Darren Moore: Post-Burton talking points

5 February 2022

The Owls recorded a vital win at Burton on Saturday and here are some talking points from Darren Moore’s post-match press conference.

ON MAKING THE GAME

I showed a negative test yesterday and another one today so I phoned the doctor and got here about an hour and a bit before the game. I wanted to be with the boys for the game and I was pleased to be able to get here today. I feel absolutely fine and I feel even better after the win.

ON THE WIN

We deserved the win in what were difficult weather conditions on a difficult pitch. That’s probably the worst I have seen it since I was here as a player. But we got on with it and I thought we produced a really professional performance. The wind was driving and it was hard to play our game but you have to be adaptable and we showed that side today.

ON CLEAN SHEETS

The base is at the back and that allows the players at the front to score the goals to win the games. We have got this side of our game in a good place. It’s always pleasing to win and to win with a clean sheet and even more so away from home. The performances have been there, like the last game away at Oxford, the performance was there, it was just the lapses in concentration that cost us. We’ve sharpened up on that side and the results are there to see.

ON INJURIES

We don’t seem to have any problems today but as always we will give it 24 hours and assess things then. In terms of the players already out injured, I’m not expecting much change before the Wigan game. We are waiting for the full assessments and I’ve been away from the training ground these last few days and today I’ve come down here after returning a negative test. So I will be looking at everything in-depth over the next day or two, assessing exactly where we are and who we have available and who we don’t.
