We played the perfect game

24 September 2022

Three goals, three points and a performance Darren Moore described his side as playing ‘the perfect game’.

The Owls overcame Wycombe 3-1 to move into third place and Moore was purring in his post-match media conference.

He said: “I thought we played the perfect game today against a strong, experienced team.

“We scored early, had the setback, but we just got straight back into it, got the second goal and the icing on the cake was Pato coming off the bench at the end to get his goal.


“I’ve just said to them in there, ‘we played the perfect game’.

“On the ball and without the ball, we got it spot-on. We were calm in possession, we created chances and my only real critique today was perhaps we overplayed the ball when we got into dangerous areas.

“But listen, we have beaten a very good, experienced team and credit to the players. We now have no midweek game so that means a week of hard work on the training ground and that’s what I like.”

After the 10-game landmark, the Owls are averaging two points a match, which is widely acknowledged as the bedrock for promotion.


Moore said: “I look back on the first 10 games and I will never be content because I know there’s more to come, we can get better and better.

“I’ve seen a lot of good things and things we can improve and the only way you will do that is by putting in the work on the training pitches.

Moore issued an update on George Byers, who sat out the Wycombe win:

“George bruised the top of his foot and it prevented him putting his foot through the ball. It wasn’t worth the risk today but hopefully he should be fine for next week.”
