Overcoming the hurdles

24 February 2022

Owls manager Darren Moore has reflected on his side’s excellent run of form and consistency at a key time in the season.

Wednesday’s run of five wins from six has been impressive but importantly for the gaffer, the performance levels have been high all throughout.

It has been far from straightforward for the Owls squad, who have had injuries to contend with and matches postponed – all factors that can interrupt momentum.

But the hurdles have been overcome and despite our fixture away at Fleetwood postponed in midweek and close rivals all in action, Wednesday remain just one point outside of the top six with games in hand.

“I am really pleased with where the players are at in terms of their performances,” the manager said.

“The performances have been good, and we just want to get better with them, the consistency has been good with the boys.

“Despite the hurdles that have been thrown at us in recent weeks, whether the ball hasn’t quite run for us or the injuries we’ve had, we’ve still got to keep that level of consistency. That’s what the boys are showing.

“They are in a good place mentally and physically, we just keep going, keep approaching it one game at a time, we look at the hurdles we face and face them together.”

Preparations continue for our home clash with Charlton on Saturday as the Owls look to keep up their form.

Only league leaders Rotherham can boast a better point return over the past six games.

The gaffer continued: “What we’re seeing is that when anybody steps in to the team, we pick up and they get carried along with the wave of where the team is at, and it’s been great to see. They’ve had to do that to build the consistency.”

Our pre-match press conference with the manager will take place on Friday at 2.00pm and our official twitter account @swfc will provide updates from Middlewood Road.
