Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal has challenged his side to maintain their improved form as he seeks his first Championship away victory.

The Owls will be seeking a third win on the spin when they take on Brentford at Griffin Park tomorrow.

Buoyed after knocking Premier League Newcastle United out of the Capital One Cup after making 10 changes, Carvalhal wants his players to show their battling qualities in West London.

“I expect us to play at the same level that we have done in the last four matches,” he told The Star. “We are confident and acting like a team.

“Everyone has a role when we have the ball and when we don’t. They all know what we must do so we go to fight for three points (at Brentford).

“We want to do better. The team is improving week by week but I think we can play even better.”

Carvalhal has indicated he plans to make wholesale changes versus the Bees, suggesting his team will have a similar look to the one that faced Fulham. He hopes striker Fernando Forestieri (hamstring) will be passed fit for selection.

Meanwhile, the Owls’ fourth round cup clash with Arsenal will be screened live on Sky and take place on October 27. Head coach Carvalhal has ordered his troops to stay focused on league matters.

“I know they are a big club but I don’t care about the Arsenal match,” he stressed.
