We turn the page and move on to Tuesday

13 February 2023

After Saturday’s eventful 2-2 draw with promotion rivals Ipswich, Owls manager Darren Moore was straight to work on his preparations for Tuesday’s home clash with Morecambe.

Wednesday are 17 games unbeaten in League One and immediately after the Portman Road stalemate, the gaffer says it was a case of turn the page and move on to Tuesday.

A completely different challenge awaits under the lights at Hillsborough as the Shrimps head to S6 in need of points to move out of the relegation zone.

The Owls have faced Morecambe twice already this season, winning 3-0 at the Mazuma Stadium in the reverse League One meeting and also 2-0 at Hillsborough in the Emirates FA Cup.

“We keep marching on and I’ve said that to the boys,” Moore said. “In the changing room at Ipswich I told them we turn this page now and get ready for Tuesday.


“We have two home games coming up but I am looking no further than Tuesday night.

“I got back on the bus at Ipswich, lap top straight open and started looking at Morecambe for Tuesday night.

“We’ll assess the group when they come in on Monday, hopefully all of them unscathed from the weekend and ready to go again.”

The gaffer is also hopeful of more options in terms of the squad ahead of back-to-back S6 fixtures.

Lee Gregory (illness), Jack Hunt (dead leg), Mallik Wilks (calf) and Reece James (ankle) all missed out on a place in the squad at Portman Road.

The manager continued: “Hopefully on Tuesday we will have two or three of them back.

“To lose those four players on the eve of the Ipswich game was a blow as they were definitely going to be in the squad on Saturday.”
