Set pieces, supporters and two points dropped

9 April 2022

The Owls suffered last-gasp frustration at Bolton as the hosts levelled right at the last to deny Wednesday a crucial three points. Here are some talking points from Darren Moore’s post-match press conference.


Of course it does, it can’t feel like anything else. We were dominant today, it was a dominant performance. We created enough chances to win two football matches but we didn’t take them and that’s cost us. Credit to Bolton for never giving up and going to the end but we shouldn’t have allowed that to happen, we should’ve put the game to bed. So yes, it feels like two points dropped, but we move on, it’s another game gone, we are still in there and there is a lot of football still to be played.



Jordan has done what it says on the tin since he has been here, he has defended his goal and his lines. So to see him score and celebrate with the 5,000 Wednesdayites was very pleasing. He’s had a hard week personally but I’ve kept a close eye on him in training this week and he was ready to come back into the team. I’ve been really impressed with Jordan since he came to Sheffield Wednesday and today would’ve been the icing on the cake for him.



We’ve scored from one set piece today and conceded from one set piece today so we know what we have to do better. I do think on this occasion we have been really unfortunate because it was a bit of pinball in our box, the ball has ricoched off one of our players and landed right in the path of their lad, who shoots and scores. That’s football sometimes, it can hurt you and today it has.



I was disappointed for everyone at the end and not least the 5,000 fans who backed us magnificently today. We couldn’t have asked for anything more and unfortunately they will not be going home happy. But my message to them is that we will shake this disappointment off, we will dust ourselves down, and straight from Monday we focus on going to MK Dons next Saturday.



The treatment room is clearing thankfully and long may that continue. I want as any bodies as possible for the last few weeks. Liam Palmer was back in the squad and that’s a positive. This week we will take a good look at Lewis and Dennis. We have a very busy April period, and at the end of April we will know which path we are taking and I want as many players on that path as possible.
