Sheffield Wednesday boss Darren Moore on the 'hidden hurdle' facing Owls in League One

Sheffield Wednesday boss Darren Moore has admitted that his team are yet to fully get to grips with life in League One but he is confident they will soon be flying again.

A big boost for the Owls

Major Sheffield Wednesday injury update with key man in, one out of Shrewsbury Town clash

Sheffield Wednesday have been dealt a major injury boost ahead of their League One clash with Shrewsbury Town this weekend.

That’s all from Darren today..

Stay tuned for the very latest throughout the afternoon..

There’s nothing at the moment. If and when something does come up for any of our young players we will be happy to listen to it.

If we feel it is right for them. We can’t just throw them out anywhere. They’re good young players for us, we don’t want them to go out and sit on the bench. They need to play men’s football.

There will be moments this season where you see that, there will be times we make changes like we did at Rotherham - five changes.

There will be different variations of it and it will be dictated by the fixtures and how players are feeling at the time.

If we can keep players on the pitch, we can see that consistency. But there will be different players for different matches as well.

It will be difficult to say and unfair for me to say. There are so many different teams that carry different strengths and weaknesses.

In terms of saying what the best XI is, we have to work to getting a squad up up that level and standard. We still feel as a team we’re working towards that.

As the weeks go by the team is getting better and stronger for it.

He had a little knock in training on his knee. We had to disperse it and get it away which we have done and he’s trained all week. That’s really pleasing for him.

He’s been fine. For Flo he’d want that consistent run of games to get going, we feel he’s ready and from his perspective he wants those games.

You feel you’re getting better and stronger. He’s been perfectly fine and his contribution has been good. He scored a good goal at Rotherham which was pleasing.

DM on the League One experience of his players

You may say football is football and it’s a talented squad but I think the players are still getting used to football.

There’s not a lot of experience here at this level in terms of the league itself. I want us to embrace that and to embrace the hurdles that lie ahead of us. It draws passion from me I want to express to the players.

In order for Sheffield Wednesday to win games we have to be at our very best. That’s what we have to strive to.

If we get to the high levels we have hit, we have to aspire to be at that level.

They’re a solid team that hasn’t had the experience they’ve wanted. Steve Cotterill is a leader, a man’s man and he’ll feel slowly but surely they’ll improve.

They’ll feel hard done by with some of the results they’ve had.

We expect a difficult game tomorrow.

We felt with him coming over he hadn’t had much game time. It was great for him to get off the bench. He’s had a full week’s training this week.

Any time we feel ready we’ll throw him in and give him those match minutes.
