Go and be heroes..

27 April 2022

At 2-1 down in the changing room at Highbury, Owls manager Darren Moore told us that harsh words were said in order to right the wrongs and get back into the game.

Our clash with Fleetwood was the last chance to head into the season finale with our play-off destiny in our own hands.

A packed away end stayed behind the team all throughout and the gaffer made sure to mention the superb support in his half time team talk in Lancashire.

“That was my team talk at half time,” Moore said.

“It was a packed away end again for us and credit to the supporters.

“I said to the boys, you have got a full away crowd out there to support you because they have a real firm belief in you.

“It goes to show what half the city is thinking of you – you are their heroes. So I said, give them something to cheer about.

“Give them something to go back home with, we want the three points, we have 45 minutes to turn it around and do it - and they did.”


Focus now turns to the clash with Pompey on Saturday.

“The same goes for Saturday,” he continued. “The players know they are in for a full house at Hillsborough.

“I am pleased that the supporters all went home happy and I’m pleased that over the next few days there will be excitement building in the city, in terms of what the final game means for us.

“We all have to play our part on Saturday.”
