Darren Moore: Post-Wycombe talking points

27 November 2021

Here are all the key talking points from Darren Moore's press conference following the Owls' 2-2 draw with Wycombe at Hillsborough.

ON TWO POINTS DROPPED

That’s what it feels like if I’m being honest. I was really pleased with the performance, the determination, the spirit, the attitude. We’ve had chances in double figures, we’ve caused them all kind of problems and I would say they are the most experienced team in the division. They were really brave in keeping three up top and I will say that to Gareth when I go back in. They are a good side but we were a lot better and only disappointment for me is that one point is not three.

ON A SEVEN POINT WEEK

We wanted nine points from a very important week and we’ve got seven which is positive but I still wanted nine. It’s helped us up the table so it’s been a productive week. We now have a break from the league and play Hartlepool in the Papa John’s Trophy and we will be picking from pretty much the same squad because of the situation we’re in. We are taking the competition seriously. In the league we are going well, we are now unbeaten in 10 so again that’s good to take that to double figures.

ON CONSISTENCY

The pleasing aspect is the consistency of the recent performances. We took the MK Dons performance into this game and as I say we should have won the game today. We are scoring goals, we are creating chances, we are pulling teams apart, so there are plenty of aspects and signs that we are heading in the right direction. Consistency is vital and that’s what we are aiming to achieve. I said in my programme notes before the game Wycombe are a quality team, very well drilled and we’ve got the better of them in every way apart from the win, which I thought we deserved.

ON GETTING THE GAME ON

We are all grateful for the hard work of the groundstaff this morning and throughout the afternoon until kick-off. We found out the game would go ahead at 1.20pm when the referee conducted his inspection and we all wanted the game on. My concern was that it could take its toll on the pitch but it played well, there was no drag, no problems, and credit to the staff for their hard work.
