On managing players’ workload

We are pleased with the win. The games are coming thick and fast and we need to make sure we are managing the players. Josh Windass and Dennis Adeniran are back in training but they need volume. Harlee Dean has picked up a little strain. He is getting intensive treatment so we will have to see how he is doing. I have got to manage the squad as best as I possibly can. We have picked up some knocks in training.

Moore on missed chances

We missed gilt-edged chances. We scored in the end from the penalty spot but I think we deserved it. The boys worked really hard. They kept moving the ball and asking questions of them. I am pleased we got the goal and the clean sheet.

Darren Moore on staying patient

The players stayed patient and calm. We settled them down at half time. We wanted to get the three points and we did that. Maybe earlier on in the season we would not have got anything from the game. They came with a low block and we created 17 chances. Credit to the boys.

We’ll bring you whatever Darren Moore says after that win here

Final Whistle - A huge roar

Peacock-Farrell plucks the ball out of the air from a Crewe corner and a roar drenched in relief comes from the stands. The referee blows the final whistle and it’s a win for Wednesday, but didn’t they make hard work of it!

Kamberi picks up a loose ball in the box and hits a shot that Richards saves well. Not the easiest chance missed on the night but another one that probably should have resulted in a goal

Nerves setting in a little

1-0 up is never going to be enough to stave off any nerves in the stands and there are a few groans coming from the fans. Wedneday have got a bit sloppy with their play and we all know it just takes one chance for Crewe to get something here
