The Owls head south to face fellow promotion contenders Wycombe at Adams Park on Saturday and here are some talking points from Darren Moore’s pre-match media conference.


Of course it’s a big game but it’s the next game and they are all big games at Sheffield Wednesday.

We’ve put a line through the Crewe game, we’ve had a couple of days to regroup and get everyone ready for Wycombe. We’ve got another difficult game ahead of us and we’ll face it as one.


I think without looking at the three games left we have as a whole, I know it’s a cliché, but we just look at one at a time.

Wycombe are very experienced and have some very good players. We know that Gareth knows the club inside out and he knows how to get the team back to where they have been. We have to be prepared, it’s two teams going head-to-head with different styles and it bodes well for a good game.


Mentally and physically the boys are in a good place and they are getting stronger as the weeks go by. We’re still looking to get better and better, that’s the challenge we’ve set ourselves from the start of pre-season.


When I look back to my playing days, I do enjoy this period of the season. As a manager I have to stay consistent with people and deal with the hurdles that come our way as best as I can. We don’t rest on our laurels, and we have to keep moving forward, improving as a team and as individuals.


Harlee is in a good place and has been back in training, we have a decision to make on him for tomorrow. Dom Iorfa is not fit and won’t be involved. Sam Hutchinson is back in the squad and available tomorrow.


Other than that from last week, everyone else is looking to be back in the team and fighting for their place.

We thought that maybe Dom could be back for Portsmouth but we don’t envisage him being ready. It’s going to be a few more weeks yet. He went in for a tackle in training and just came off worst, it’s one of those things. It’s not a long injury but it seems it is because the season is coming to a close.


It’s a balancing act because you want the intensity in training that you take into games. It’s nobody’s fault, he was just unlucky with the contact.

Josh will be assessed next week with the games we will have left. We’ll look at him for Fleetwood and see where he’s at.


I would like to say thanks again. The support has been consistent home and away so to take another full allocation is superb. I’m sure we could have filled the stadium if we’d been given the chance!

Every game they are in full voice and the opposition always credits our fans for the atmosphere they bring and we’re looking forward to seeing them again tomorrow.
