Darren Moore will be watching from home once again as he recovers from Coronavirus-related complications, and the thoughts of everyone at The Star continue to go out to him as he works his way back to health.

Wednesday, meanwhile, need to get their acts together if they’re to keep their already slim chances of survival alive. If they lose tonight and Derby County win, then they’re officially down.

We’ll be here for the blow-by-blow at Hillsborough.

  • A defeat for SWFC and a Derby County win would relegate the Owls
  • They drew 1-1 with Bristol City last time out
  • Darren Moore will still be unavailable

JS on Kachunga and Brown

They’ll have a day off tomorrow to rest and recover - although we still want them to do certain things.

Kacha was ill after the game, and Izzy showed signs of illness on Thursday. They could potentially be back for Saturday.

If you keep a clean sheet you’ve got a chance of three points, so we’re delighted.

He’s a lot better today, spoke just before the game. He was in contact, which was pleasing. He’s a lot better.

It’s too early to say if he’ll be back before the end of the season, he’s not out of the woods yet.

We can’t worry about that, that’ll take care of itself. We’ll concentrate on ourselves.

We spoke at halftime about being in this position in the lead... We needed to make sure we didn’t finish the job.

Josh has been excellent for us, he’s a constant threat and is always running behind... He does that for us, gives us an outlet, and he’s a good finisher too.

There were 11 characters out there tonight, plus the ones that came on. It was a good squad performance.

We have to win the next three thought, it’s as simple as that. We have to concentrate on ourselves.

We have our style and way of playing. And if we can get the result, that’s the best thing.

There are leaders out there, and you want them organising themselves. It’s what you want to see.

We’ve had it since we’ve been here, but results haven’t gone our way. It was a spirited performance.

It gives us belief, and helps us stay positive. We’ve got three games, and hopefully we can win all of them.

They’ll take confidence from holding on to the win today.
