New Owls boss looks ahead to vital Millers clash

2 March 2021

Sheffield Wednesday manager Darren Moore will have little time to settle into his new surroundings before facing his first crucial test in midweek.

The Owls host relegation rivals Rotherham on Wednesday night in a vital basement battle.

With 14 games to play, time still remains for the Owls to turn the current situation around and avoid the drop.

Moore stressed during his press conference unveiling on Monday that the important thing from now is to focus on what it is to come and leave what has gone in the past.

The 46-year-old has called on the fans to ‘join forces’ and attack the rest of the season together.

“I deal with the facts,” Moore said. “And with where we are now, we have a really important game on Wednesday night.


“We have got 14 games left in the Championship and we have to focus and keep our intention on where we are at this season.

“I want to be part of a unique team here and to build and make things better. I know there is work ahead, it's not easy but sometimes roles and opportunities come along because the situation has not been easy.

"We know it's a big game on Wednesday evening."

After a hectic day in S6 yesterday, arriving at the club for the first time, meeting staff, players, familiarising with new surroundings, a press conference and so on, Moore is set for his second day on the training ground today.

“I am looking forward to the challenge,” he said. “I know the hard work is all ahead of us but we have to start from somewhere.

"It's a local derby so whatever the form guide is it goes out of the window.

"It is important for me to get in here now, get amongst the players and staff and be a part of it and try and iron out the problems going forwards.

"What has happened has happened, it is about us now as a group.

"We have got a really important game on Wednesday night, it doesn't give you much time to focus elsewhere."
