Sheffield Wednesday man could join Stoke City this summer, West Ham close in on £2m bargain deal
Sheffield Wednesday's dispiriting run of poor results continued last weekend, as new manager Darren Moore saw his side slump to a 3-0 defeat away to Reading, in a game that saw his side fail to cope with the attacking threat of the Royals following the dismissal of defender Julian Borner before the half-hour mark.
Speaking after the defeat, which sees the Owls still remain trapped in the relegation zone, Moore claimed: “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.”
With no midweek game to play this week, Moore now has plenty of time to prepare his side for their weekend clash against table-toppers Norwich City - a side who narrowly beat the Owls back in December - this Sunday afternoon.
