Cafu comments on potential Sheffield Wednesday relegation

No, not the Brazilian legend… Nottingham Forest’s Cafu says they won’t be holding back against Sheffield Wednesday.

The Owls face Forest tomorrow afternoon in their final home game of the season, and need to pick up a result if they’re to take their survival bid into the final game of the campaign against Derby County on May 8th.

There is no love lost between Forest fans and Derby, but despite that bit of rivalry, their Portuguese midfielder, Cafu, says that they’ll be going all out to pick up all six points in their remaining two matches – even if it means relegating Wednesday.

Speaking to their club’s official website ahead of their trip to Hillsborough, Cafu said, “Me, my teammates and all the staff want to win, we work every day to win but we know it is not just down to us. It is against the opponent and we know that the Championship is a tough league. We want to end the season well and look forward to the next one.

“We know the situation and we will take the game very seriously, as we want to finish the season well and we will go out to get the three points. We always think about winning so for these last two games, the focus is on getting six points.

“We expect a tough game, like all of the games. We know their situation but ours is different. We go there to get the three points, we expect a tough game and we must adapt to the game. We will try to play our game, to be happy on the pitch and do our things well and hopefully we will win.”

Wednesday need to better Derby’s result if they’re to take it to the final day, with a defeat at Hillsborough or a Rams win seeing them officially relegated to League One. A draw in both games would also see them consigned to the third tier.

Wednesday v Forest gets underway at 12.30pm tomorrow, with Derby’s encounter against promotion-chasing Swansea City kicking off at 3pm. Both games will be televised.
