We take the rough with the smooth

21 March 2023

The Owls’ unbeaten run finally came to an end after a thrilling clash at Barnsley saw the hosts run out 4-2 winners.

The derby could quite feasibly have gone the way of Wednesday and on another day that may well have been the case.

But Darren Moore rued missed chances whilst acknowledging his side’s incredible run of resistance.

He told swfc.co.uk: “First and foremost I went around every player in that dressing room and congratulated them all on the unbeaten run because that takes incredible mentality.

“The run is over now, we accept that and we have to dust ourselves down and get ready for Sunday. We take the rough with the smooth, this is the business we are in.

“In terms of the game tonight, it was decided on chances. I don’t want to take anything away from Barnsley and credit to Michael Duff and his team.

“But they have had, I think, five shots on goal and scored with four of them. We’ve had more chances overall but not taken them and that was the difference really.

“It was a great advert for League One football and credit to both teams. When we got it back to 2-2, I thought there was only one winner and the points were coming back with us to Sheffield.

“But it wasn’t to be tonight so we look forward, we never look back, the next game is the most important one and that is Forest Green on Sunday back in front of the cameras.”
