May 17 at 21:45 on Wednesday, the return game of the semifinal round of the playoffs of the League of England Championship will take place, in which Sheffield Wednesday at the Hillsborough stadium will play against Huddersfield.

The German said: "We will not play them off the park.We played Sheffield Wednesday and no-one should forget it".

Wednesday were beaten by Hull in last year's play-off final and their bid to avenge that painful defeat remains on track after they subdued Huddersfield in the closing stages.

"I didn't use Leicester as an inspiration where I say to my players, 'Look, they've done it".

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

He said: "This football club waited so long for this moment, to have the chance to come into the Premier League".

“They might be going back home thinking theyve got a superior advantage now, but I dont see it that way, if we go there and dominate like we did here, then you never know what can happen.” Wells added.

It was as much as Carlos Carvalhal's men could muster, though, despite the introduction of former Terrier Jordan Rhodes, with the Owls holding on to leave the semi-final well poised heading into the second leg on Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Middlesbrough are also keen on Wagner as they seek a permanent replacement for Aitor Karanka ahead of next season's Championship campaign. We all know what's at stake.

"At the end of the day, the most important thing is the semi-final is open".

Wednesday go into the match on the back of three victories from their last four home fixtures however The Owls have lost on home soil to Play-Off rivals Reading and Fulham this season. We were a bit unlucky with some decisions from the referee or we were not clinical enough in front of the goal.

“It may be the biggest game some players will have played so far in their footballing careers.”.

Westwood was also forced into the second meaningful save of the game, after 71 minutes, when he deflected a Wells shot behind after another energetic attack down the Huddersfield left.

"To be honest, I didn't expect us to be in this position at the start of the season". We tried to score but we must give credit to Huddersfield, as they blocked our transition. "We don't have to manage the result or something, for me a good result against Wednesday is a win and nothing else".
