The new Wednesday boss has had a baptism of fire at his new club, losing back-to-back games against Rotherham United and Reading as the Owls’ hopes of Championship survival were handed a couple more blows.

Now he has a full week to work with his players for the first time since his arrival at Hillsborough, and he says that it’s imperative that they stick together in the weeks ahead.

Speaking to the media at the Madejski Stadium, Moore said, “I knew the task coming into it, and what was ahead of us, but it’s a wonderful challenge. You have to have a great inner belief, and belief in the players and the structure of the club.

“It’s a wonderful club that has probably just lost its way a little bit, but it’s still all to play despite what’s happened this season.

“We’ve got to get back on the training ground and get working again…

“It’s essential that they stick together, that’s got to be the main focus. We’re have a tough week where things have gone against us, but it’s a week when we’re also trying to put things right.”

Wednesday’s next game sees them face Norwich City next Sunday as they return to S6 and look to make sure they don’t equal 2012’s torrid run of seven straight defeats.
