The Owls head to Ipswich on Saturday and here are some of the talking points from Darren Moore following his pre-match press conference.
On Dele-Bashiru and Gibson
Fis is in and around the team and being patient but he’s right in there and at any time can make a first start. The good thing we’ve got is people playing different positions who can do a job for the team. For example it’s no pressure for Sam in midfield as it's a position he knows really well. Lewis has made some very good progress but we don’t think he’s quite there yet. He’s getting near but needs more minutes in training.
On being consistent
We need to stay consistent with our play throughout the 90 minutes. We showed that intensity in the first 30-40 minutes last week, we know we can do it and we feel we’re getting stronger and stronger each week. The players are getting that and there’s more cohesion. You want to implement your game on the opposition but they want to implement theirs as well.
On the Ipswich game
We want to win every week. I would be saying that whether we go into the Ipswich game with five wins or five defeats. I’m greedy, I want to win every game, it’s as simple as that. It’s a great game potentially on Saturday, two teams who’ve had big turnarounds in terms of player recruitment and hopefully it’ll be a good fast game of football down there. We’re going to have to be at our best and put in a top, top performance. I know Paul Cook well. He’s a good man, very experienced at the level and knows what he wants. He’s ultra-competitive and wears his heart on his sleeve.
On Ciaran Brennan
We have spoken in recent weeks about the young players. We’re pleased that the players out on loan are having a good time at their clubs and getting minutes and hopefully Ciaran will follow suit. For him to go to a club of the ilk of Notts County and play games is a good opportunity for Ciaran and we’ll keep track of his progress. He’s got wonderful potential and we’ll watch him from afar.
I like the pressure, it whets your appetite in terms of being at this football club. We know the journey won’t be smooth but we’re here to work every day. Nobody said our games were going to be easy, I would never say that due to my experiences in this league. We know there’s a lot of hard work ahead and it won’t be plain sailing. The biggest game is the next test. The title of the clubs doesn’t matter, it’s just the next game, and the next game is always the biggest.
