Darren Moore: Post-Plymouth talking points

11 September 2021

Here are the key talking points from Darren Moore's post-match press conference at Home Park following the Owls' disappointing 3-0 defeat to Plymouth.


It’s credit to Plymouth. They set up to get amongst us. The goals were uncharacteristic for us and more self-inflicted. We didn’t have the focus and the vision we had in recent weeks. The last one we were chasing the game because if we got one goal back I felt we could’ve gone on and got another. But they’ve hit us right at the end to make it 3-0. We’re going to get games like this through the season and we have to learn from them. We take the plaudits when we win games so we take our medicine tonight.



We get straight back to work on the training ground and get this game out of our systems. Of course, I am looking for the right response, that’s what the good teams do. From our perspective today we weren’t quite there. We will start putting those wrongs right for next week’s game against Shrewsbury. The only place you can do that is on the training ground, we are on a journey here, we are a new team and the more time we spend together as a team the better.



I don’t really want to talk about the players that were not on the pitch, I prefer to talk about the players who were on the pitch. They are representing Sheffield Wednesday and we weren’t at our best today. But there are no excuses from me, we were beaten by the better team on the day. The long journey makes no difference, playing in the heat makes no difference. I’m a straightforward manager, we will take our medicine and move on.


I don’t hide or shirk anything and we took over 2,000 fans down to Plymouth today and I said to the boys, you take the pats on the back and you take the medicine. We had to clap the fans and show our appreciation because they’ve travelled such a long way to support the team. We apologise to them that we couldn’t get the three points we wanted today. They will continue to support us through thick and thin and we are grateful for that. So irrespective of the result, we show our commitment to them.
