Sheffield Wednesday - Championship Football - 14 May 2017

Sheffield Wednesday host Huddersfield in the second leg of their Championship play-off semi-final at Hillsborough on Wednesday (7.45pm kick-off).

The 0-0 draw in Sunday's first leg at the John Smith's Stadium was the first time Wagner has avoided defeat against Carvalhal.

The German said: "We will not play them off the park.We played Sheffield Wednesday and no-one should forget it". I wished we had a goal and a victory but it isn't the case.

"We dominated and we had chances but it is game on".

Having played against Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund before, the intense atmosphere of a high-stakes Yorkshire derby at Hillsborough holds no fear for Kachunga.

To have come so close to a Premier League return last season is all the motivation Wednesday need this time around, according to right-back Jack Hunt. Huddersfield Town finished below Wednesday in the league table on goal difference and Wagner's men have failed to win any of their last three matches.

Huddersfield fans - can you keep Wagner if you stay down?

The relentless march of football waits for no club. We will feel it from the stands on Sunday.

Huddersfield's Tommy Smith fired over before Wells had another chance when a loose ball fell to him eight yards from goal but Westwood was out quickly to deflect it wide. "You know you're going to the top league and you always think about this emotion and everything around this celebration".

Sheffield Wednesday are looking for a second Wembley final in two years following their 1-0 loss against Hull City last season.

The Owls fielded a much-weakened line-up in their 2-1 defeat to fellow play-off hopefuls Fulham on the final day of the season to end a six-match winning run.

Carlos Carvalhal credits Huddersfield Town for their display in the Championship playoff semi-final, but says that he has "good expectations" for the return leg. We were a bit unlucky with some decisions from the referee or we were not clinical enough in front of the goal. But we can take the dominance from our performance and try to do the same and give them nothing and maybe be a bit more clinical.

"The boss has a clear idea how to beat them. We did everything to play an open game".

Definitely. Our crowd really get behind us and hopefully it will intimidate them and put them off their game.
