Sheffield Wednesday manager, Darren Moore, wanted all three points against Lincoln City, but is now making sure they shift their focus to Bristol Rovers.

The Owls play host to Joey Barton and his side on Wednesday evening as they return to Hillsborough in league action for the first time in a while, but Moore was frustrated that they don’t go into the game on the back of a win rather than a 1-1 draw.

"I'm greedy,” he told the media. “I wanted to win the Lincoln game… My frustration is that everything we had worked on was there in the game, but we didn't put the ball in the back of the net.”

It’s not the end of the world, though, and with two more matches coming up this week there is a big opportunity to pick up six points and close the gap on the two teams above them.

He went on to say, "We have got two wonderful games at home to look forward to. We will focus on Bristol Rovers first on Wednesday night and that will be another tough game for us.

"We will look to make sure we are in the best frame of mind and shape to contest the game.

"We will pick the bones out of Lincoln and show it to the players. With the games coming up, it is important we learn from it.

Meanwhile, it was confirmed that Wednesday striker, Lee Gregory, has made it into the latest League One Team of the Week, with the experienced forward earning plaudits for his performance at the LNER Stadium.

Gregory now has three goals in two games, and will be hoping to add to that this week with two home matches at Hillsborough on the horizon.

Wednesday saw both Ben Heneghan and Will Vaulks leave the field with injuries on Saturday, and it remains to be seen if either of them will be able to feature at all against the Gas and Burton Albion this week.

Moore’s side are currently three points off second place in League One, and five points off leaders, Plymouth Argyle.
