Owls boss Carlos Carvalhal reflected on a night of highs and lows in the Carabao Cup at the Macron Stadium on Tuesday evening where Wednesday crashed out of the competition for another year.

The Owls` trailed 3-0 with 14 minutes to go but managed to create hope of an undeserved comeback as Jordan Rhodes hit a late double but it was too little too late.

Carlos made a bid to thrust himself into spotlight as he was sent to the stands and despite taking a seat was ushered further into the stand by stewards much to his disgust and the Bolton fans` enjoyment.

After he calmed down, Carlos told

“Tonight was all about positives and negatives from my point of view.

“The positives were the way we created so many chances and we could have had many goals, that is the reality.

“Also we showed a strong reaction when we were 3-0 down and I don`t quite know how the score got to 3-0.

“But that was the reality and we had to deal with it. So I was pleased with the way we fought back and a few minutes more would have seen us get another goal, I am sure.

“The negatives? We went 3-0 down when that should never have been the score and we are out of the cup.

“I always say the Championship is the most important thing and that is correct but we came here to win, we prepared for the game correctly but we lost the game.”

Rhodes getting off the mark for the season bodes well for the Scottish striker as he squares up to Winnall, Hooper and Fletcher for a starting place as the Owls bid to climb the table. But the main talking point as fans left the ground on Tuesday was seeing both managers sent to the stands and Carlos` exploits, he added:

“With the emotion of the moment, I left my technical area and the decision of the referee was correct but there were reasons why I was out there.

“I do not want to talk about this incident too much. The security man has apologised to me, he acted very bad in that moment.

“Afterwards Phil Parkinson came to shake my hand and there is no problem, these things happen in football.”
