Sheffield Wednesday head coach Carlos Carvalhal thinks his side are trying to kill him after they came from behind once again to beat Nottingham Forest 2-1.
Kieran Lee scored a stoppage-time winner after earlier cancelling out Henri Lansbury's first-half opener, a 30-yard deflected effort which had come against the run of play.
The equaliser came in the 68th minute when Ross Wallace delivered a right-wing corner which was met by a far post header from Lee.
And then, with normal time up, Lee scored the winner from close range after receiving the ball from Fletcher.
Carvalhal said: "If the plan of the team is to kill me, they are very near, I must tell you! One more game like this and they will kill me!
"We created a lot of chances to win the game. Nottingham Forest were very difficult and organised opponents and they had some chances also.
"When questions are put to us, we must give the correct answers and I felt we did that so we are happy.
"We are creating and moving the ball with personality. My players showed a lot of character to win this game.
"We put Gary Hooper behind Fernando (Forestieri) and Fletcher. We took some risks because Nottingham Forest's full-backs attack well."
If the plan of the team is to kill me, they are very near, I must tell you! One more game like this and they will kill me!
Praising match-winner Lee, Carvalhal added: "He's a player that coaches and colleagues appreciate because they understand his influence. He's a fantastic character who works hard all the time."
Nottingham Forest head coach Philippe Montanier said: "It was a good game against a good team. It's disappointing to lose at the end of the match.
"I'm disappointed about two bad decisions, too, because it makes the difference at the end.
"A throw-in was given to the opponents before the corner (for Wednesday's first goal). I said at the time that I was not sure but it is clear on the video.
"There was also a foul in the build-up to the winning goal. Sheffield don't need this help because they are a very good team. The decisions killed us and it is very frustrating.
"We defended very well and we felt that if we could score at the start of the second half, perhaps we can change the game.
"We have had several games where we've showed a good defensive mentality."
