Ready for another tough test

1 April 2021

Darren Moore spoke of the value of the extra time on the training ground over the past two weeks.

The manager has stressed from day one the importance of quality time out on the training pitches at Middlewood Road.

Upon first arriving at the club, it was game after game after game and little time to delve into the tactical and fundamental work behind the scenes.

But Moore learned plenty from that busy start and feels his side are improving week on week.

Speaking ahead of our trip to Watford on Good Friday, Moore said: “We have got through the work on the training ground.

“I have seen patches where we have done well in games and patches where we have not kept our foot on the gas.

“There was a lapse in concentration in the Huddersfield game but we were more disciplined and hard to beat against Barnsley.

“Everyone played their part and it is going to take more performances like that over the next nine games.”

As in our last game on the road at Barnsley, Watford are another of the Championship’s form sides and sit second in the table.

“It's another tough test for us,” Moore said.

“We have to make sure that we are operating at our level best again and try and build on the performance we put in before the international break.

“Winning breeds confidence. I was pleased for the players that they felt the adulation of three points. Nothing is better for a professional when you earn three points and it's a real tough game.

“But we know we have got another tough test tomorrow. We have to be strong and positive.”
