You only have to look at the reaction

4 March 2023

As the Owls extended the run of resistance to 21 league games, with 20 clean sheets to boot, Darren Moore pointed to one particular incident that encapsulated the spirit of the squad.

Minutes after Jaden Brown scored the only goal of the game, the defender raced back to deny Peterborough a leveller, pinching the ball from the toe of Kwame Poku with the striker bearing down on Cameron Dawson.

The passion of Aden Flint as he acknowledged Brown’s key intervention was not lost on the gaffer, who told


“You only have to look at that reaction of Aden Flint to see what the clean sheet means to the players.

“As a former defender myself, I know that feeling, you give everything to protect your goal and fair play to Aden, because he showed what it means for everyone to see.

“Jaden did ever so well to not only get back but just get his foot in at that crucial point to spoil the chance.

“And fair play to Baz as well, the way he sprinted back near the end to stop an attack on the edge of the box was wonderful to see.


“It’s infectious and it’s felt by the whole team, they are giving everything they have got.”

Moore was full of praise for matchwinner Brown, who went one better than last weekend’s assist at Charlton having been drafted back into the team at The Valley.

He added: “I’m really pleased for Jaden, he’s come back into the frame, he got the assist at Charlton and he’s got the winning goal today.


“It’s taken a little nick but Jaden is claiming it and rightly so, I’d be doing the same, it looked like it was going in anyway.

“He’s had a real influence at both ends of the pitch today, it’s another win and we move on to next week at Portsmouth.”
