Sheffield Wednesday: Steve Cotterill pitches into Hillsborough surface debate

Cotterill claimed that “the grass was too long.” and that the surface was “sticky” after his side’s 15-match unbeaten league run came to an end at the weekend.

But Carvalhal, speaking ahead of his teams Capital One cup tie against Mansfield Town, said “The pitch is amazing. Last year it was very bad and the quality of the game was not good because the pitch was very bad.”

The Portuguese boss added “This is a high level pitch in my opinion.”
