Darren Moore: Pre-Portsmouth talking points

29 April 2022

ON A SELL-OUT HILLSBOROUGH
It’s great to hear there’s a full house on Saturday, we thank them as always for their support and look forward to an amazing atmosphere.

Credit to every single one of them for coming out and supporting the team. All of us really appreciate it so much.

As a manager, there’s a few things that’s a personal goal for me on a personal level and one of them is a sell-out crowd. If you’re getting a sell-out attendance then you know something is going right at the football club.

We all have our part to play and I hope everyone has got the same excitement that I have for tomorrow.

Our home form has played a significant part in where we are this season, and we want to keep that run going. It’s something we’re really proud of and tomorrow we need to do more of the same.

ON THE GAME
We always go into every game to win and that’s no different tomorrow. Our focus has been clear since day one so we have to continue what we’ve been doing.

The players are in a good place coming in from the back of an excellent win against Fleetwood in midweek, their confidence is high.

I don’t think you can say Portsmouth don’t have anything to play for. They’re an elite professional football team with coaches and player that want to win.

We know it’s going to be a tough game and we know we’ll have to be at our best to get the result we want.

They’ve had some impressive results and have an excellent attacking prowess. They are looking to finish the season strong and come here full of confidence. We go head-to-head with another form team and it will be a wonderful atmosphere tomorrow.

ON PLAYER AVAILABILITY
We have more or less the same numbers from midweek, the group is back to where it should be.

I’m not sure if Josh is ready to start yet, he had a good solid week of training and a good half an hour midweek, he’s part of the squad for tomorrow.

It’s great to have someone of Josh’s quality, we know that goal threat he carries.

ON LEE GREGORY
Excellent praise for Lee. It was a great hat-trick. You always want your number nine scoring and I’m really pleased.

I’ve always felt we’ll score goals if we get the right service to our strikers. He plays a huge part for us in terms of his all-round game. Long may his form continue.
