaign.

David Wagner’s side looked like automatic promotion material earlier in the season, although they lost touch with Newcastle and Brighton in the spring and their form dipped to the extent that Wednesday actually finished above them.

Wednesday have won fifteen home matches this season which is a decent strike rate and Fulham are the only side to have beaten them in the last nine games.

While there’s a lack of an out-and-out striker within the ranks (as there was last season), we can expect Fernando Forestieri and Steven Fletcher to make an impact should Carvalhal give that particular front two the nod.
