Carlos Carvalhal will spend this extended break in action getting his mis-firing Sheffield Wednesday side back into goalscoring form.

A running theme so far this campaign has seen the team guilty of not converting nearly enough of the opportunities they have been creating.

It is a factor that Carvalhal readily admits has been a major concern and with the next match at Huddersfield Town just under two weeks away, due to the international break, training sessions in the interim will focus on improving the goals per game ratio.

So far, after 11 fixtures, Wednesday are averaging almost 15 shots on goal, yet they are registering a little over a goal a game.

While Carvalhal has recognised the need to improve up front, the head coach remains confident the team will do so.

“We have a two-week period now where we can train and will try to improve our efficiency. We must score more goals with the chances we are creating. We are creating too many chances but very few goals,” he said.

“We will try to create situations to improve our finishing. I believe my team will be back with better efficiency.”

Carvalhal added: “We must improve collectively and individually. We are waiting for some players to do better. They are trying. I believe they will do better.”
