Darren Moore was delighted his side kept their feet on the ground against Wycombe following last week’s victory over Premier League Newcastle.
A Will Vaulks screamer was enough to give Wednesday a 1-0 win at Adams Park and the gaffer was glad to see the Owls show focus and resilience after beating the top-flight Magpies in the FA Cup third round.
Moore said: “I’m pleased with the boys because after last week’s cup heroics, it’s very easy to get distracted, but we spoke on Monday about getting our feet back on the floor and continuing our work and I’m pleased they’ve done it today.
“The resilience that we’ve been keeping in the last weeks and months, we knew we would need that today.
“We knew we had to match them for tempo and have a solid platform and we had that today.
“We had to shuffle the pack due to Mark McGuinness going back and I thought it was the right game to bring Reece James onto the left wing and bring Akin in. We moved Dom Iorfa into the middle with Liam Palmer to his right and Jack Hunt came back in, so there was a reshuffle.
“Everyone knows their jobs and their responsibilities and apart from a couple of crosses and long range efforts, I can’t remember Cameron Dawson having to do much.”
Vaulks will take the plaudits following his match-winner in the first half and Moore praised the midfielder for his strong display.
The Wednesday gaffer added: “Will Vaulks scored a goal like that at Port Vale earlier in the season and when he catches them clean like that, they’re going to put any goalkeeper in trouble.
“I think the goal was worthy to win any game. I thought his all round game was good, he competed well in midfield and he was solid.”
