A real fighting attitude

10 December 2022

Darren Moore was pleased with the Owls’ resilience as we came from behind to earn a point against Exeter at St James’ Park.

Callum Paterson levelled with the last kick of the game in Devon to cancel out Jake Caprice’s second half opener.

Despite disappointment from our second half display, the Wednesday boss praised the fighting spirit of his team.  

Moore said: “It’s a good point earned. I said to the lads that they’re showing a doggedness and a resilience, a real fighting attitude.

“Last year, we lose that game, it’s as simple as that because we don’t find the impetuous to get back into it. Today, we found a way and won a point.

“What we’re asking ourselves is, why did we perform as poorly as that in the second half and sit off them and allow them to build?

“As a manager and with my staff, we were looking at the game to see how we could change it, we had to get back into the game somehow, and we did that.

“But the second half compared to the first was chalk and cheese. The first was us, the second half was not.

“We finished the game on a positive note by getting the goal, so we head back up to Yorkshire with the feeling of not getting beat and I always think when you have that feeling of resilience it adds to what we’re about this season.”

Barry Bannan left the field through injury in the first half and the Owls boss is hoping for positive news on his skipper in the coming days.

Moore added: “It’s too early to say with Baz.

“We took no chances with him, he wanted to stay on but there was no way he was going to when it comes to a muscle injury like that.

“We will assess him in the week and hopefully the scans will come back and be kind to us.”
