All the reaction from Darren Moore as Sheffield Wednesday hold on at Portsmouth

Sheffield Wednesday have made the long trip down to Portsmouth for a midweek tie at Fratton Park.

Tuesday, 7th December 2021, 9:50 pm

The Owls were in a good run of form in League One going into the game, with Darren Moore’s side having gone 10 games unbeaten, however will be tested against an in-form Pompey that are starting to get into a bit of a groove under Danny Cowley now.

Both sides could potentially climb into the Play-Off places if they get a win this evening, and both will be desperate to get back to winning ways after they were knocked out of the Papa John’s Trophy and FA Cup respectively by lower league opposition.

We’ll be with you every step of the way to bring you all the latest updates from down south, with Alex Miller and Joe Crann making sure you don’t miss a beat.

  • Wednesday haven’t played Pompey since back in 2003
  • The Owls are on a 10-game unbeaten run in League One

I’ll have a look at Chey for this weekend - we hope to hear positive news on him.

He’s been colossus, and this game would have been tailor made for him. We’ll see where he’s at in the next 24 hours.

DM on Gregory and Windass

Lee said to me that he wanted to come off as a precaution - he said he felt himself tightening up. We didn’t want to take a risk.

With Josh he had a couple of parts where he was really sore, and I took the decision not to bring him.

Darren Moore says that he picked up a bit of a hip injury in training - so wasn’t available.

He had to perform for us tonight. We needed him to perform - and he did.

DM on the performance

The players were resilient and dogged tonight... To come here without a recognised centre-back, you have to credit the back three and the other players.

It was a resilient performance from us and you could see the appreciation from the away fans.

And breathe...

It was hard-fought, and Bailey Peacock-Farrell has to take a lot of credit, but Wednesday leave with a point. Unbeaten in 11.

Wednesday putting their bodies on the line to keep Pompey out... Palmer again to the rescue as it remains 0-0.

Still plenty of time for the Owls to hold on...
